This was the first live album released by Fairport and dates from the period between the release of "Nine" and "Rising for the Moon" when Sandy Denny was performing with the band again but before she formally rejoined them. There is so much archive live and back-catalogue material available from Fairport these days that my first reaction to this remastered reissue was to note it, but not to rush ahead and buy it. Eventually I took the plunge and was very pleasantly surprised by what I heard - this is a classic set that benefits from the remastering treatment.

The original 1974 album contained nine tracks, recorded at three venues - the Rainbow Theatre (London), Fairfield Hall (Croydon) and the Sydney Opera House, although it is not revealed which tracks originate where. "Matty Groves", the opener, has been a fixture in the band's live set for decades and there are many recorded performances available, some rather hackneyed and uninspiring. This is taken by Sandy Denny at a slow pace (although it speeds up for the instrumental outro) which makes it a refreshing change - quite different from other recorded versions that I can recall. "Rosie" is another song that is available elsewhere in several versions. This is a slow-paced performance, sung beautifully by Swarb with beautiful guitar ornamentation by Jerry Donahue. "Fiddlestix" is a set of traditional tunes with Swarb virtuosity to the fore; it was not previously available in recorded form. "John the Gun" was a track on Sandy's recent solo album "North Star Grassman and the Raven" and here is given a funky Fairport treatment, as is the next track "Something You Got" - another track not previously recorded by the band.

This album, has some weak spots but also some great moments. Most goosebumps courtesy of Sandy Denny's magical voice, also Dave Swarbrick's much missed fiddle - I have always had a soft spot for the menacing sounding version of Matty Groves that opens this album. The first Fairport album I ever heard and a went on to buy a fair old few, so it must have made a good impression.

Fairport were always a very good group live and the CD capture the best line up (including Sandy Denny) when they were at the very top.I bought this as a LP in the seventies and wore it out now it is available on CD and remastered to give a clear authentic reproduction it is certainly a a must for all Fairport fans and it is the best live performance of all the many live Fairport CD.
