Title: Fairport-related Youtube Clips
Post by: Waterloo Wonderer on September 07, 2006, 12:06:58 PM
Dearest Moderators

Should we create a distinct forum for Youtube clips as they are usually fasinating one way or another.

Or has this been suggested before and was the result anarchy?

One thread on each main board should do it I reckon - along with a more general one for non-Talkawhile artists etc within !Active

Thanks for this Neil.

I love Banks Of The Sweet Primroses.

Seeing Fairport WITH Dave Pegg is a treat for me. He was not with them when they came to Pa. in the USA

Maybe slightly tangential but bear with me...

As we all know, one of Swarb's musical partners is Alistair Hulett.  In the late 80s / early 90s, Ally was a member of Sydney-based folk-rock band Roaring Jack.  They only ever did one video, for the song "Framed" - and it's now on YouTube!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xmv-1DEDkB8

I saw the band many times - very sweaty, energetic and political.  This video gives a pretty fair idea, especially if you turn the speakers up!

A Fairport related film that I think is worth watching on You Tube is from XTC who are performing 'Books are Burning' on the BBC's arts programme, 'The Late Show', it features the fabulous and majestic DM upon the drum throne.

I shall go in search of DM performing with Kaja on TV's 3-2-1 show now!

Just to gauge demand, who wants a copy ?  It is a fantastic film.  E-mail me with FC in the subject if you do...

Once I've got the whole gig transferred to DVD (soon I hope), depending on demand I'll see what I can do (i.e. if it's just a few, no problem, if lots of you want one I'll need something toward media and P&P), assuming FC don't have a problem with that (I know Simon wanted a copy).

Ooooh I love this one...haven't seen it in years.  I particularly like the all too brief shot of Simon playing while, er, asleep... and a suspiciously long 'cigarette' being puffed on by Swarb at one point...

That's on a video or DVD somewhere .. can't remember which one offhand, but I know I've got it!

The B&W shots were from a warm up rehearsal, no audience in the Mill.

And yes, it was the Monday warm-up rehearsal in The Mill that same year. I thought it clever that the B&W bits were rehearsal, the colour bts Cropredy.

This is part of the film "Glastonbury 71" (I think), which was released some years ago. Bl---dy  br----nt film; I had it on video, lent it to someone and it was then lost. Disaster! But it is an excellent document, not just of some great music, but also as a piece of social history. Some fascinating crowd scenes which give a real flavour of those heady, and long gone now, times.

The film was called Glastonbury Fayre.

I bought a new copy of the video a couple of years ago when it was re-released so I imagine its still available somewhere, or there is a DVD of it going on e-bay now at (LINK REMOVED - SEE BELOW)

I know a Finnish pianist, pressed into service as my astonished accompanist, but more of a jazz man, I'd say.  Don't know if he knits.

I'm gamely trying to think of a segue to YouTube, but no dice.

Yeah, but not sure I like the little drum thing DM did at the beginning. I like DM's accompaniment drumming very much, but he can't solo on his own (ie, not in a song, before someone says 'What about Horse's Brawl) at all. But that's for elsewhere. Great clip and here's the URL

http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=aNI5lvQFmtc

No but in other things like Matty Groves off 'From Cropredy to Portmeirion' the solo's not great. But I do agree, top drummer, one of the best, just not a soloing.

A little while ago, Ric Sanders and Chris Leslie played as a duo in the Holywell Music Rooms in Oxford. It was a warm-up concert for the Oxford Folk Festival.

I filmed a handful of bits and pieces at that concert. It's been ages but I've finally got round to sorting the film out and putting it up on YouTube.

To start, here are links to My Love is in America (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_hg5rLIlNXk) and The Flow (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NJ68kjAZFYE). (Apologies for the missing verse in 'America'. I had a camera glitch which affected a chunk of the recording. I've edited that out but it means the song is incomplete.)

There should be 2 or 3 more along in a moment, including an improvised jam between all the artists who appeared that night which I guess will be a rather rare recording.

Cheers

Nick

Yes, I have this on video somewhere, the 6:55 Special. It's been ages since I saw it but I have to dig it out again after seeing this. Later on, Martin Carthy also joins in for Meet On The Ledge (sings a verse, too), and does a solo song, possibly Sovay (like I said it's been ages so I am not wholly sure). Despite being clearly about a band which had a long history but basically at this time WAS history, Simon still looks as if he just left high school!
The band also does Walk Awhile - I think they kick off the programme with it - with a verse only ever done then, if memory serves it goes "on the 13th of August, and the 14th too/We will be at Cropredy/Just to play for yououououo". They've since stuck with the original lines, which is a good idea.
It would be cool if someone somewhere posts the 1977 BBC Scotland feature, I think it was simply called In Concert, which has the Bonny Bunch line up for about half an hour in fab quality. I definetely had it, and copied it for some people (it must be out there somewhere), and can't find it back for the life of me - I searched high and low but this tape is missing - which is a drag because that was excellent quality stuff and a great performance to boot. Hopefully on Youtube someday ...

Well, actually thanks to Chris B, who first spotted it (reply #157). Whatever - it's good to see it again. So rare to see Anne Briggs on camera, and even rarer to hear her talk with such warmth about Sandy. Makes you realise what a cracker a Sandy documentary could be if Bob Harris manages to get it together.

On the contrary - they were good mates, albeit with divergent lifestyles (see Sandy's "The Pond and the Stream"). Sorry, Jules. I expressed myself badly. What I meant was that it's rare to hear her talking about her old friend, and her comments in this interview, about Sandy's "sense of song", show particular warmth.

It's interesting the way that the reporter describes her as 'The voice of Fairport Convention' considering she was only with them for a total or 3 or 4 years, out of 40. Just shows what a huge impact she had on the band.

She became a Seventies folk icon, but faded out in a haze of alcohol abuse. Now Sandy Denny, voice of Fairport Convention, is getting the recognition she deserves, writes Robert Webb

"She even rejoined Fairport Convention, for a half-hearted reunion set, Rising for the Moon."
That's a bit harsh too! There are one or two not particularly good songs on RFTM, but I'd hardly call "One More Chance" half-hearted. Interesting article, though - thanks for the link.

Hi Mr Baked Bean

Thank you very much for the link to that Edinburgh youtube clip. I am what Simon called this week, a Fairport virgin, as I have just been to my second and third Fairport shows. I was at Edinburgh when Chris sang this amazing song, and I thought "what the heck was that"? I came on here to find that everyone was talking about Reynardine, and I knew straight away. Then I found your post so I'm in heaven. Was working in London at the end of the week so took the opportunity to see them again in Croydon, wasn't disappointed. Now I know why my friends go to see FC every year.

Thanks again

Definitely right on the date, it's from the "In Real Time" video of Cropredy '87, which has also been shown several times on TV - I have an off-air recording from C4 from about 1989 somewhere.

Originally from the west side, now actually in northern Baltimore County.  And I believe the only thing I didn't post was a partial recording of Jools Holland.

Sort of on topic - In 1982 I produced a Richard and Linda Thompson concert in Baltimore, on their last tour.  I was instructed by the booking agent that I had to videotape the show and hand off the tape to the soundman.  I've never seen anything about it since, never even saw it myself.  Anyone know anything?  It would look like a black-and-white recording, because my band was the opening act and I have that tape.  (We couldn't afford very good lighting so the tape ended up looking that way.)

As Jude says elsewhere, YouTube now features our official promotional video,
edited from footage shot for the DVD. Our thanks to Mike Rowbottom and
Iconic for their help with this project.

The more people who see the YouTube clip, the better it will promote
our festival and the full DVD. So we hope you will help our PR effort
by visiting (and, perhaps, re-visiting) the clip:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JFLE2eeZB3k

The more visits it gets, the higher up the rankings it will go - that
directly benefits Fairport and Cropredy. So please have a look at the
clip and get all your family and friends to visit too.

Also, if you know any 'waverers' who might be thinking about going to
Cropredy, point them to the video!

