SANDY DENNY AND THE STRAWBS
ALL OUR OWN WORK: THE COMPLETE SESSIONS
Due for release on 14 June: the expanded collector's edition of the Strawbs' very first abum, recorded with Sandy Denny in Copenhagen in 1967. The lavishly illustrated packaging includes extracts from Dave Cousins' diary of the time and never before seen pictures of Sandy.
The master tapes have been remastered by Chris Tsangarides and sound fantastic, bringing out elements of the music we've never heard before on either the old Pickwick release in 1973 or the Hannibal release (Sandy And The Strawbs).
And there are various demos and outtakes from the period, including two Dave Cousins songs "Indian Summer" and "The Falling Leaves" which have never before seen the light of day, and a version of "Pieces of 79 and 15" with a Cousins lead vocal.
