180g Vinyl from One of Britain's Finest Singer-Songwriters!

The North Star Grassman and the Ravens is a 1971 album by English folk rock singer-songwriter Sandy Denny. Built mostly around her own compositions, The North Star Grassman and the Ravens is distinguished by its elusive lyrics and unexpected harmonies.

Denny became a solo artist because her previous group Fotheringay dissolved when producer Joe Boyd left to take up a job with Warner Brothers in California. This happened when the band were halfway through a second album that was left unfinished until 2008 when it came out as Fotheringay 2. Denny then launched the sequence of solo albums that underlie the claim that she is one of Britain's finest recent singer-songwriters.

"With a gifted crew of U.K. folk-rockers backing her up, the sessions confirmed that Denny was still one of the most gifted and thoughtful vocalists to emerge from the British folk community, and she was also a talent to be reckoned with as a songwriter...a fine album full of great songs and inspired vocal performances." -Mark Deming, allmusic.com