The Beeb are doing their bit to help, this from the R2 F&A website  :D

"Fans of Fairport's Cropredy Convention, and those who haven't visited and wonder what it's like, may be interested to know that the band has put together a mini-documentary about its popular annual festival. The nine-minute video gives an authentic taste of the event, focusing on the colourful Cropredy scene along with a few music clips.

Filmed in the concert arena, campsites, backstage area and around the village, the footage captures the festival's buzz and friendly atmosphere as experienced by the festival-goers: last year's attendees may even spot themselves in the film! There are also interviews with Cropredy guests including Seth Lakeman, Jools Holland, Lulu, Mike Harding, Geoff Hughes and Frank Skinner.

You can watch the mini-documentary on YouTube and visit Fairport Convention's website for more information about Cropredy, which runs this year from August 7-9."

That makes sense as I thought he sold all his instruments a few years back when he and Chris split up.

Certainly he changed his main bass at about that time, mind you Peggy often does a sort of shoulder shuffle when playing as if he isn't entirely happy with the way the bass is set on his shoulders.

I think I am right in saying that Peggy has recently acquired a Stonebridge acoustic bass, which he played at his birthday bash. No idea what the original one in the clip was, though.

As for shuffling his shoulders, I should think after playing a bass for over 40 years, anyone would!

I just had another look at the Youtube clip and you are right - the one he had at Chesham was even bigger! ;D

To back up what Malcolm has posted, Peggy has said in the past that suffers with back pain due to many years of lugging heavy bass guitars around.  As a back pain suffer myself and just a little about loads on structures, I can't say that I am suprised.

I saw Dave Pegg & His Cocktail Cowboys live at the Half Moon in August 1983 - just a few days after Cropredy. And quite enjoyable it was, too. It was the first time I met Chris. We had a long and pleasant conversation over a chinese takeaway after the soundcheck that evening. Can't recall too much of the set list, but they did most of Peggy's soloalbum and I distinctly remember a medley of tunes I've never heard before or since.

I agree it is a odd version, not how i would expect CC to do that song at all. Still very good band, and always good to hear praise for Richard.

It's back up now, just got a chance to watch it.

For anyone that's interested:
Natasha summarises that it is the end of the first day of the festival, and that what higher can you sing or say than that everybody needs love?
Boris says that there are enough people there for an army, even two, but two armies of peace.
Natasha suggests that 'All You Need is love' become the anthem of the festival and everyone join in singing.

And if anyone wasn't moved to tears by that introduction they soon were by Patti Smith's rendition.
Yup, I think murdered is a fair assessment.

На здорове вам так же Jim!

Long ago I promised a colleague of my wife that I'd make a cassette of versions of Who Knows Where The Time Goes? for her husband, it being his favourite song

Never got round to it and no longer have any cassettes, but have just done the next best thing and trawled YouTube. No one beats Sandy, of course, and some were frankly too ghastly to reproduce but it was an interesting exercise.

 I have posted the results at http://salutlive.com in case anyone is interested

I didn't really mean it like that. It was just kinda annoying I suppose. Seemed to me like they weren't really appreciating that they were seeing Robert Plant, and just wanted to hear Matty. Anyways, doesn't really matter.

Yes, it’s pretty rough. In their biography of Ashley, Hinton and Wall spend a page talking about this session, which they say was recorded for Dutch radio. I can only assume they must have heard a much better tape than this. If it was radio, I suppose it’s too much to hope that the master survives..?

Yes, Reno Nevada is in full on the Iain Matthews VHS bio video Compass & Chart Vol 1, long out of print, of course. The Morning Glory track is new to me though, so I'd love to know the full set list for this Baton Rouge show. So far I know of these two, and of course Time Will Show The Wiser. Anything else?

And the REALLY annoying thing is that I'm sure these tracks are in the French TV archive in full colour somewhere, as there was a tiny bit, I think from Reno, in a Richard Thompson TV docu a couple of years back. I would love to see all these tracks in good quality full colour sometime.

And the REALLY annoying thing is that I'm sure these tracks are in the French TV archive in full colour somewhere, as there was a tiny bit, I think from Reno, in a Richard Thompson TV docu a couple of years back. I would love to see all these tracks in good quality full colour sometime.

That's it as far as Fairport tracks go.

I have a copy of the whole show and of course, I was there at the time ;D

There may be a possibility of colour....

OK, so here's the plan. While Jules distracts her contacts at TV Francais, Dept d'Archives, we mount a two pronged attack. First, blockade Calais for a few days. (Sauce for the gander etc.) Second, boycott President butter, all French wine over a tenner, and switch to Somerset brie. That'll learn 'em, and I confidently expect a brown paper envelope with the colour versions will turn up within a couple of weeks. Possibly.

I've popped some video clips from the Coal Aston gig on Youtube.

The Pride Of Kildare      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eu4AVHAq2M8
Seven Keys                 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RXbpYCyQk3Q
One Way Donkey Ride   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=182Kkl86WcM&feature=related

We got permission from the guys to film the gig, hope you like the results.
The sound quality is pretty good through the inboard camera microphone but the only, and by only I mean really unfortunate, snag is that due to the camera position Chris' face remains hidden behind the speaker through all the film. But you can see what he's up to and hear the results very clearly.




Just thought this worth putting in hear as well as it features Chris and Swarb!

Re the Breakfast In Mayfair song, I believe the BBC wiped the master video tape. Good old Beeb, plenty of Black & White Minstrel shows left so no worries eh?  

The programme predated VHS by at least five years - any off-air copy would have to be on a reel to reel tape or maybe U-Matic. Or even err, "wonderful" Philips half inch format.

Maybe somebody rescued a video tape from a BBC skip - stranger things have happened.

Maybe in my morning haze I am misreading something here but I don't know about any room mate but young Derek is the flat out nephew of Butch Trucks who, along with Jaimoe, still hold down the jobs they have had since the start with the Allman Brothers as their drummers. While I presumed the loss of Dickey Betts could not be good news ten years ago or so, last time I saw the Allmans a couple years ago they were firing every bit as well as they did at their alleged peak with Duane. But young Derek has been a member of the Allman Brothers for some years now, I first saw him at the age of 14 in Fitzgeralds roadhouse, Berwyn, Illinois.

Aha, that blogger got their info from a post I made on the Sandy Denny list  :)   and fair enough.

The clip certainly does exist and it's still mentioned on the official ABC site.  However, it's not commercially available from their library, as the FAQs state:

"Library Sales supplies the ABC's media collection to commercial operations and professional bodies only, including program makers, advertising agencies and broadcasters."

So unless they decide to put it on their YouTube channel http://au.youtube.com/user/EntertainmentOnABC - as a few GTK clips have been, though I think UK viewers were having trouble accessing those clips anyway - then I don't like the chances...

Before any other GoG ones... here's an audience video of FC doing All The Dance Numbers at Cropredy '95:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ANPtsCJqI8o

Not great quality but rare.  The song appeared on Peggy's 'Cocktail Cowboy' album.  It was written by Australian singer/songwriter Glenn Cardier who is still recording, and writing great songs, in a folk/blues/roots kind of style.  Lyrics range from twisted to cynical to touching.  See www.glenncardier.com; especially the videos page (and the story re the Expectatiions clip  :)  ).  He has a new DVD out soon too.

There's plenty of other stuff from this Cropredy video, of no better quality, but I wanted to show Glenn this one!

I might just mention another of the clips gone up from the 1979 BBC TV Albion Band special:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7q4hMR8mMNw

The Albions rehearsing Alright Jack, which wouldn't be recorded for another few years when half the band became Home Service.  Phil Pickett's on this clip too.

A BBC feature on Cropredy 1985:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JyCwGqifp5A

I can but quote the notes -

"Things I'd suggest ignoring - 1. the video quality, 2. the commentary (count the inanities and inaccuracies).

For the rest, there's various musical excerpts from a rare Fairport line-up with Simon Nicol, Dave Pegg, Richard Thompson, Jerry Donahue (singing!), Dave Swarbrick, Dave Mattacks (keyboards) and Bruce Rowland, plus some interesting interviews.

