FOTHERINGAY - Too Much of Nothing(Album) (1970)

Fotheringay were a Folk group formed when Sandy Denny left Fairport Convention and it only lasted about a year as Sandy was being pressurised to have a solo career. Dylan's Too Much of Nothing appeared on their 1970 self titled album album..

Fotheringay performed Too Much of Nothing  on  the Radio Bremen TV programme 'Beat-Club'  on November 28, 1970 and it appears on a DVD release featuring this show.. This video is shown below.

There was album in released in 2011 called Fotheringay Essen 1970 and this also contained another version of Too Much of Nothing. Unfortunaely I have not got this version for you at this time.

9 out of 10 for the album version.
10 out of 10 for the funkier live version and for the effortless magic of Sandy Denny's more prominent contribution. Pity they broke up so soon.

I'm with Brendan. Sandy's greater contribution lifts the live version.
