Of a time and place long ago, but enjoyable nonetheless,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 4 Play [2CD] (Audio CD)
The Fairport Convention of today has evolved and changed somewhat, both in personnel and sound, since these recordings were made.
With Swarb as a lead singer in those days, his remastering of these tracks is as masterly as his violin playing has always been.
The music is of an era long past, but the sound is crisp and the liveliness and joy of that band in those days is there for all to hear.
For completists and newcomers alike, this will enliven any leaden day of the summer of 2012.
Swarb will be appearing at Fairport's Cropredy Convention, August 2012, together with Fairport and many ex-Fairport personnel to help celebrate their 45th anniversary. More power to him and to them.

Sounds like a good album from your review, so why only 3 stars?

As I said, it is redolent of a time and place long ago and as such isn't necessarily up to 4 or 5 stars today. 3 stars aren't bad.
