"You Never Wanted Me" by Fairport Convention in 1968 is so beautiful with a killer performance by Sandy Denny that it's worth the price of the CD by itself, and the Sandy Denny-sung version of "Sir Patrick Spens" a song more familiar in the version off the post-Denny Full House album from 1969 will be a must-own for any Fairport fan.

Some of the sound quality is uneven, but overall this is practically a gift from heaven for any lover of good English folk music, whether they are fans of Hutchings or not.
