Fairport Convention laid a path for countless future bands, bringing traditional English folk to the rock era—and these are the 1968–78 recordings with which they did it. Even those who already revere Richard Thompson, Sandy Denny and their mates will find much to treasure, as 55 of these 121 tracks are previously unreleased. Alongside key LPs cuts and B-sides, you’ll hear TV performances and BBC radio sessions that capture watershed moments in the evolution of UK folk-rock. This set arrives as we mark the 50th anniversary of the first live Fairport Convention performance, which saw them going electric with Celtic myths and music (while the Byrds were amping up Dylan songs and traditionals across the pond). You’ll hear the best from their Polydor, Island and Vertigo LPs and a whole lot more: Decameron, One Sure Thing, Fotheringay, Meet on the Ledge, Genesis Hall, Dear Landlord, Lord Marlborough, Breakfast in Mayfair, Reynardine, Farewell to a Poor Man’s Son, The Plainsman, Bring ’Em Down, Stranger to Himself, Reynard the Fox, John Peel session recordings of I Don’t Know Where I Stand, Tam Lin, John the Gun, You Never Wanted Me, Percy’s Song, and more including concerts at the L.A. Troubadour (’74) and at Fairfield Hall (’73, unreleased)!
