FOTHERINGAY anthologized

“Nothing More”: that’s the title of a first-ever FOTHERNGAY box set. And the title seems ridiculous, given that a several exhaustive Sandy Denny collections have seen the light in the last few years, including the 19-disc set and a set of her Beeb performances. Yet something seems to always remain out of scope, so focusing on a particular period of the late great singer’s career makes a lot of sense. That’s why these 3 CDs and a DVD, out on March 30th, might be an ultimate word in her own band’s story. They comprise the group’s only album, released in in 1970, and its planned follow-up, brought to a fruition by guitarist Jerry Donahue in 2008, both bearing bonus tracks, plus concert tapes and rarest videos.

Some of the BBC cuts and Rotterdam’s cuts were issued before, some weren’t – only on bootlegs – but the Beat Club sessions clips were limited, and this scribe failed to help Jerry found the rest of those, yet now they are there which makes this box a true treasure.
