Fairport Convention - From Cropredy To Portmeirion
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 22/02/2008 15:07:17
Blimey - I reckon that the title for this album should have been lifted from the latest Albion live CD. Because "Dangerously live and seriously rocking" is what this recording is! Taken from the band's 1990 tour (at that time with a line-up consisting Pegg, Nicol, Sanders, Allcock and Mattacks) I never thought I'd find an album to surpass Fairport Live Convention but, here it is in all it's glory. Simon's vocals are stunning, as are the lead guitar workouts courtesy of Maartin. For my money, and it's common knowledge that this was my favourite line-up of the band second only to the 9 line-up. Dynamic and sharp as a knife, they were truly in their element. Majestic songs such as Ralph McTell's 'Red & Gold' were given just the right amount of pomp whilst Ric's beautiful 'Portmerion' is just that. On a less positive note but worth (I feel) pointing out is that a CD of this quality really should have been afforded a better sleeve. A bit twee to say the least. 10 out of 10 for the record though!
