Fairport Convention - Heyday: Heyday: BBC Sessions 1968-1969 CD (expanded)

SKU 15-ISLU586542.2
A remastered edition of the original album which includes 8 additional tracks (total: 20 tracks).
This is by the original line up of Fairport (Richard Thompson, Sandy Denny, Ian Matthews, Ashley Hutchings, Simon Nicol Martin Lamble + Ric Grech (violin on 2 tracks) and Dave Swarbrick & Dave Mattacks (violin/drums on 2 tracks).
Recorded on John Peel's Top Gear in 1968/69, this is the band at their most psychedelic, sounding like a mutant folky take on 1967/68 era West Coast US psych bands like the early Jefferson Airplane.
Taken from the master tapes, the sound is really good for the time period, & this is a fine set.
