Fairport Convention - Live Convention CD (expanded)

SKU 15-Universal 8279687
The problematic sounding first live Fairport Convention album - their only with Sandy released during her lifetime - has been greatly improved on this redone version.

"The presence of Sandy Denny raises expectations for the group's first released live album. Recorded on the band's 1973 world tour, it features songs such as "Matty Groves" and "Sloth," as well as the Swarbrick instrumental "Fiddlestix," their then current single "Rosie," and a nod to the group's origins as interpreters of American rock & roll and folk-rock, in the form of Dylan's "Down in the Flood" and Chris Kenner's "Something You Got." Denny's solo abilities are showcased on "John the Gun."...As the only live document of Denny with the band, however, this record is vital to Fairport completists."-AllMusic
