5.0 out of 5 stars Great performances of highest quality folk-rock 3 July 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a CD remaster of the 1986 album, which itself included some tracks and alternative takes from the 1977 'Live at the LA Troubador'. The last two tracks are bonuses that also come from the earlier album.
Simon Nicol's introduction to the first track is "Thank you, this is our last number ...", while the final track is first verse of Norman Luboff's Caribbean lilt 'Yellow Bird'. Between these moments of eccentricity we are treated to an outstanding display of musicianship from the all-male, post-Sandy Denny band comprising Richard Thompson, Simon Nicol, and the three Daves - Swarbrick, Pegg and Mattacks. They play tightly together throughout, which is a feat in itself when you hear the pace at which the instrumental medleys are taken; in particular the 'Lark in the Morning medley' is suberbly performed. At the opposite end of the spectrum the slow lament 'Battle of the Somme' is played sensitively and atmospherically. The versions of 'Sloth' and 'Banks of the Sweet Primroses' here are among the best, and 'Matty Groves' is unusual in that features Richard Thompson's vocal interpretation (not, I think, available on record elsewhere).
Overall this CD manages to capture the spontaneity and atmosphere of the live performance without the crowd noise, and occasional electronic squeek, impinging on the listener's enjoyment. Apart from 'Yellow Bird' and the Thompson/Swarbrick 'Sloth' all the songs are credited to 'Trad. arr Fairport Convention' which, more than any other of the band's recorded output, makes this a true Folk/Rock album. Thoroughly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars House Full: Live at the LA Troubadour 14 Sep 2012
Format:Audio CD
Important not to mix this up with the 1970 studio album Full House or with the previous live album Live at the LA Troubadour, especially since there is some overlap with that previous live LP taken from the same 1970 shows.

This is highly recommended if you like the intense and moody early Fairport under Richard Thompson, who was soon to leave. The band play brilliantly throughout.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the greatest Fairport recording, but its OK. 29 Nov 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The musicianship is excellent but I don't think the recording quality is that good.
There is something missing here - and I think it's Sandy Denny. However, as a snapshot of Fairport at that time it is probably representative. It's a pity that more wasn't recorded, as the inclusion of "Yellow Bird" seems rather pointless.
I saw this line up as a student at Cardiff the same year - it's a pity the Cardiff concert wasn't recorded, as it was superb and they didn't do "Yellow Bird" either!

4.0 out of 5 stars Fairport Rocks LA - and it's all here for us to enjoy 5 Jan 2006
By Daniel Hedquist - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Here we find Fairpoint Convention supporting their latest release "Full House" - which solidified their move towards traditional British isles material while at the same time moving towards a harder-rocking sound. The jigs are performed at a breakneck speed, which is perphaps unnecessary, but they work well anyway with new bassist Dave Pegg laying down solid, rockin' lines. Gone are the haunting and beautiful vocals of Sandy Denny, replaced by the simpler, rustic vocals of Richard Thompson and Dave Swarbrick. The highlight may very well be "Sloth" off of the new album - this live rendition brings even more emotion and power to the tune than the studio version. Also,look to get a kick out of the final tune on the disc- "Yellow Bird" It'll make you laugh - not because it sucks - but rather because it immensely entertains. If you dig 'Liege & Lief' and 'Full House'- you must check this out

5.0 out of 5 stars Nearly the best live Fairport disc ever 5 May 2007
By coca-ebola - Published on
Format:Audio CD
The best, in terms of musical diversity and live atmosphere, is of course "AT2/The Boot" - but you'll have a tough time finding a copy of that!

This is certainly the most historically valuable of all the live Fairport discs - given that so far all the Sandy-era shows in circulation have been unsatisfying documents from her declining years. The Full House lineup is increasingly almost as revered as the 1968-9 edition, both for their compositions and arrangements (for which see that particular album) and their live performances (for which see this disc).

Humble opinions: I'm not entirely satisfied with this version of "Sloth" as the band seem to fall asleep for two minutes toward the end (there are better 1970 live takes on this song if you know where to look!)

Here, it's not the improvisations that excite but the compositions which are attacked with tremendous enthusiasm throughout. The energy level never lets up, from the first guitar and fiddle breaks of "Sir Patrick Spens" to the "Sir B Mackenzie" medley (differently constituted to the version we all know). The slower numbers, the medieval-sounding "Staines Morris" and the stately lament "Battle of the Somme" are no less powerful (although "Sweet Primroses" still sounds incomplete to me). Richard sings "Matty Groves" in his youthful "rustic" voice (which is...different, I suppose) but largely cedes solo space to Swarb, who's on-fire throughout. Speaking of which, the fiddle tunes medleys are definite highpoints - you'll never hear ballsier versions of "MacKenzie" or the Liege & Lief medley than on this disc...and then there's the album's metaphorical centerpiece, the stunningly fast and loud "Mason's Apron" medley, which suggests they could have become the Ten Years After of the folk-rock world!

This album features just a fraction of the repertoire played by the Full House line-up - but it's a pretty brilliant setlist (with one obvious exception) and in the absence of a more thorough official-bootleg type release, this will do.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amamzing Live Fairport at the Height of Their Powers 14 April 2010
By Connecticut Yankee - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This Island remaster of the 1970 Fairport live album adds improved sonics and a couple of tunes to the earlier Hannibal release (Sir B. MacKenzie, Yellow Bird). Sloth, Matty Groves, Staines Morris, Mason's Apron are all highlights, and some other reviewer somewhere in some other forum once wrote that this album features some of the "fastest jigs and reels in captivity."

But this is not speed-freak Fairport. It is a crack five-piece band in full mastery of its craft, overflowing with relaxed camaraderie and self-effacing charm. After the 1969 departure of founding bassist Ashley Hutchings and peerless vocalist Sandy Denny, guitarists Richard Thompson and Simon Nicol, along with newer members-named-Dave (fiddler Swarbrick, drummer Mattacks, and bassist Pegg) made two crucial decisions: passing the singing duties around instead of seeking a new star singer, and delving deeper into the project of electrifying the British folk tradition. The fruits of their labors are to be found on the studio album Full House, animated by powerful songwriting collaborations between Thompson and Swarbrick, and this live document of their subsequent American tour, drawn from a stint at the LA Troubadour (opening for Rick Nelson).

While legendary guest performances by Linda Ronstadt and various Led Zeppelin members are not included on the official release, this will do nicely. It captures a confident, exuberant Fairport building on its folk-rock strengths and breaking new ground. Thompson left the band shortly after this tour, bringing an end to an era, if not the legendary Fairport itself, which has jigged on, in one form or another to the present. They never made an album like this again, but then again, no one else did either. Catch classic Fairport Convention in their full resplendent glory on this disc.

3.0 out of 5 stars This live album is mostly for long-time Fairport enthusiasts 26 Mar 2002
By woburnmusicfan - Published on
Format:Audio CD
This album has come out in a few different versions. I have the one previous to this; two additional songs have been added since then. The album captures the "Full House" lineup--the hardest-rocking of the many Fairport lineups--during a 1970 stand at the Troubador in Los Angeles. There are some good moments, but if you're looking for a live Fairport album, "Encore, Encore" and "The Cropredy Box" are far superior. The take on "Staines Morris" is a highlight. There is something here to enjoy for long-time Fairport fans, but for someone new to Fairport, this isn't a great place to start--go with "What We Did on Our Holidays" or "Full House" instead.
(1=poor 2=mediocre 3=pretty good 4=very good 5=phenomenal)
