Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Bruce Eder
The perfect -- and we do mean perfect -- complement to Hannibal Records' Who Knows Where the Time Goes box. Attic Tracks so named to distinguish it from Dylan's Basement Tapes is an 18-song collection from Australia's Raven Records consisting of unreleased songs, outtakes, and extreme rarities, recorded by Sandy Denny and her former husband, the late Trevor Lucas.

The big surprise, however, is Lucas' gently soulful cover of the Australian hit "Girls on the Avenue," on which his voice has an extraordinary "haunt count" and the accompaniment is nothing less than ravishing, in a mid-'70s pop vein -- Paul McCartney should only make such records! A unique collection, and a necessary addition to the possessions of any fan of Fairport Convention or Sandy Denny.
