Silver Threads and Golden Needles

[Dick Reynolds, Jack Rhodes]

This used to be the regular encore of Fotheringay, but their album recording (with Sandy Denny, vocals; Gerry Conway, drums; Jerry Donahue, lead guitar; Pat Donahue, bass guitar; Trevor Lucas, guitar; and probably Gerry Hogan, pedal steel guitar) was never released until 2004 on the 5CD Fledg'ling Sandy Denny anthology A Boxful of Treasures. Finally, in 2008 Fledg'ling Records published it on the Fotheringay 2 CD.

Sandy recorded this song again for her last solo album, Rendezvous in an arrangement that seems to have been inspired by Richard Thompson: She sings against an all brass arrangement played by the Silver Band.
