Rising for the Moon was the last album to feature Sandy Denny. But it is also the album that saw her return to the group after a few years as solo artist and her venture with her husband Trevor Lucas and Jerry Donahue from Fotheringay. Together with Dave Pegg, Dave Mattacks and Dave Swarbrick Rising for the moon was produced after months of coming together as a group between the previous fairport album Rosie and the live performance on disc two and the album Rising for the Moon on disc one.
The album does not feature any traditional material and that adds to the uniqueness of the album. The album is more pop influenced and did enter the pop charts. There are some great songs on this album and it's a shame it did not get more credit than it did.
Mattacks left during the recording and was replaced by Bruce Rowland and later Denny, Lucas and Donahue left the group making this recording the only album to have this line up of performers.
The previous re issue re mastered included three bonus tracks Tears, (the b side of single White Dress) Rising for the moon, Stranger to himself and Once more chance
( the original Sandy Denny demos)
Here on this expanded edition we lose those tracks (so worth hanging on to the previous edition if you have it)
But we get a live version of White Dress from a TV appearance, An alternative version of Dawn a studio demo of what is true? A demo version of After Halloween and a home demo version of The King and Queen of England. All of these are great versions and worth listening to. These make up disc one.
Disc two contains tracks recorded live at the LA troubadour during the previous year and includes Sandy in the line up. This is actually a very good set of tracks and goes well with the original album because of the line up that forms the synthesis of the album Rising for the Moon. It is great to get this live set on CD with such good quality at last. This is not the same Live at the Troubadour as the House Full recording. Here on this live performance its interesting to hear Sandy talking between songs and talking about her new album Sandy Sandy and then performing songs from it.
This disc makes it worth having this album again if you have the previous edition.
The live recording is pretty good sound wise and the performance is just fabulous.
It is a great live set and everyone is on top form. It really is a great CD and I highly recommend it.
The playing is fantastic, with Swarb on top form and Donahue and Lucas providing some excellent, blistering guitar work. Maybe due to the diverse nature of the tracks, this album still sounds timeless and fresh, and hasn't really dated much.
This new reissue comes with a live CD recorded in the US and shows the band on top form - the Lucas/Donahue lineup is often forgotten, but his show just how good they were. I hope to see a similar reissue for Nine!
The album sounds completely different to other Fairport classics such as Unhalfbricking, Liege and Lief, Full House etc etc but after listening to it non stop for days now feel it to be every bit as good in its own way..The Sandy Denny songs are among her very best - Rising for the Moon, Stranger to himself, After Halloween, One More Chance - and her vocals on the Swarbrick penned 'White Dress' are truly sublime and prove that she was still at the top of her game just three years before her tragic passing. Unlike most people it seems, I don't have a problem with the songs and vocals of Trevor Lucas. I find his material very enjoyable and think
his songs blend well with his wife's. Sandy's backing vocals are a perfect counter-foil to Trevor's baritone.
The 1975 Fairport Convention lineup for 'Rising for the Moon' was Sandy Denny (vocals, piano, guitar), Trevor Lucas (vocals, guitar, harmonica), Dave Swarbrick (violin, vocals, guitar, mandolin, dulcimer) , Dave Pegg (bass, guitar, backing vocals), Jerry Donahue (electric/acoustic/slide guitars), Dave Mattacks/Bruce Rowland (drums/percussion). Unfortunately the album wasn't the roaring success that the band hoped for and due mainly to this the band would split up shortly after - though Fairport Convention of course lived on(and still does - with Dave Pegg still playing wonderful bass).
