Million Dollar Bash
Every record in which Sandy Denny was involved had its Bob Dylan song. This one comes from the Basement Tapes, as do Si Tu Dois Partir and Fotheringay’s Too Much of Nothing.
On the original Fairport version, released on Unhalfbricking, Dave Swarbrick plays mandolin on this track. The verses are sung by Marc Ellington, Ashley Hutchings, Sandy Denny, Richard Thompson and Simon Nicol, in this order.
A live recording from Cropredy 1983 was released on the cassette The Boot - 1983 Fairport Reunion. This song also appears on Fairport’s 25th Anniversary Concert, with new lyrics by Ashley Hutchings, who sings lead vocals.
Please find the lyrics for this song at Bob Dylan’s website.
