If you are a Fairporter who has a full collection of their albums, don't buy this! The packaging doesn't make it clear the this is actually a re-issue of two earlier albums, namely "Red and Gold" and "Five Seasons". If you haven't already got these albums, then this issue is a good introduction to the "middle years" of Fairport Convention.

This is far from the worst produced collection of albums I've ever heard... but it's still pretty damned bad.

EXCELLENT songs. Incredible musicianship... Producer should be JAILED.

What's with the ridiculous amount of reverb? Where's the bass? Is this an all "mid" collection of albums?

Both The Four Seasons and (much worse)Red and Gold sound like complete and utter garbage... Which is sad because I'm sure they must kill live.

Maybe more should have been done to try and capture that live feel.

This is just over-produced trash. Only reason it gets two stars instead of one is because of the strength of the songs and the musicians.

This two album set is made up of two previoulsy released albums "The Five Seasons" and "Red And Gold". The pick of the tracks were Gold and Caught A Whisper from "The Five Seasons" and Set Me Up, Red And Gold, Dark Eyed Molly, The Rose Hip, Summer Before The War and Bob Dylan's Close The Door Richard from "Red And Gold". Worth it's weight in gold even though carrying some not so good tracks.

Think the previous review is a bit unfair - if you click on the cd sleeves you see it gives the original album names. So all in all a bargain price to pay for 2 stonking albums which are becoming hard to acquire individually.
