Sandy Denny “Next Time Around” (1971)

Film-score arranger Harry Robinson added strings to Sandy Denny’s “Next Time Around”, a cryptogram about former boyfriend Jackson C. Frank  and “Wretched Wilbur”. Robinson would arrange strings for Denny’s further albums as well as for Nick Drake and other artists signed to the same company. The North Star Grassman and the Ravens was co-produced by Richard Thompson, who also performs on several tracks

“Richard Thompson produced and played unobtrusively on this, her best album. It has a deceptive simplicity, in lieu of the grandiose arrangements that muck up her later records.”
