Fairport Convention, with Sandy Denny singing "Who knows where the time goes".

    A picture of penguins is never off-topic.

  2. Sandy Denny had such a beautiful voice. I loved the Fairport Convention; I used to have their "Leige and Leaf" album. (Not even sure if that's the exact title or spelling.)

    With the music biz being what it is, I'll bet Sandy Denny made more money from her background vocals on Led Zeppelin's "Battle of Evermore" than she did from all of her other work put together.
