    Great album.
    It was the third LP they released that year !
    And it includes "Farewell' Farewell" with Sandy's sublime vocal. The guitar playing is pretty good, too :D

    You have impeccable taste, @EllroyJames

    Huge Fairport fan. I began with "In Real Time" and went backwards and forwards. I had listened to Dave Swarbrick for a number of years before realizing FC was worth checking out. Also got into Richard Thompson about the same time as FC (~ 1988)

    Their best album, by popular consent. An Institution, in the UK- and one of the great crossover pioneers, instrumental in creating Folk Rock, as a sub-genre.

    One of those records that many of us bought as vinyl, then later as a CD.......

    Man what a fantastic record. I got a copy on 180 gram vinyl a few years back and it just sounds incredible. Great material, great performances.

    While I was aware of Fairport Convention decades ago, I didn't become a fan until about 5 or 6 years ago when a local record shop had a Sandy Denny retrospective on, which included Fairport Convention material. I've been slowly making my way since then.

    As a matter of fact, as soon as this Clannad cd finishes, it will be Fairport Convention going in!

    L & L is a great album, but they imploded soon after its release. Too much talent for one band... :(

    Bands didn't muck around in those days. Album release, gig, rinse & repeat... :cool:

    "Tam Lin" is brilliant.

    I must have first seen FC as support act for Jethro Tull around 1988.

    I was so into Fairport for awhile that my wife and I went on one of those tours organized by Richard Thompson's ex-2nd-wife to follow them around for a week, culminating with 3 days at the Cropredy Festival. The next week we went north through Northumberland and wound up at "Festival Fringe" in Edinburgh for three days, including an RT solo gig. By the end of that I was almost used to warm beer!

    The first clip isn't SD. It's their first female singer, Ms. Judy Dyble,
    who recently passed.

    R.I.P. :cry:

    Sandy, Richard....and Jerry Donahue? All together?

    Great record. My sister played this all the time, back in the day- before I'd even heard of Fairport.

    I don't think Richard Thompson was in Fotheringay.
