This compilation of BBC sessions is actually a very good portrait of the original Fairport. It mixes covers and originals and shows their unique synthesis of American and British folk and country. The original lineup only made two albums so any extra music is valuable. Few bands of the time valued subtlety over flash like the Convention. They really were a British version of THe Band. The newer Best of the BBC collection is also good.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
