Fairport Convention - Liege & Leaf

This is the last album from Fairport before their reshuffle in personnel and it seems to be a showcase for Sandy Denny, whose voice dominates every number. As a group they seem to have come a long way backwards since their first album. The exciting electric sound of those days has been replaced with the most traditional of traditional folk, which doesn’t make for too much animation– they’ve over-simplified. It’s an essential recording. The 2002 CD reissue adds a previously unreleased version of "Sir Patrick Spens" with Sandy Denny on lead vocals.
