ONE OF THE DELIGHTS of Mick Houghton’s compelling, meticulous Sandy Denny biography, I’ve Always Kept A Unicorn – an extract from which can be found in this month’s issue of MOJO magazine – is the way it leads you back to Denny’s music: not just her stunning performances with Fairport Convention and her heartbreaking vocals on those early ’70s solo albums, but also to lesser-known works of beauty – tracks cut between her first demo in 1967 and her untimely death in 1978. As an audio companion to MOJO’s feature and Houghton’s book, we present 10 musical highlights from Denny’s short, tumultuous career, including some ultra-rare footage of her performances with Fairport Convention and Fotheringay (which also featured Sandy's partner Trevor Lucas, pictured with her above).
