5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Live Set but released before 28 Jun 2012
By Hawk
Format:Audio CD
This is an excellent live set from Fairport with a good mix of old classics and also what at the time were new tracks from the "Wood and the Wire" album. However, the main reason for writing something here is to let people know that this was previously released as "Journeyman's Grace" a few years ago with a similar designed cover only with a rustic brown background.
So don't get too excited by this if, like me, you have many Fairport CDs and are looking for more. This isn't the first time this has happened with Fairport live albums. I can understand things being out of print and having to be re released but I don't know why it has to have a different title and redesigned cover.
Anyway, for those of you who don't have this album and who enjoy the more recent incarnations of the band this is a well recorded and vibrant performance and well worth getting. Check out the reviews for Journeyman's Grace!

5.0 out of 5 stars Really "Journeyman's Grace" 17 July 2012
By Colin
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As has been said this is really the previously released "Journeyman's Grace" in very slightly new clothes. When playing the CD in iTunes or Media Player or even my car system it shows the album under its old title of "Journeyman's Grace" not "And the band played on", so they haven't even bothered to change the data on the disc. Still a great double live album of one of the more recent Fairport incarnations (still miss Sandy, Richard and Dave) Definitely worth getting if you don't already have it under another title. Perhaps it would be more honest if Amazon flagged the fact that this was a re-release of Journeyman's Grace under a different top level title.

3.0 out of 5 stars See 'Journeyman's Grace' 12 Sep 2012
By Joseph Shelby - Published on
This is actually a re-release of 2003's Journeyman's Grace by an alternate label. The show was recorded (and filmed) on the winter tour of that year.

It is actually a very good show, but I'm not sure which download (this, or Journeyman's Grace itself) is better to buy to support the artist.
