Sandy Denny: A boxful of treasures 1

This is the first disc of a wonderful box set for all Fairport Convention and Sandy Denny fans: 5 CDs with lots of unreleased and altrnate takes (the fifth also being made of home recordings). On this first youn can find songs from her early career: as a solo artist and with the Strawbs.
See Amazon for the tracklist.
I also hope some of you who do not know Sandy will try to listen to this because she is one of the the most beautuful voices of all times and, to me, I have to confess that it is hard to be as struck by a voice as I was by listening for the first time to Sandy's "Who knows where the time goes?" as performed by her with Fairport convention. Here there is her first version (along wih the Strawbs).
You may want to read some reviews on this box @ the BBC site or @ Artistdirect.
And on this fan site you can find her discography, while on this other one lyrics and tabs.

Thankyou very much for posting this boxset.

However there was a problem with the unzipping of disc 5, as it said the tracks No 7 and No 13 were corrupt.

Any chance you could redo those tracks please?

Thankyou :-)
