Fairport Convention - Moat On The Ledge: Live at Broughton Castle (Mega Blowout Sale)

SKU 23-EAGCD 349
This is a recording of one of the greatest line-ups of this great band, recorded live, nearly a decade after they had last played together, and the concert that started their annual Cropedy Festival event.
Performing here are Dave Swarbrick, Richard Thompson, Simon Nicol, Dave Pegg, Dave Mattacks, Bruce Rowland with guest appearances by Judy Dyble & Ralph McTell!

"This is really a great find. The Full House lineup reunites, plus Rowlands (presumably on additional percussion~ Mattacks is on full power himself) in 1981.
Amazing that these exact guys hadn't played together in ten years, and they haven't missed a beat; impossibly tight for a one-off performance. They're as intense on Poor Will & the Jolly Hangman & Matty Groves as they were on House Full from '70. Thompson & Swarbrick have some fierce duets on the jigs (Brilliancy Melody/Cherokee Shuffle). Country Pie is fun, too, and it smokes musically.
On top of all this, as another even rarer bonus, Judy Dyble (re)joins the band to sing "Both Sides Now," Fairport's very first single from 1967 (and, you guessed it, her voice sounds like a dove). The real deal here, these guys are just great, I guess."
