Previously unheard material recorded on a quarter track tape machine at Alex Campbell’s home on August 5th 1967, captured just one month after Sandy recorded All Our Own Work. Unknown to exist for decades until a cassette turned up recently, Strawbs’ Dave Cousins took it to have transferred to digital at Abbey Road, and was stunned to hear Sandy and Alex singing, laughing and joking as though they were in the room with him. Edited down and mastered, it’s a home recording, but what atmosphere!

This recording shows Sandy as she was when I first met her – bright and funny, with a voice that could pin your ears back or melt your heart. I’m so pleased to be able share this with you. - Dave Cousins/ Strawbs

“…A haunting recording, capturing Sandy’s voice pre-fame as she relaxes in a flat in Glasgow with Alex and Patsy Campbell and friends….similar to the Nick Drake home recordings, its intimacy transports the listener through a window in time to a place where many possibilities had yet to be revealed.” – Shindig
