Weekend Mix/Sandy And Richard
Blah, Blah, Blah. I recently acquired "Come All Ye, The First Ten Years", a new 7 disc box by Fairport Convention.
I've been a fan since the early '70's, so I downloaded largely out of duty, figuring I already have everything, but this compilation is heavy on bonus material, and much of it rivals the official releases.
The band is still active, with Simon Nicol at the head, but I'm mainly interested in the classic late '60's early '70's lineup that included Sandy Denny, Richard Thompson, Dave Swarbrick, Simon Nicol, Ashley Hutchings, and Dave Mattacks, as found on "Leige And Leif" (1969).
This Weekend Mix largely avoids the "hits" in favor of what makes this box set essential.