Particularly interesting as they make no mention of reforming the band permanently later the same year, without Swarb."

Two years ago after my first (and only - so far) Cropredy I uploaded to YouTube all the videos I made with my daughter's nice new widescreen camera.  YouTube at the time didn't have widescreen viewing so I had to mess with them prior to the upload so that they'd look okay.  Then a year or so later, YouTube went widescreen, and made all my videos look wrong.  So I've begun the process of re-uploading them.  They look like they should - YouTube takes larger files now too, so the video AND sound quality is better.  Here's what I've done so far:

Lego Matty Groves - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k_kZtcj14Rg

The six Leige and Lief lineup songs that I have:
Come All Ye - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cBK_H9ydUTQ
Matty Groves - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rNjKKZMKldM
The Deserter - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fhe4HDragR8
Lark Medley - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dzBqID3Ig7M
Tam Lin - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=61GBQ_twkhU
Crazy Man Michael - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4KUDduCFxUs

and four songs from the Woodford Halse warm-ups:
Walk a While - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uudlEw6Fb-0 (shouldn't there be a Chris While version of this called Walk a Chris While?  But I digress...)
Doctor of Physick - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-7-6QsIcoTM
Jenny's Chickens / Mason's Apron - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vEzRGI-Lpk0
Si Tu Dois Partir - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5BlLPeo-YMk

I'll post more eventually...

If you post a link to an external site, such as a video clip, news item or a set of photos, please tell us what the link is!

Please write something about the link - who, what, when, where, etc. It's not always possible for everyone to click and view every link that gets posted and sometimes some links aren't appropriate to follow at certain times (e.g. from work). A few comments always help when deciding what links to follow and what to save for another time.

Aye, it's a good one that....

Poor old Swarb looks like he must have an eye infection.  Or he's been up for 48 hours.  Can't think of any other explanation why his eyes look so puffy....   ::)

Pretty poor sound & vision on "Old Fashioned Waltz"; however, while listenong/watching, I spotted a link to a (sound only) Phil Lynott vocal on a Sandy tribute song. Intrigued, I gave it a listen - and while, IMO, it's no world-beater as a song, though perfectly pleasant, the acoustic guitar work reminded me somewhat of Fotheringay (the song). Which is no bad thing.

Raise you one for sheer knockout "wow" factor.

RT with EC, Allen Toussaint, Nick Lowe and Ray Lamontange, inter alia, doing "The Weight" with Levon Helm on drums. And RT does Rick Danko's "Crazy Chester" verse.

It's part of the house band from that show at that time (they called themselves The World's Most Dangerous Band): Paul Shaffer (keyboards, band leader, ex-Saturday Night Live, and he's in The Blues Brothers movie), Will Lee (bass), Anton Fig (Drums) and Sid McGinnis (guitar).  They've evolved into the CBS Orchestra, and are the backing band for all the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction events.

Thanks so much for pointing to these.  I saw the listing somewhere once about this show but have never been able to find it.   Sounds like Robert ("Robin") MacNeil narrating, from the old MacNeil Lehrer News Hour on PBS here in the States.

Ah, that makes slightly more sense of it all.  I did think the programmes seemed a little unfocused, what with all that druid stuff going on.  Not quite sure what point they were trying to make.

What surprised me was The Angel - nowhere near as bad as I had imagined.  In my mind's eye I saw dark and dingy rooms, brown lincrusta-covered walls, smoke stained ceilings and sinks piled high with dirty dishes.  Apart from an overgrown garden full of discarded vehicles (which the children must have loved!), the rooms seemed quite light and airy, if a little run-down - pretty much standard student accommodation at that time, I'd have thought.

It never got the funding past the initial show unfortunately.
Kevin did try to get a tour together and there was some interest but the arts council wouldn't back it.
Including LJE there were about twenty people involved all of whom were professionals.Without the money to underwrite it it wasn't feasible,which is a great shame because Kevin did a great job of writing it and Paul Smith did a fantastic job of recording it!
I know that Kevin is still interested in doing it again and the band would be up for it but it's a bit of a catch 22 not being able to tour it without financial assistance but at the same time trying to raise awareness to get that assistance.
Maybe one day! It was great fun to do.

In the mid-70s, English wrestler Brian Maxine recorded a country rock album "Ribbon Of Stainless Steel" backed by various members of Fairport. On this Cropredy 1982 video, he rejoins them for Six Days On The Road, a track from the LP - joined by Dave Swarbrick, Trevor Lucas, Dave Pegg, Jerry Donahue, Dave Mattacks, Bruce Rowland, Dan Ar Bras, Linda Thompson etc. It's nobody's finest musical moment, but it's historical.

Good question. According to Expletive-Delighted,

http://www.musikfolk.co.uk/expletive-delighted/index.html

Richard played on the album, so possibly on the session too, through the wonders of multi tracking. Although this source suggests it was Sandy.

Eastern Rain - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GTOejLE87T8

I'll Keep It With Mine - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CUtFXmS9FmA

The latter is my personal favourite of anything Fairport have ever done. That these two recordings are on just one side of an early LP remains an absolutely staggering achievement. Harmonies to die for. Thompson, still only just old enough to go into pub legally...

Post by: Nigel no longer of Lysander on October 07, 2010, 08:32:31 AM
It's all there on t'internet :-

Steeleye Span had agreed to appear in a special television show in which they would play alongside their only folk-rock rivals, Fairport Convention, on Ainsdale Beach, just north of Liverpool. As the performance was being given just for television, it had been arranged that a token crowd of about 200 should come along as the audience. Unfortunately a Liverpool newspaper got the story totally wrong and announced that there was to be a free festival.

The result was utter chao 5,000 people turned up.The two bands stayed around for a while to play for the crowds when the recording was over and then - as more and more people kept arriving - the man operating the generator brought proceedings to an abrupt halt by driving the generator van away. It was then that the gallant Ainsdale police, all three of them, arrived to tell of another 5,000 people boarding trains in Liverpool. The resulting 10,000 furious fans first demolished the empty stage, then promptly set fire to it.

Cheers Nigel

Post by: PaulT on October 07, 2010, 08:43:14 AM
Not sure about infamy, but I was there, and the only event I recall that could lead to any notoriety was that FC & Steeleye (or at least some of each band) played some tunes together after the recording had been completed, and were still going strong when the Granada crew started to pack up.  There was some booing when the music finally stopped, but not directed at the bands.  At which point, most people started the trek back to Ainsdale station.  Whether the event has subsequently been "embroidered" I don't know, but I certainly don't recall reading at the time of any "riot"  - these reports seem to have proliferated over the years.  I can't believe the figures often quoted of 10,000 people milling about on the foreshore.

(I'm looking forward to viewing this clip when I get home...)

I think he'd have found it hard to goose-step with jackboots full of sand.

What a kn*bhead.

I see Peggy was wearing that Man City-style shirt that he wore for the Angel Delight cover shots.  I actually went out & bought one of those as a result.  I WAS young & impressionable.

Let's hope some more clips surface soon...

Officially it's erased, BBC reused the tapes, footage doesn't survive, etc. but there must be someone out there with an early home video system, an obsessive type who taped every single edition of TOTP who has it and maybe doesn't even know...just a matter of finding them.

Deffo a viola; I've seen Simon play it (maybe not that exact one...) a fair few times.

That evening was the start of my love for this band; their music has been with me for almost most of my adult life - it's cheered me up when I was down, and it continues to inspire me.  Thanks Fairport -áll of you.

Since that was your first impression, I doubt you'd have recognized the songs (by title) that the post-filming "pickup" band played as the Granada crew was packing up ~ but do you happen to remember which members from the bands played together?  Did Ashley join his former Fairporters?

Unfortunately it's all a bit hazy - but I seem to remember Martin Carthy, Swarb, DM, Peter Knight, Simon, & Peggy being up there at the same time... not sure whether Ashley joined in... I don't remember 2 bass players at once - but Peggy might have used Swarb'd mandolin?  Sorry - I wish I could remember.

