Sealed 3 CD Set

Moat On The Ledge + From Cropredy To Portmeirion + XXXV Box set

If the early classics like Unhalfbricking and Liege and Lierf deserve 5 stars, as they surely do, then the latter day Fairport works cannot rate more than 4. Nevertheless fans will enjoy this oddly assorted bargain price package of 3 albums from different Fairport line-ups spanning 2 decades of the band's history. The first album documents a 1981 reunion of the Full House line-up, joined by transitory drummer Bruce Rowland and on one song, original vocalist Judy Dyble. This was more or less the prototype for the annual Cropredy reunions which continue to this day. Amazon has mistakenly given the track listing of a different album here - the correct listing, spanning everything from a lively Matty Groves to some rollicking Jerry Lee Lewis, is:
1. Walk Awhile
2. Country Pie
3. Rosie
4. Matty Groves
5. Both Sides Now
6. Poor Will & the Jolly Hangman
7. The Brilliancy Medley/The Cherokee Shuffle
8. Woman or a Man
9. High School Confidential
One black mark - whose idea was it to make the sleeve notes unreadable orange on orange in tiny print? The 12-page booklet is OK for the other 2 albums, but this lets it down.

The second album features another live gig from 1990, with a mix of classics and less familiar numbers. Finally we have the 2002 studio celebration of Fairport's 35th anniversary, featuring some fiery fiddle interplay between Ric Sanders and Chris Leslie. Apart from the irritating novelty number The Happy Man, the repertoire is a good mix of new songs with some favourite oldies revisited. Overall, a good package for dedicated Faiport followers, though newcomers should probably not start here.
