Fairport Convention Live at the L.A. Troubadour begat House Full: Live at the L.A. Troubadour which in begat Full House: Live at the L.A. Troubadour 2, which is basically a combination of the first two albums. Having said that and no matter which way you look at it  this is one hell of a live session from this Fairport line up. It's raw and undiluted, the band at its very best and most certainly an album worth hunting down, putting on your turntable or in your CD player, and then cranking up the volume....and dance till you drop...then do it all over again.

Track 1 is mistakedly shown on the LP/Sleeve as Toss the Feathers, it is actually the Lark in The Morning medley

Track 3 is listed just as "Bonnie Kate" but is in fact that tune followed by the three tunes that made up the "Sir B. McKenzies" single B-Side played in a different order.

Track 4 is actually an outtake from the Full House sessions with new vocals by Richard & Linda Thompson overdubbed in March 1975.