I can remember where we were sat - on the top of a dune off to the left of the stage as you face it - i.e. on Peggy's side.  We had an excellent view (and the sound was clear), we had a few cans of beer & a couple of hippies just upwind of us had an enormous "cigarette"... some of which may explain the memory gaps.  ;)

Had a similar experience at a beer festival recently  - The Alma Boobies were playing on stage, with a temporary Indian Takeaway set up next to it.  At one point the guitars lost all amp - resulting in the memorable request "Could you just try turning off that deep-fat fryer please mate, reckon we've hit tipping point.".  Yes, indeed we had hit the jenny's breaking point, and sound was restored at the cost of chips for the rest of the night.

No, it's slightly out of sync by just 0.1 s or so - well spotted.

I think it happened during editing - reducing picture size, converting to XviD (avi) and joining the two "halves"
( it came from two different VOB-files from a DVD, you see ), but I didn't think it a big problem, so I didn't
bother redoing the whole thing, as my old PC is rather slow for such "heavy" jobs.

That was lovely - thanks. I was a big fan of 10,000 Maniacs before I ever heard Fairport. I love their version of "Just as the tide was a flowing" as well, which again I loved before having heard of The Albion Band. I didn't even realise that 10,000 Maniacs still played.

I regularly litter my Facebook page with music videos of various stripes, surely well into the several hundreds by now, this one would have to be as well constructed as any I can recall. A real work of love, I don't think it would be in the least out of place to show it at Cropredy. A Sailors Life thru the minds eye of someone referring to themselves as MySpudTuber.

Back in 1975, The Seekers reformed for the first time, with Dutch singer Louisa Wiesseling.  They put out one self-titled LP with that line-up, and Swarb appeared on one track "Break These Chains".

And here's a video from that time, on Musikladen!  They're miming and Swarb's not physically there, but it's his playing!

Well I checked back to when this thing was put up on You Tube in October, and it doesn't appear anyone here has shared it yet. I regularly litter my Facebook page with music videos of various stripes, surely well into the several hundreds by now, this one would have to be as well constructed as any I can recall. A real work of love, I don't think it would be in the least out of place to show it at Cropredy. A Sailors Life thru the minds eye of someone referring to themselves as MySpudTuber.

I think there are enough Fairport aspects to this clip to put it in this section!

Back in '83 and back in Australia, Trrevor Lucas procuced Redgum's biggest hit "I Was Only 19", about the plight of Australian Vietnam veterans.  Probably that same year, the local 60 Minutes did a feature on the band and the song.  That feature is now up at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wNeaNkCzFLY

Not just the fact that TL produced the song and did it with FC at Cropredy '85, but also, Redgum perform an excerpt of Poor Ned (AKA Ballad Of Ned Kelly) which has practically become a standard, in fact Redgum first listed it as "trad" until informed otherwise...

Plus - around 1.50, Trevor makes a cameo in the background of the backstage segment!

It's quite an interesting feature altogether, around 13 minutes.

Fab. I recall Redgum were booked to play Cropredy one year ('82, I thought, but maybe I'm mistaken) but for some unknown (to me) reason it didn't come about. Most disappointing. Certainly, I remember the spine tingling Fairport version of IWON at Cropredy. A golden moment. I had a really nice video of a new year TV show, from a Fairport trader in Oz, but sadly it went AWOL a long while back.

He discussed this at his recent concert in Austin.  He said the Dutch Eagles had been unfamiliar with Iain's early '70s, pre-Eagles arrangements of SBR and "Ol' 55," and that it has been a pleasure to perform these songs with them on occasion.  He also marvelled that someone could earn "6,000 Euros a night pretending to be someone else."

He does indeed - he rose to the challenge of filling RT's shoes handsomely.  Shame he's never pushed his guitar playing chops like that since.  The sheer energy alone is inspiring.

Recently mentioned on the Sandy Denny list:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gvdr_kilrw4

Colour footage of Fairport & Sandy from 1975, with an all too brief excerpt of White Dress.  :D

Probably from the Van Speyk Show.

What will happen with the rest of that video, and the couple of other songs from the show...?


Been surfing and found this:
Fairport Convention Yorkshire TV
Broadcasted on December 29, 1975
Very last time Fairport Convention ever performed with Sandy Denny
Off-air recording

1. Iron Lion
2. Rising For The Moon
3. White Dress
4. Stranger To Himself
5. Brilliance Medley
6. Next Stop Girl
7. Mr. Lacey

Wondering if this is the source of the clip.It's audio only,haven't checked to see if it's the same performance yet.
Guessing track 6 is mistitled.

Quote from Sandy Denny blog (dunno if I'm allowed to post the url but it's easy to find...):  "Sometime in 1975, possibly early September, Fairport (with Denny on board) recorded a half hour session for Westward TV. This was first broadcast in the Westward region on September 25 1975 and repeated on Thames TV (December 22) and Yorkshire TV (29 December)"  However, I don't know of Janet S-P presenting for any of these - she was with LWT in 1975, I think...?

Just gone up, a few 'never before seen' videos of Fairport acoustic (SN, DP, RS, MA) live in Adelaide, Australia in 1996.   All were taken from the upper balcony using the theatre's video camera so it's a little distant and all - but still a bit of a snapshot of that time in the band's history.

I have posted two Fairport clips of Crazy Man Michael  - http://www.salutlive.com/2011/07/song-of-the-day-fairport-convention-crazy-man-michael.html - in a "Song of the Day" series I am running at Salut! Live (and which I started in complete ignorance of the Jon Boden project). One is what I take to be an amateur recording from Cropredy 2007 and is either misleading, because of technical limitations, or reveals imperfections in Chris While's delivery that I do not remember from being at the festival and her.

But I wanted something from that event, which stands in my memory as the most enjoyable concert I have attended, so would appreciate suggestions of better clips. I have been away from here for a  while and have not yet had time to go through the previous 50+ pages of this thread, which may well contain the answer.

Hi, Amateur Recorder here.  That clip is actually one I uploaded to YouTube right after that festival, but here is another version of the same clip with the corrected aspect ratio, and marginally better sound, which I uploaded a couple years later:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4KUDduCFxUs

There was a Mike Harding radio show at one point with the soundboard versions of the L&L set - don't know if that's still available online anymore, but it was at some point since that's the only way for me to have heard it.   Maybe it will clarify things, if you can find it.

All of the "better" versions of what I recorded from the L&L portion of that festival, along with what I had from one of the warm-up shows, are also up on YouTube.  Never got around to all of the others...

I'm pretty sure they're from 1987, when the band supported (or more like 'morphed into') Jethro Tull in the US.  As far as I know the only US dates they did in '85 were with Swarb in the spring...his last dates prior to his last Cropredy (as a member).

I'm sure there must be somewhere...basically (I think I'm right in saying) Fairport did a 30 or 40 minute set then Ric and Simon wandered off to be replaced by Ian and Martin for a full Tull set.

I saw that tour in Baltimore - went really only to see Fairport, and actually left in the middle of the Tull set, since they were into their "heavy metal" period and it was pretty unlistenable to me.  But I do not recall Maart being in the lineup with Tull, just Peggy, and definitely not DM (I'm a huge DM fan and would have stayed just to listened to him).  This site (http://www.electrocutas.co.uk/dates/td20.htm) says the lineup was "IAN ANDERSON. MARTIN BARRE
DAVE PEGG. DON AIREY & GERRY CONWAY OR DOANE PERRY."

And then there's this site (http://www.cupofwonder.com/crest2.html) with a fairly nicely detailed write-up of that era for Tull, with some references to Peggy (with a photo) and Cropredy, and a picture of a drummer who is definitely not Dave Mattacks.

I'm sure Maart did play keyboards, but I'm sure he or someone else will come and correct us if I'm wrong!  

Update: I've just checked, and Wiki tells me that Maart was in Tull from January 1988 to December 1991, so, you're probably right...

