• fairport convention The Cropredy Box Old Boys XVI (3 CD set, £14.50)

    Recorded in 1997 during Fairport's thirtieth anniversary concerts at the Cropredy Festival), it features all the surviving members of the band (with the exception of Ian Matthews) and presents them as individual line-ups. Every Fairport is represented, whether your own personal dream team is the dual-fiddle powerhouse featuring Ric Sanders and Chris Leslie or the original band with Ashley Hutchings and Richard Thompson. The version of "Sloth" on the second disc, features the original Full House line-up, and is preceded by a very rare performance by The GPs, a Fairport off-shoot featuring Ralph McTell. Fairport are celebrating their 50th Anniversary and here with this release we can capture one of their finest Cropredy Festivals ever. It was twenty years ago today...
