I honestly have very little to add to the previous reviews except to echo their sentiments. This is a very strong late 60s album , very much infuenced by Jefferson Airplane and the Byrds and with only a hint of the quintisentially English sound to come. Having said that if you adjust your expectations there is much to enjoy with this album , not least of which are the vocals of Judy which have been unfairly overshadowed by Sandy Denny who followed her into the band.Both are excellent singers and this is a fine album.

Not what I expected - this is not the folk of later efforts. Great album, sounds like a piece of West Coast music. Great opening song by Emit Rhodes and some blistering guitar from the genius that is Richard Thompson. Could be the QMS, Grateful Dead or Iron Butterfly (almost). Interesting liner notes from the Simon Nicol. I must get the rest of the FC stuff!

This album was made before Sandy Denny took over as lead singer. Listeners familiar with the U.S. West Coast music of the mid 60s will recognise the influences on this first release. Comparisons with the later Fairport are pointless, and this album has it's own merits not least some excellent guitar work from Richard Thompson.

Five stars. Don't have to add anything to that, right?