At work so can't check on this, but by description what Sam says is correct, as this was my first time hearing the words Fairport Convention before. In my case I saw them at the Centrum in Worcester, Massachusetts (monumental moment in my life actually-but I have written about it before on here so will let it go at that). It was Don Airey on keyboards and Doane Perry on the drums. As Tull was touring for Crest Of A Knave, Ric definitely came out to play his part on Budapest, and if memory serves correct, I think Simon and Maart may have come out as well, joining Peggy. Don't remember if DM came out. I still have the program from that tour!


Title: Re: Fairport-related Youtube Clips
Post by: RobertD on July 18, 2011, 06:35:37 PM
Actually, I just watched the clip on my iphone and can identify the Matty Groves and Crazy Man Michael clips. I correct myself, they are not from 1987(though the details of that 1987 US Tull support tour are correct), but from 1991, from the Alive In New York video, filmed at the now defunct Bottom Line Club here in NYC.  PS, you can't see me, but I was there :) This was in support of The Five Seasons album, and featured Maart reading that name in Japanese from a scrap of paper for benefit of the Japanese release! I don't have a Youtube account so if anyone wants to help the poster out, feel free. So guess that still leaves undocumented any clips of FC from that US support tour.

My brain might be muddled, but at my first Fairport gig (Glastonbury 1984), I seem to remember Swarb had a very long such break (for most of Sloth, if I recall).

Post by: colinrandall on August 27, 2011, 01:12:49 PM
Loads of clips, all of them Who Knows Where The Time Goes?, but I wonder whether I have unearthed any other Talkawhile subscribers have missed.

Probably not. As mentioned on my Swarb thread, this sort of winds up my Song of the Day series at Salut! Live -
http://www.salutlive.com/2011/08/song-of-the-day-fairport-convention-now-be-thankful-.html -  and it is part tribute to Sandy and the band/part apology to the man to whom I once promised, at his request, to make a cassette - yes cassette, it's a long-unkept promise - of all the versions I had of what was his favourite song. I have just spotted that at least one of the chosen clips is no longer viewable at YouTube so a bit of housekeeping is called for.

Other thing that intrigued me. The clip I lead with, from Unhalfbricking I believe, has had 710,179 views - ie up 246 from the 709,933 I noted when taking the code yesterday - has had 18 "dislikes". On the off chance that others have ploughed through the comments, was this just a quarrel with the chosen version or did some specify active dislike?

Katy's mum: I may have misunderstood your question. I thought you meant comments posted at my site but, re-reading your message, see that you may mean that you can actually see my site postings without going near the site.

If so, it still does not make a huge difference to what are quite small numbers anyway, and I can see from the Stats that a few people do follow the links here and visit the site. Each to his or her own!

Yes, whenever you write on your site, I receive an email containing the full article.

Hope for more as well, but this is from the same source as the Too Much Of Nothing clip which has been on Youtube for years, so maybe someone knows how many songs they did for this (assume its a TV show?)


Title: Re: Fairport-related Youtube Clips
Post by: John From Austin on September 09, 2011, 10:04:55 PM
The Youtube clip of "Nothing More" appears to come from the four-song performance recorded for Beat Club in 1970.  Gypsy Davey and Too Much of Nothing come from the same performance.  I can't remember the fourth song.  There is discussion below about the abortive attempt to release the entire set on DVD in the "Lost Performances" series.  Per the discussion, the whole thing was scrapped because no one bothered to license the rights before announcing the release.  Given the wild west ethic of the Youtube generation, I am not at all surprised this surfaced just as the official release was cancelled.

No idea about the venue, but from the collective hair dos and colouring (i.e. Ric in pre-hat days, Simon and Chris less grey), and Peggy's use of a Musicman Stingray bass which he hasn't used since, I'd take an educated guess that this clip dates from about 2001.

Yeah that would be the same clip, but I hadn't actually seen it at that point.  The Sandy Davis / Denny thing was admittedly an assumption, as I didn't - and still don't - recall an interviewer of the time with that name.

In Pompey (I'm almost sure it was - I remember a Big Top outside the Guildhall?) the crowd was so tightly packed there was hardly any room for dancing.

Also the scene of one of my least successful conversational gambits with a 'star'.

Me: "Hi Swarb...I'm a huge fan, and I'm really looking forward to seeing you next Thursday with Martin in Wingham, Kent.  Would you mind signing this album for me?"
 
Swarb: "Yes" (Swarb disappears for a smoke) ;D

I first misread that as the Brady Bunch, in which case I can't help.  I do however know someone who has that line-up on Scottish TV in I think 1977, on a VHS tape.  He keeps promising to lend it to me but keeps dropping off the radar.  I'll try again.  :)

In the past I have seen the Bonny Bunch line up playing I think on a Scottish TV show from about 79.  I remember it being very good and quite long.  But I can't remember much more about it.  Simon played dulcimer at one point.  And there's some hi-jinks involving chairs and Jams O'Donnell's Jigs as I recall.

Can't remember where I saw the footage (and can't find it on YouTube).  But it's definitely out there!

In watching these clips I am very impressed by Roger Burridge, and I love Bob Brady's enthusiasm in all these clips, smiling, clearly enjoying himself, engaging the audience. And I am a huge Dan Ar Braz fan, so seeing him here is fantastic. I remember on the Cropredy Box him saying very sincerely "maybe some of you have never heard of me before!" Its great seeing his playing here-he looked uncomfortable, yet you can see kind of a...oh what the hell kind of attitude...great stuff. I never thought I would see this, ever!

Great clips, thanks Michael. Although I only saw them once at a free outdoor show (Harlow Town Park 1976), they made a lasting impression. Very different in style to earlier or later line-ups, they were very entertaining & proficient & it's unfortunate they never really had the opportunity of producing a decent representative LP.

Midwinter rituals. Music by the Albion Band. Narrated by John Tams."   In 5 parts, starting here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W5_Z2gw_wek

Never thought I'd see this!  A track or 3 appeared in audio form on the "Songs From The Shows" CDs but to see the video is of course something else again...!

Maybe for the first time, there is no youtube clip to post. After hearing what Jude said yesterday about Joe Boyd, I've been looking for a clip of Eastern Rain. I cannot find one. If anyone knows of one, or indeed can post anything, please do let me know. Even just the music.

I have the song on the original LP, but it would seem the whole world is missing out on something special.

That would be a real shame. There is something really special about Fairport with female vocals - and as only one of those is still with us today you would think she'd be part of the celebrations...

My pal Nick (who has recently joined here but who I've known for years from other music forums) had this to say about the Bonny Bunch/Tipplers-era Fairport clips:-

"Interesting how Fairport had, by this stage, a virtuoso 'lead' bassist and a more basic guitarist (Simon certainly didn't want
to be flash, and Peggy compensates in the way that Enwistle did with The Who)."

I thought that was pretty astute.

I think they may have been taken down. The one I linked was uploaded quite recently, and I checked all posts on this thread since it was uploaded and it wasn't mentioned. If it's showed up before then it must be a repost of a removed clip so would suggest perhaps the others have been taken down.

No outtake, it comes after Sloth in the program and is in colour too. Ina.fr offered these programs on their website for download a couple of years ago. They had quite a few of these Pop2 broadcasts of which you could see the first 10 minutes or so. You'd pay them upfront and with that credit you could download programs in full, which you could play on your pc with a player/software they provided.
This particulary Pop2 broadcast had Soft Machine and Matthews Southern Comfort too, IIRIC.
There was more of Ian Matthews c.s. in other broadcasts, but no more of FC then.
I had it on my harddisc but a crash later.........

It seems Ina.fr does a DVD service nowadays, so get googling

A very rare Fairport-related single from around 1990 with Dave Pegg, Ric Sanders and Maartin Allcock joined by children from the Frank Wise School to raise funds for a hydrotherapy pool.  Lead vocals by one of the children.  Don't know how many singles were pressed but I suspect not many, as it's pretty rare now.

