Fairport Convention's first frontwoman - always destined to be overshadowed by the unmatchable legacy of Sandy Denny. but with a plangency of tone and phrasing all her own:


Her covers of the two Joni Mitchell songs on Fairport's first LP (among the very first recordings of Mitchell's material anywhere IIRC) are exemplary IMHO:



Mind you, I love the whole album - complete with an 18 year old Richard Thompson more-than hinting at future glories Thumbs Up

Judy was much noted for her habit of knitting on stage while not actually singing! Big smile

RIP

Very sad news. You put it so well in your first couple of sentences, fluddite. It took me back to my youth, she was so cool.
