(Jan. 15, 2015): Fairport Convention – Who Knows Where The Time Goes

From the 1969 album, Unhalfbricking.  This is a Sandy Denny tune.  Denny was the second wife to Trevor Lucas.  It always amused me that he is listed on this LP as playing triangle.  The picture here is of the U.S. album cover.  The U.K Island release had a older couple standing in front of a garden gate.
