Journeyman's Grace

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Dave Thompson
Titled for one of Fairport's best loved classics, but recorded somewhat more recently than that, Journeyman's Grace is, in fact, a perfectly serviceable double-disc snapshot of a 2003 concert in Canterbury, England. The Nicol/Pegg/Sanders/Leslie/Conway lineup sparkles, and the pace is frequently relentless. It's hard indeed to believe this band was moving in on its 40th anniversary at the time, and the energies are matched only by the humor, and the usual bag of surprising selections.

Titled for one of Fairport's best loved classics, but recorded somewhat more recently than that, Journeyman's Grace is, in fact, a perfectly serviceable double-disc snapshot of a 2003 concert in Canterbury, England. The Nicol/Pegg/Sanders/Leslie/Conway lineup sparkles, and the pace is frequently relentless. It's hard indeed to believe this band was moving in on its 40th anniversary at the time, and the energies are matched only by the humor, and the usual bag of surprising selections.

The band's own history is retold through such classics as a sprightly "Meet on the Ledge," a driving "Walk Awhile" and a triumphant "Rosie," and in a world which really may have seen enough Fairport live albums to last most of you a lifetime, this is one of the ones that ensures that you'll keep listening for more. On their night, there's nothing like them. And this was one such night.