I have been remiss in never really tracking down vintage Fairport clips on You Tube previously but this thread has now lead me to some previously unknown gems. The Ainsdale Beach concert in particular is great quality and must be worthy of a commercial release? Perhaps there is more chance though of the Rockpalast set from 1976 appearing as quite a number of Rockpalast shows have found their way onto DVD lately. One can but hope.

OK, this is sort of a cheat because it's not really Fairport-related, except in so far as I can't help wondering how he would go down at Cropredy. And he is amazing. Ladies and gentlemen, Jon Gomm:

Here's a Fairport-related rarity - Trevor Lucas guesting with the Bushwackers in 1983 (audio only) on a version of John The Gun!  Never officially released.  I can tell you the audio originally came from at least a second generation reel-to-reel, then cassette, with very low levels, hiss and mono sound that wandered from side to side.  Much better now (ahem)!

Agreed.  I'll be honest...I spent most of their 12 years mourning the one before.. But in retrospect (and I saw them much more than any other lineup - probably 25 times or so) I miss them hugely.  I didn't like all their recorded output, but they definitely made good solid studio albums, and the last Fairport one I would really regard as a strong one - Jewel in the Crown - certainly the last one I ever listen to (with the exception of the current lineup's Golden Oldies selection) regularly.

For Grace they've taken out the intro minute and obviously had source tape as the ending is not intercut with credits anymore.

Doesn't look like they've done the same with the Steeleye tracks, so maybe permissions from the band were not given?

This was from the French Pop Deux series, filmed at the Taverne de l'Olympia in Paris. As Jules says it it was originally in colour but a lot of versions of these shows are circulating in black and white as the French SECAM format will only output a monochrome signal when played back on PAL equipment - so presumably a lot of people made the same mistake when transferring from one format to the other. The same reason incidentally that the Bouton Rouge '68 clip on the It All Comes Round Again documentary is in black and white when it was originally shot in colour.

You can purchase a download of the full show (in colour) that this came from direct from the TV company at a very reasonable 3.99 Euros - as long as your French is up to scratch, there isn't an English translation unfortunately.

Someone really ought to compile all this early footage for a DVD release, although I guess the cost of licensing would be prohibitive.

Ah, thankyou.  Great to see that up and about.  Are the rest of the early 80's vids up there too (makes mental note to check)?

This is my Fairport.  Love this band.   One happy boy... :)

I do not know if this has previously been flagged up here...its the 1982 'A very peculiar weekend' video...

Fantastic!...I've not seen this before! (16 years before my first Cropredy  :o)...Wish I'd been there!... :)
Going to have to set a couple of hours aside to watch it properly...Thankyou!

It is a real nostalgic trip back in time...82 was my first Cropredy...and I have never seen this video, purchasing them at the time was expensive...although I did buy the one from the following year. I owned the AT2 cassette tape and I am so pleased the song,'Here comes the cowboy's' is on the video. The chap who wrote the song, Brent Parlane is continues to perform in his native Australia) Brent knew Trevor Lucas who heard the song and decided to present it to Fairport as a song to perform in their set that year. I am in occasional contact with Brent and sent him a link the other day.

'82 is one of my favourite Cropredys, but hell, it didn't half rain during Fairport's set. We were fortunate in being able to camp at the top of what is now field 6 & could watch the stage in the warm & dry from our tent doorway, then sloshing our way to the front when it finally stopped.  :)

I just uploaded an instrumental interpretation of The Hiring Fair as performed in the mid-1990s by me (on bass) and my friend Jennifer Klich (on viola).  At the same link, you'll find footage of me sitting in as a guest bassist for one tune (Portmeirion) with Fairport on 18 Sept 2002 at The Knitting Factory in Hollywood, California.

Here's a rarity - a rare BBC documentary on the Albion Band from 1979!  A version has been doing the rounds with dodgy colour, but while this one is not spectacular it's a lot better; no constant moving to B&W and back.

Including:

Interviews with Ashley Hutchings and Richard Thompson, along with Keith Dewhurst in relation to the Lark Rise stage show, and various live excerpts from that show.  Live excerpts from unrecorded line-ups (Barry Dransfield, Melanie Harrold, Doug Morter, Martin Simpson, Andy Roberts & Dave Mattacks) and the Albion River Hymn with Maddy Prior, Simon Nicol, Phil Pickett etc.

Footage of the Albions in the studio, and the Kickin' Up The Sawdust band live.  The 'Rise Up Like The Sun' line-up (more or less) rehearsing Alright Jack, which various members took with them to Home Service.  And plenty more moments of musical and historical interest!

In 4 parts:

I don't know what to make of Ashley sometimes.  He can come across as a bit 'up his own backside', a bit humourless.  But it's a great snapshot of that period that I had no idea had been captured on film.

Farewell Farewell, Rainbow over the Hill and especially Shirley's Bonny Labouring Boy are wonderful, much better quality than the tape of a tape snippets previously on the tube.

I remember seeing them outside the NT on a freezing cold Boxing Day in the early 70s, Shirley in a fur coat (allowed in those days). Anyone remember that and what they performed?

I think the serious Ashley thing may come out of the folk revival when 'folk' and the 'tradition' was taken ever so seriously and there was little fun in it. Cecil Sharp House was a revered Holy Grail and the tradition had to be explored in a scholarly manner!Ewan Mc Coll said you could only sing song from the area you came from!!! Folk police. I preferred my folk with more of a smile and a jig!
Then of course we got, Wrigley,Connolley.Harding, Carrott, Digance who turned folk into comedy and folk clubs went in to decline.
I was lucky enough to see all the Mystery Plays and Lark Rise at the National in the late 70's early 80's. Brian Glover as God! They were incredible ,innovative pieces and the music was more than a key part.
I got a book called  Singing form the Floor ,for my b/day this month and it's a very, very good read and an evocation of the rise and fall of the folk club and the folk revival.

Trevor Lucas produced a couple of albums for the Bushwackers, but never recorded or sang with them.  In 1983 though, he joined them onstage for a few songs at the ANU in Canberra.  This is one song from that recording, Bold Jack Donahue, never officially released.  The original source was at least a 3rd generation reel to reel with hiss, low volume and sound that wandered from one side to the next.  It sounds better fixed up here...   :)

In honor of Dave Pegg's birthday yesterday, I hereby unleash on the world rare footage from his 45th birthday recorded in Toledo Ohio on 2 NOV 1992.  I had the honor of hanging out with him at a hotel bar after a Jethro Tull gig, and my friend and I had brought along a mandolin and my flute on the off-chance he'd be interested in jamming.  Here's our attempt at Locomotive Breath.  (I no longer dabble on flute, by the way -- I'm now strictly a bassist.)  Camera operator: Andrew Giddings

There was talk on the Chatter thread some months back about the slideshow that accompanied The Hiring Fair back in 1986.  Probably featuring Steph Pegg and thought to be lost in the mists of time.  It did appear on the Cropredy Capers video from '86 but that's long deleted.

Anyway - here's the slideshow!

Given the chatter about the relative merits of past & present line-ups, it's probably worth re-posting a link to this half hour of sheer delight from 1970. Not new, but I only saw it for the first time last night.  The exuberance of the performance provides that spark of excitement that is, to my ears, all too rare these days. Pretty fab in my 'umble  :)

I have seen this one in color. I believe this is the one that keeps getting pulled from YT periodically, unless I am mistaken. So if I have it right, Baton Rouge (with Judy and Iain) is on Youtube in color and b & w as is this one.

A mate of mine proudly showed me a photo of RT with a Celtic badge pinned to his beret. I was able to trump him big style with this clip! Don't know if it's commonly known that RT's great uncle was Bert Thomson who was one of Celtic's best players in the 1930s. He also played and scored for Scotland! He died at the young age of 30 and a crowd of 10,000 attended his funeral. There must be a song in there!?

Fwiw, my opinion on the 3 tracks in this session:

Myths and Heroes - a really good performance of arguably one of the strongest post-'85 Fairport recordings.  Gives one hope.

ATWCH - not a fan of the song, and think Simon's vocal is rather affected, but it's quite fun.

