Us and Them ‘Fading Within The Dwindling Sun’

10” colour vinyl

Keith Jones FdM -

'This is something of a dream come true for me. Sandy Denny is my favourite singer - ever - no question; anyone who tries to reinterpret a song that belongs to Sandy is on dangerous ground; but Britt from Scandinavian duo Us and Them has a remarkably pure and warm voice that is perfectly suited to the task, as she proved when they covered 'By The Time It Gets Dark' two years ago for a Fruits de Mer 7”.

With my ‘encouragement’, Us and Them have spent over a year working on five songs that Sandy made her own and, to my ears, it's time very well spent - Britt's soft tone just adds to the beauty of the songs, as does partner Anders' sympathetic backing, aided by Tony Swettenham's Mellotron.

I'm probably a bit too close to the songs and the project as a whole to say anything constructive here – but do please take a listen, the recordings speak for themselves - this is Fruits de Mer's first 10" release and we all wanted it to be special - I think it is.'

1. Winter Winds (written by Sandy Denny)  2:07 2. Farewell, Farewell (written by Richard Thompson) 3:21 3. Next Time Around (written by Sandy Denny) 6:05 4. Banks Of The Nile (trad.) 8:57 5. Take Away The Load (written by Sandy Denny) 1:59
