What a shame! For the band, the audience and all concerned.

I was trying to remember which was the really wet Cropredy year!
We were watching RT down the front, turned round and the field had emptied!

Thoughts from the Hive mind?

As a slight aside, interesting to see Cambridge Folk Fest advertising hard……


Doesn't it always?

I know there were a number of Issues on the original release, some tracks not playing, flimsy boxes etc and to be honest however authentic of the era the limited numbered  framed print of the cover was, I doubt i will ever put it on my wall. I had no issues with the discs and it was a nice pack...if not packing. It does tend to sit there and tracks that were downloaded onto the mp3 player pop up once in awhile but I always go back to the original albums and only one or two of the demo tracks. Saying that most of my boxed sets get little play once bought, read and looked at listened to then it's back in the box, for fear of breaking anyhting. A reissue would be good for those who want it and missed out.


If I buy it again it will be a luxury item or an investment-  I have everything featuring Sandy already- Fairport, Strawbs, Solo-  often in more than one format and/or edition. Yes I was disappointed with the broken tray, the scratched discs and the boring generic card sleeves. It would be nice if a reissue rectified these things.

That is not true of my box sets, particularly the Al Stewart and Ian Hunter ones

It isn't perfect and I may make other choices on a different day but here is my best shot.


It's pretty good. Winterlong is out of its proper time zone, and you're much more disposed towards ATGR than I was. I reckon that between the two of us, we've got it licked... somewhere.

Yes, Winterlong is showing the Decade release date. I must go through my library and correct those dates in the metadata but it is a bit of a faff! Funnily enough I didn't realise I had picked so many from ATGR until I had finished. I just went through all the tracks in alphabetical order, chose favourites and whittled down (I only had to remove one song). I'm not too surprised though as ATGR was probably the first NY album I heard in full (either that or Comes A Time) so was pretty influential for me. I was tempted to include a solo performance of Helpless, maybe from Unplugged as I love that song but then, what to leave out?


ATGR was the first album I bought back in my teenage years. Heard it played at my cousin's house on a tiny portable player and was just drawn in by the raw emotion of the album. With Harvest following it was a formative time for my musical awareness and taste and those albums were played and played. Choosing 90mins of tracks from my collection is just too tricky.

Booked to see Lady Nade sings Nina Simone at Settle Victoria Hall on the 5th of October, love the two aspects Lady Nade and the songs of Nina Simone so all will be good.

It's the only thing resembling a decent song on the album (unlike, say, Trans where there are a number of excellent songs) imho but you'd have to really hate Neil to get that - or tbh I'd argue anything from the last 30 years - onto a C90s worth studio Best Of...


I would agree with you, except for the 30 year thing. 23 years for me, as I consider Silver & Gold to be one his finest.

I've not tried in c22.75 years...will have another go.