John Condon - I really really don't like this at all.  Nice sentiment and all that, but I found it twee and trite, I'm afraid.

These videos for me wasn't about the songs...it was more the band as a 'close up' act watching how skilfully they do play, Simon's voice seemed so rich and it made me appreciate them more musically somehow.  ;)

A couple of things have turned up on Youtube--- sorry I'm no good at posting links.

1. Six or seven minutes of the 1970 FC at Little Hadham. It starts with Flowers of the Forest, then a bit of an interview, then comes Now Be Thankful in various stages from composition ( RT--could it take another verse?) to performance.

2. The complete 93 mins of Richard and Linda (with Simon, Peggy and Michael Arscott) at the Rockapalast, Jan 1980. Some individual tracks have been on Youtube for years but interesting new (to me) material includes I'm A Dreamer, Night Comes In, Lonely Hearts and Sisters. OK the Sunnyvista era is not the top but some of that stuff comes over really well in performance.

Try typing in Fairport Convention 1970. It is 7 min 27 secs and was put up by someone by name of Adamski to whom many thanks.

I forgot to say on the Richard and Linda one the playing of Simon and Peggy is a sheer delight.

The Little Hadham footage is from a 1970 TV documentary London Rock, which in addition to Fairport featured The Faces, Linda Lewis and Marc Bolan. The YouTube clips are taken from a Sky Arts re-broadcast a couple of years ago.

Here's a rare audio recording of Dave Swarbrick with Australian bush-rock (etc) band Eureka, live in 1995. He did record a mini-album with them in 1998, but this is at the launch of the Attic Tracks CD. It's the Traffic rather than Fairport version of John Barleycorn, and I don't know if he's done a folk rock version of Lachlan Tigers before or since. NB bootleg quality sound.

I agree but, as you said, he played the fiddle (and a touch of mandolin and did the odd bit of songwriting) too.  His contribution was a tiny bit more than being 'lead singer'.

I really enjoyed Ruth Angells playing and Rufus did a Rufus Wainwright version of Who Knows, which I really liked alot more than the many Sandy impressions you get.

Until Michael Jerome posted it on his FB page, I hadn't seen this 50min RT TV show. MJ, Danny T, Pete Z & Teddy T comprise this particularly good line-up. I was fortunate to see them a couple of times, with one outstanding gig somewhat off the beaten track, in Brecon.  Their rendition of "Persuasion" was, & is here, especially fine. :)

I was there - Theatr Brycheiniog - too if that was '98 or the first half of '99...I was living in Lampeter and we made the trip over the day, spending a weekend there.  Awesome show.

Simon has recently posted this on his FB page.

"A big lift of the Lynch-Lid to Ralph Butler for bringing this little gem to my attention. I hope the RT branch of the Fairport family will enjoy the entire 90 minute TV concert we did (when I was still in my twenties!)
A short-lived touring combo of Richard and Linda Thompson, Dave Pegg, yours truly and Michael Spencer-Arscott playing up a nice steady storm behind the kit. He doesn't seem to be on FB but members of his family are, back at his home in Bermuda, where he is still in music, seemingly producing but hopefully still keeping his playing chops up.
There are some interesting items in the repertoire, many of which have sadly not been seen or heard since. Hard Luck Stories, Sunnyvista, Don't Let a Thief etc etc.
And I should apologise for my stage outfit. I was being post-ironic, channeling my inner Golf-Club Secretary. Honest."

There are a couple of audio tapes of this line=up, but I'd not seen any video.  :)

If you have not quite half an hour to spare, perhaps you may like to hear Simon and Ric in duo format back in 1996.  Nothing from the Fairport repertoire but a few rarities including Morris tunes, Duke Ellington, and the Bach Double Violin Concerto!

It's Peggy. As to the rest of the program existing, that would certainly be nice, but if I have it right, the audio of this clip was used on Fairport UnConventional along with Breakfast In Mayfair (with Sandy and Simon on lead vocals), and I believe there was a comment about the poor state of the film quality making other such clips difficult. That's just off my memory though which has been known to be faulty!

It's very cringy!   :-X  but the concert itself is of the time when I first heard of FC so it's quite special to listen/watch again. In fact the first time I saw them live was the 5 Seasons tour.

Post by: RobertD on August 22, 2016, 03:24:49 PM
Indeed it is Alive In New York and 1991 sounds correct as some of the material was from The Five Seasons. Though you can't see me I was at this show...or shows as Fairport always did two sets at this and other small American clubs in these days. Most of the time you could manage to pay for both shows and get a word with some of the band in between sets at the bar. I still miss The Bottom Line. It was a dark and kinda dingy place, with two annoying columns on either side of the stage that often obstructed the view but the sound was always really good I seem to recall. Saw a lot of other people there over the years too of course-Oysterband, Iain Matthews, Steeleye Span, and a bunch of singer=songwriters.

Not having been at Cropredy it was good to see these - a decent sounding set overall but how the Chris song about DIY made it in over Lalla Rookh or Lord Marlborough is a mystery.

Another question though is about Simon - obviously as he is getting older his voice isn't quite as resonant as it was - which is fine by me - but has he always gurned as much when singing? At times it looked as if he was physically in pain, is it something I just have never noticed over the years but it does look a bit odd.

Both Simon and Peggy were singing with exaggerated expressions at the warm-up and on Crop Saturday, I assume they've undertaken some exercises to extend their range.

It is indeed a beautiful version and thanks for posting it - I've never heard it before. I love a lot of her earlier, and especially more folky, stuff. However, noting that this was recorded round 20 years ago, and having heard her singing live (on the telly...) a few times over the past few years, I don't think her present voice would be up to such an exquisite rendition (not being bitchy, just sayin', her voice has "matured").

Haven't watched the whole thing very carefully, but he's definitely present and correct during Sloth (UPDATE: although standing near the rear and, in truth, barely playing anything resembling lead guitar at all.  Effectively, from this evidence you are correct, then!  Most of Sloth is a bass/fiddle thing.  Interesting, but not the greatest version ever.)  Fascinating footage though...  :)

It would be my guess it was all a deliberate thing. Oh you want us to mime...we’ll give you some miming! Yes we do call them ‘train stations’ rather than railway stations. One place that some incorrectly refer to as a station is the fabulous Grand Central, which is properly a Terminal. ‘Railway as a word is usually reserved for repair crews, as in there are railway workers fixing a crossing sorr of thing.

Supremely bad timing posting this....I've just been listening to Ashley's Guv'nor series for the first time since I bought them, with a view to condensing them down minus all the Fairport and other tracks that I have elsewhere, so that I might burn myself a collection that I listen to more often.
Hearing the splendid live rendition of the Rose and the Rock on volume 2, I pondered on the Non LeSurf Pas type gap in my Albion band stuff, and started thinking maybe I should explore that a bit.
Maybe not then.

Agreed, this is just a bit of fun by the look of it. If you like The Rose and The Rock then there is definitely more you'll like from this era of the Albions. Under The Rose and Stella Maris are both on Spotify.

What prompted me finding the clip was a bit of an Ashley Hutchings  binge on my part this week. I made a playlist of all aspects of his career-Albion Bands, Morris On stuff, All-Stars, just a sampler of it all that I really enjoy. Though I'm not a fan of Cathy Lesurf either, there are a few songs where I do sort of get the appeal and understand why she appeared on so many albums at the time. And when I hear them as part of a broad swath of Ashley's career it does fit in nicely. So I would say keep digging through those albums Mike. Also, though it was somewhat disappointing overall, if you can get your hands on the Free Reed Ashley Hutchings set there is some good stuff there too.

I don't have the bonus but that sounds like a good deal. There is some duplication from the Guv'nor series which was one of my hangups with it. The other being the book and organization of the discs was just rather bizarre IMHO. Other than that though, for just the music, that is probably not a bad deal

I know Fairport have never been known for their sartorial elegance but what the heck does Swarb look like here?

Also is it only his vocals live or is he miming as well?

