Product Description

Product Description

Who knows was originally recorded in 1975 but the mystery was in the exact where and when was this show. The line up of Dave Swarbrick, Dave Pegg, Sandy Denny, Bruce Rowland Jerry Donahue and Trevor Lucas were all in top form. But the labelling of the tape box and certain comments from the stage make it very difficult to tie down the exact time and place of the recording. Thus, "Who knows?"

About the Artist

Fairport Convention were formed in 2968 and were the seminal Folk Rock act of all time. Their sound was forged through constant recording and playing live over many years. With the seminal release of Liege and leaf in 1972 the band secured their place in the halls of fame. The line up constantly changed over the years, but the line up on "Who knows?" of Sandy Denny, Trevor Lucas, Jerry Donahue, Dave Pegg, Bruce Rowland and Dave Swarbrick is one of the strongest.

Well when I saw this was a recording of the concert at Brunel University I had to have it. Why? Because I was there and had a great time.
The recording is not the greatest, balance leaves something to be desired and High Fidelity it isn't. But it is a good atmospheric live recording and one of the last recordings of Sandy before her tragic early death. So worth it for that alone.

Imagine, if you can, being hit in the face with what amounts to almost a gallon of YES!!! That is what it is like listening to 'Who Knows'. I remember the first time I heard this album. I was at a bbq in Devon (it was also the first time I'd been to Devon so I was on a winner anyway!) and Angela (the hostess (well used to be 'host' but that's another review!) said she had this album that she'd like us all to listen to. Well, I was blown away (not literally, although there was quite a breeze that afternoon!). I must admit I missed the last couple of tracks (breezers do that to you!) but what I heard was super. Buy this, if only for your Devon based bbq's, it's the biz!!!

On the Boards 1975 18 Jun 2005
By Philip S. Wolf - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
"Who Knows" is a welcome addition to all the other live Convention recordings out there at this point. Dave Pegg has found a tape in the Archives that is believed to be from 31 October 1975 at Uxbridge Brunel University, but he is not quite sure of the date or the location hence the title of the CD "Who Knows".

This is the " Rising For The Moon" line-up featuring Sandy Denny & Dave Swarbrick both on board. At this point this version of Fairport had been touring for 18 months. Unlike "Live Convention" or "Before The Moon" which are both from 1974 This sounds much more like a BAND and not Swarb's Fairport with Sandy sitting-in.

This concert is more about the songs and not the Jamming Cosmic Folk Fiddle of Swarb. That said it is Sandy"s Band and an Extra Special one that will never be seen on stage again. The Songs: "Stranger To Himself", "Rising For The Moon" and "Sloth" rate as the best live versions yet as this is a TIGHT band. This release is much, much better than "Live Convention" recorded 18 months earlier where the band couldn't quite jell together at that point. This recording is a good Book-end with "Before The Moon" which includes some wonderful Cosmic Expeditions from Swarb's Fiddle, but that recording can't match this one for it's AMAZING SOUND QUALITY! This is the best sounding release from the Mid-Seventies yet.

The best news to relay here is that this Vol. One of a series of Live Fairport releases and next up is Fairport Acoustic Convention down-under with Dave Swarbrick Guesting from 1996.

Thank you, Dave & Chris Pegg and Talking Elephant Records for bringing this one out. FOUR STARS!

Totally puzzled -- great sound or awful sound? 18 Nov 2010
By ALC - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I love Fairport Convention, and I haven't listened to this CD. I'm writing this review because I rely on other people's reviews, and in this case I'm totally puzzled: how can one reviewer talk about the awful sound quality and the other talk about the wonderful sound quality?

Not a Sound Choice 7 Nov 2007
By Jeanne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
There is no doubt that this album was recorded during the height of Fairport Convention's populartity. The selections on this album are the signature songs. So what's the problem? In one word, it is the sound. This recording is like listening to someone holding up a cell phone at a concert. I get the impression that something wonderful is going on, but the quality of the recording is literally unlistenable. I tried playing it loud; I tried playing it soft. It was so garbled and tinny that listening was an excercise in frustration.

If you want to delve into the Fairport Convention, this is not the recording for you. They call it the Woodworm Archives. Unfortunately, it sounds as bad as the label.
