who’s canny enough to know where to apply the extra’s” fRoots
Quotes about Linde sings Sandy:
"I got intrigued about the different versions of this song (Who knows where the time goes). It's been covered so many times, by so many diverse people, from Rufus Wainwright to Judy Collins, but I think my favourite comes from the artist Linde Nijland"
Tom Robinson (BBC6)
"Linde Nijland has given Sandy Denny's music the respect it deserves, and made a lovely and fresh record that shows off her beautiful voice as well as her good taste".
Joe Boyd (Producer Fairport Convention, Nick Drake i.e.)
"That prickly, intimate sense of the singer sharing the same air as the rest of us"
"Silky weaving vocals... she manages the impossible"
Iain Matthews (Pop Singer)
