I have always regarded 'Nine' as being among the best Fairport albums, representing the brief flowering of the post Nicol/Thompson band before the return of Sandy Denny changed the musical direction again. The previous album 'Rosie' was something of a stopgap but had marked the arrival of Trevor Lucas and Jerry Donahue, both former members of Sandy's band Fotheringay, and on 'Nine' they make major contributions. Lucas's rich and resonant voice and Donahue's fluent lead guitar were completely different from their predecessors, Sandy Denny and Richard Thompson, but they gave a distinctive tone to a revitalised and cohesive musical unit built on the sure foundation of the three Daves. Dave Swarbrick's playing is superb throughout, and his vocals are pretty good too, while Dave Mattacks and Dave Pegg are on top form.
This album has been out on CD for many years, so what do the remaster and repackaging give us? Well the sound is certainly excellent, although I can't honestly say that I can pinpoint how and where the remastering has changed things. There are four bonus tracks. The Australian single release of "Fiddlestix" is here, complete with strings and banjo, and there are three 1973 live recordings made in London. Of these the most interesting is Bob Dylan's "George Jackson" of which, to my knowledge, no other Fairport recording has ever been released. The 'enhanced packaging' consists of a card slip-case and an insert booklet. The latter contains track details, photos, notes by Jerry Donahue and lyrics for the vocal tracks on the original album.
It is with the last of these that my criticisms lie because I would expect the lyrics provided to be the correct, definitive, versions - which, alas, they are not.

There have been many reviews of this album that have dismissed it as unworthy. I have never understood them. This has always been one of my favourite albums from the opening bounce of Hexhamshire lass to the rocking workout that is Possibly Parsons Green. There are some wonderful deep full crunchy guitar parts, particularly in Polly and Bring 'Em Down, some great inventive arrangements (Bring 'Em Down again, and the gorgeous To Althea From Prison, Swarb's best ever vocal), and some brilliant guitar work from Jerry Donahue.
The remaster has added some live tracks and a rare instrumental but there are no great changes to the sound, perhaps a little sharper in the detail - but unlike some remastering, at least it hasn't spoiled it!
My advice? Forgot the critics. Listen to this and make your own mind up. You may be surprised just how much you enjoy it.

In this, the ninth album from `70's folk heroes Fairport Convention, Swarb and the lads serve up yet another helping of rollicking tunes. This is a record jam packed with foot taping, hummable tunes that get stuck in your head for ages after listening. Special highlights for me are the opener `Hexamshire Lass' and the classic `Pleasure and Pain'. This might not quite be the equal of the glory days of `Liege and Leaf' or `Full House', but the lads are all expert musicians (especially Dave Swarbrick on violin) and obviously enjoy working together. These two factors are essential to making a good record, and that is what has resulted here.

This reissue is particularly good. The sound is nicely remastered and restored. There are comprehensive liner notes and several bonus tracks, which add to the album. These include `Devil in the Kitchen', a single of the time and a fantastic tune. The rest are from a contemporary live recording.

An excellent release of an excellent album. Of definite interest to all folk rock fans and ex (or even still going) hippies...

We still have the vinyl version of "Nine", and the CD version is a good replica of an album which was never a top seller but is filled with gems all the same. Dave Swarbrick does some sterling work with his vocal talents as well as his fiddling, and together the band creates a masterful set that will be a delight to anyone who hasn't yet discovered it.
