All Our Own Work is an album by Sandy Denny and the Strawbs, recorded in 1967 but not released until 1973. The album was recorded in Copenhagen, Denmark, and contains an early recording of one of Sandy Denny's best known songs "Who Knows Where the Time Goes?". Denny later recorded this song as a member of Fairport Convention. The album was released by Pickwick Records, who in the 1970s specialised in budget releases of deleted record company catalogues.
Dave Cousins, the leader of the Strawbs, saw Sandy Denny singing in a nightclub, and invited her to join his band. A demo recording the band made with Denny was passed by a British born Danish DJ, Tom Browne, to Karl Knudsen, the head of Sonet Records in Denmark, who offered them a record deal, and brought them over to Copenhagen. They recorded the album in a cinema in 1967, with Gustav Winckler as producer. Cousins wrote the bulk of the songs, though Denny contributed "Who Knows Where the Time Goes?". Shortly after the recording, Denny left the Strawbs to join Fairport Convention, with whom she also recorded "Who Knows Where the Time Goes?". The Strawbs recorded and released their official debut album, Strawbs (without Denny), in 1969.
Pickwick Records, who in the 1970s specialised in budget releases of deleted record company catalogues, released the album in the UK in 1973 on their Hallmark label. A remastered version was released in 2010 by Witchwood Records.
The 2010 reissue on CD is produced by Chris Tsangarides and contains the following additional tracks:
Tracks 1 to 9 contain outtakes, demos, and original versions (with the strings that were omitted on the Hallmark release). These were all previously released on Sandy Denny and the Strawbs in 1991. Tracks 10 to 12 are previously unreleased demos.
