  • Fairport Find

    Found a nice LP today for 40p - Fairport Convention's "What We Did On Our Holidays" on pink Island... sounds like a nice psych-folk LP, enjoying it even more than their first LP.

    Anyone else into this or am I on my own amongst vultures?

    fantastic LP, mate - you can't go wrong with the first five fairports!
    We know when a mate buys it for you too.

      Was a big hit with me back inthe mid-80's still love it. I;ve never seen a non-trashed copy other than the one I taped from a mate back then.
      Enthusiastic vagueness passes for scholarship in the twilight world of the disc-jockey.

        Yes, I've not seen one before. This one's not mint, but it's not trashed thankfully. It's meant to be quite hard to turn up I think. I love the sleeve, too. First thing I've found this year, just about!

          Thanks John, I'll make a note of the first five. Only 3 to go.

            Nice find! Worth having for 'Fotheringay' and 'Meet On The Ledge' alone, but I love the whole LP. 'Mr Lacey' has a special place in my heart as I attended an installation of Bruce Lacey's machines at the old Midland Group arts Centre in Notts many many years ago and saw him wandering about among them, playing on his saxophone...a memorable sight! I've got the first 4 Fairports (up to 'Leige & Leif'), but what's the fifth? Is that 'Babbacombe Lee'? If so, must pick that up next time I see one at a reasonable price...

              'Full House'. No female vocals, but the first appearance of 'Sloth', some great Richard Thompson guitar, and a set of extremely dark sleevenotes.

                Cheers, I'll keep an eye open for that one then...

                  I have the first five LP's (split between vinyl and CD copies) but I only really like the first LP. Still need a vinyl copy of that one but as you know it don't come cheap.

                  Did get the Sandy Denny LP from 1972 for £1 yesterday. Quite listenable throughout (brass arrangements by Allen Toussaint) but probably too folky for most folks.

                    There's a U.S. pressing which isn't nearly as expensive...

                      I got the Incredible String Band's first LP in a charity shop last weekend, but never got round to listening to it and then left it round my girlfriend's gaff. Is it any good?

                        I was quite lucky too, as it was this issue with the old E J Day sleeve...

                          I got a copy of the ISB's 'The Hangman's Lovely Daughter' LP ages ago (dunno if that's their first one?), and to be honest it didn't do much for me. Maybe it's time for a reappraisal, though..........?
