This is a tough one for me.Sandy had a voice both for folk ,(British) and rock and she was accomplished songwriter too.Remember The Battle Of Evermore by Led Zeppelin.Imho she completely outshined Plant there.She was the only singer other than Plant that can be heard on any of LZ records.And for a good reason. She had a voice so powerful that she almost didn't need a microphone but smooth and delicate(as she was as a person) at the same time.She would have blown off the stage any singer of her time.Sandy was insecure and fragile (somehow I like her even better because of that)- a totally different person than Gracie.
But I like our old broad best so Sandy is my second favorite ever.
