Who Knows Where the Time Goes? is a retrospective compilation of the work of English folk rock singer Sandy Denny issued in 1985. It is a four LP boxed set released on the Island Records label in the UK and Germany and on Hannibal/Carthage Records in the US, later reissued as a three CD set. It includes released and previously unreleased recordings from 1967 to 1977, live performances, outtakes and demos from Denny's solo career, and with Fairport Convention, Fotheringay and Strawbs.

The set included a twenty-page booklet featuring many photographs of Denny, her family, and friends, as well as lyrics of most the songs, and instrumental credits.

Reception[edit]

Allmusic praised the album, describing it as "[a] magnificently produced ... complete portrait of Sandy Denny", Denny herself as "the haunting singer, the melodic, mournful songwriter", and summed up the collection as "[t]he album makes the case for Denny as a major folk artist."[4]

Rolling Stone's David Fricke described the set as "worthy of her largely unrecognized talent.. (and) has captured her finest hours for all time"[5]
