It All Came Round Again


This double album sort of brings to a close the first stage in Fairport Convention's long and illustrious career, a sort of summing up. At the time though, that this album  appeared, it seemed that Fairport were no more, fortunately we were all very very wrong.
Tracks 1-10 are from the albums What We Did on Our Holidays,
Unhalfbricking and Liege and Lief, on which Sandy Denny appears, and are all studio versions which had previously been released. The rest of the album is taken from Full House, Angel Delight and Babbacombe Lee , with one instrumental track, The Hen's March Through The Midden/The Four Poster Bed, that would appear later, on Rosie

Crazy Man Michael and the Medley appear on the double LP  but not on the later CD. version of this album, also the CD version is a single disc only.
