Sandy Denny and the Strawbs is a compilation album of songs by Sandy Denny and Strawbs. The album is a reworking of tapes recorded by the band in Copenhagen in the July 1967. Tracks from those recordings were first released on the Pickwick budget label in 1973 under the name All Our Own Work. The track listing on this album is slightly different and some of the songs have the original string arrangements that also were recorded in 1967.

Recording[edit]

Recorded in Copenhagen, Denmark 1967.

The liner notes state "The original 1967 sessions" although the liner notes for All Our Own Work wrongly state August 1968. This is a discrepancy as both albums derive from the same source recordings. Joe Boyd writes he and Denny listened to a white label pressing of the album shortly before the release of Sgt. Pepper (June 1967).

  • Gustav Winckler – producer
  • Ivar Rosenberg – engineer
  • Karl Emil Knudsen – co-ordination
