Sandy Denny - Like An Old Fashioned Waltz (1974)

Sandy Denny was an English singer-songwriter, best known for her role as lead singer for folk-rock band Fairport Convention.

In 1973 Sandy Denny recorded her third solo album, which represented something of a stylistic shift for her. It moved away from her English folk roots, instead focusing on a piano-based songs with rich string arrangements (apparently in an attempt to appeal to a wider audience). It also featured a little jazz, with with the inclusion of two old standards. All the other songs were Denny originals.
It was a fine album, and Denny put a band together to tour in support of it. However its release was delayed and the tour never took off. By the time the album finally saw release in 1974, she had actually rejoined Fairport Convention and gone on tour with them, and would stay with her old band for another studio album.
