    I recently bought her CD in HMV for just £9 and I can tell you now that it is probably the best thing since I discovered Sandy Denny and other members of the Fairport clan.

    Has anyone heard of her?

    She disappeared after the release of her second album but isn't dead - she just disappeared.

    Anyway, I thought it would be cool to talk to people who have discovered this fossil of an artist.

    No, i don't think she is back but the stuff she made back in the 60s/70s is absolutely amazing! The whole fairport convention crew are so cool and talented. I also like Vashti Bunyan (from London i think) and all other sorts like Joni Mitchell. Oh how their music rules over the pop of today....

    Yeah, and the likes of Shirley Collins and sort of Davy Graham.
