Sandy Denny (R.I.P.) was the female voice on LZ's "The Battle of Evermore" and wrote the oft-covered "Who Knows Where The Time Goes?"

Way to erase my comment from yesterday, FRL -- it wasn't spam. Anyways, I'd put them in. Two masterpieces and a few other good-great albums. Some of the most beautiful music ever recorded.

Sorry, Chalkie. Unintentional.

Meh, it happens.

I also remember reading that Chalkie referred to Sandy Denny as "an enchantress." I agree totally. She possessed the talent, the look..... everything. Too bad it had to end the way it did.

I agree. One of the best folk bands of the era. Really beautiful melodies and shamefully underrated.

Hardly a "future" rock legend, as they have been for 50 years, you know starting a genre and all

'Matty Groves' is one Hell of a song.

I agree, Paul. And way overdue for induction into the song project too.

They've been together for 50 years? wow.