The OGWT Archive channel comes up trumps once again - this time it's the Rosie/Nine line-up with Matthew, Mark, Luke and John and Brilliancy Medley from 1973:

https://youtu.be/H0oI30mq3kU

Brilliancy Medley is the same clip which appeared on one of the OGWT compilation DVDs some years back, but I don't know if this performance of MMLaJ has ever found its way out of the archives before.

Quite a few other (non-Fairport) goodies have been added to this account recently as well, so it's definitely worth keeping an eye on (before it gets taken down, as I doubt it's 100% legit).

Hmmmm.  I'm a little underwhelmed if truth be told.  Both could be from just about any electric album from the last 25 years, couldn't they?

The vocals on The Storm Won't Come seem a little weird to me (in a production sense).  They sit out in front of the music (I'm not sure if that means anything but that's what my ears think) in a really weird way...and then when the guitar comes in at 3:50ish it just sounds like RT playing guitar as only RT can and does.  Awesome and jaw dropping, as always, but with no connection whatsoever to what has preceded it.

Bones of Gilead I just don't really like, I'm afraid, especially that "By the flesh of Gilead, By the Bones of Gilead" bit.  

I'd love to fall in love, really fall in love, with another RT album, but it's been a long, long time.......about half my lifetime.  Then again, most of my favourite Fairport albums came out when I was still in shorts, so he ain't done that badly....  Cripes.  :-\

Interesting...David, what would you think was the last really classic RT album? I’d have to say Mock Tudor, which I think was a fantastic concept album with some truly great lyrics. I’ve enjoyed all others to a greater or lesser extent, but Tudor is the one I play the most.

It's another vote here for Mock Tudor as the last truly great album that I can listen to without skipping any tracks. There's been some great stuff since, of course, particularly Dream Attic, but some of the rest is patchy.

Apparently there were special "Europe Editions" of the Top Of The Pops series but they didn't start until 1971, so no luck there either!

Edit: OK, it seems the YouTube poster may have been misleading in saying it came from a Pickwick TOTP LP, because the soundalike version appears on various other labels instead (I'm going to assume it's the same on each one to avoid further confusion)...

Also the production and to a large extent, unfamiliarity. Even though RT was nearly 20 years into his post Fairport career at that point, his "solo" style was still developing when Rumor & Sigh came out and to a large degree that album set the template for much of the rest of his career. I think he has been remarkably consistent in subsequent decades but has perhaps lost the capacity to surprise. Personally I would take Amnesia, Hand of Kindness and perhaps Mirror Blue over Rumor & Sigh from that era and sort of agree that Mock Tudor was the last truly great album (and my personal favourite) though The Old Kit Bag comes close. All of the others are a mix of the great with the merely very good (though I might make exceptions for Front Parlour Ballads which I have never warmed to and the acoustic demos disc 2 of Dream Attic which outstrips the electric disc by a distance imho).

I feel like in some ways, the slight uptick in success and name recognition after Rumor & Sigh (and maybe I'm just talking about the US here) left Richard a little baffled about what direction he wanted to take career wise afterwords. Of course there would always be the guitar, but Vincent left him in a bit of a quandary I think. Beeswing is great of course, but Mirror Blue felt like a carbon copy of Rumor & Sigh otherwise, including what felt like a record label demand he write another song similar to Vincent (Shane & Dixie). Then we had You? Me? Us which confused the ground further. Are you an acoustic songsmith or an electric one? With the exception of Mock Tudor the rest follows this formula I believe. And that's not a knock. A mediocre RT album is still better than a lot of other stuff, but I've never been entirely convinced of at least a good third of his material since Rumor & Sigh. Meaning they don't get into my heart the way every song did on Amnesia. The way every song did on Daring Adventures. I just looked at my Ipod now at The Old Kit Bag and in my head right now I couldn't even remember one bit of how First Breath or Got No Right starts off. If I played them it would come back of course, but its the music in the head...called to mind at a fleeting thought that is what sticks with you. And I guess that is what I mean. Not as many grab me as they used to.

Post by: davidmjs on July 24, 2018, 07:10:56 PM
Production definitely.  His recordings from years back sound timeless.  His current material doesn't.  But even more than that it is just the familiarity of the material and how he approaches it.  We all know exactly where a solo is going to be (and to some degree what it is going to sound like).  This is just the nature of the rock and roll beast for an old 'un.  The numbers that make truly earth shattering music in their 70's in miniscule.  You won't hear me knockin' the man though.  I think he's a genius, and I've had some of my most fun times watching him live.  Put it this way, if he plays at the Electric Palace in Bridport I won't go outside and feel wistful like I did with Fairport...I'll pay my money.  Not sure I'd pay the going rate for the larger venues he tends to frequent these days, mind.

Been watching some old Fairport clips today.  Starting with The Man They Couldn't Hang, then the 1981 Granada thing with Richard and Linda, and now the 1982 Cropredy film, which I really most enjoyable:

I know they've been up for a while, but the four clips of Fairport on Scottish TV circa 1976/7 are so much fun.  Posted originally by our mutual friend from Australia, they are gathered here by another YouTube user (though they're in the wrong order!):

In late 2015 for my 30th anniversary on air, Maart gifted me an exclusive recording for the occasion, a version of the old Playford tune Nonesuch.  Not on any of his albums and up to now only on the show blog, but I thought it warranted a wider audience, hence this video.

Summer Before The War seems to have been the go-to song for Fairport's UK TV appearances in early 1989, though Maart is playing a different instrument in each! Here's another, from HTV Wales...

From Scott Doonican on FB, for a very worthy cause. (Apologies if it's already been posted elsewhere)

"Every year for the past few years I would get a phone call, e-mail or message from Maart Allcock, asking me what we were going to collaborate on for our annual Christmas charity single.
I don't quite recall how or why this annual tradition started, but I am sure wine and late night Facebook messages were involved.
Over those years The Bar-Steward Sons of Val Doonican and Maartin Allcock, parodied the obvious big hitters from Slade, on the subject of Austerity (with a capital 'A') and Wizzard, on the subject of the Americanisation of the festive season, whilst I also got to sing alongside the legendary Dave Burland for an Everly Brothers duet, with Maart playing the music in the style of The Rolling Stones. You couldn't make it up!
I always loved that call, as I knew it always resulted in two months of late night conversations about mixes, the 'sound' we were deliberately trying to pastiche, and often, our own love of different musical artists and genres. Maart taught me so, so much, and was incredibly generous and selfless with his time, often only ever breaking off to "give [his] ears a rest" to watch his beloved Man United play a match or to cook a meal for his lovely wife Jan. I will always consider myself extremely privileged to have worked with such a genius musician and producer, but moreso to have Maart's respect as a fellow musician and as a friend.
Last October, when Maart said "Scott, what Christmas song have you rewritten for us to do this year?", I had an old rewrite of Fairytale of New York that I had played years previously, at the back of my mind. Maart dismissed it as he admitted he was never a fan of the original song, and I am so glad he did...
On suggesting that we could actually attempt a 'straight' cover of a classic Christmas single, Maart instantly said "I have always wanted to do Greg Lake's Christmas Song". I liked the prospect of us doing it, but went a step further by suggesting we created the least commercial Christmas Single possible. Like an "Anti-X-Factor" affair. Something that WE loved. Something that could be borderline self-indulgent! I suggested we covered the song but that we would deliberately fuse folk and traditional music with prog rock... pretty much the last thing anybody would have expected from the unlikely pairing of a comedy band from Barnsley and a former member of England's most revered folk band.
Björn was the first to set to work, creating a plan for time signature changes, folk reels and other such things, whilst I went all 1975 era Queen, creating a wall of Brian May harmony electric guitars and a choir of vocals. It was all sent to Maart in Wales, via e-mail and in his Santa's Workshop he created the most stunning thing. The result of his efforts was this version. I can't hear the Greg Lake original now without thinking of my friend Maart.
I missed your call this year. xxx

This is indeed wonderful. I've been fascinated by the John Lee story via Fairport, but there is so much more here to the story that I was unfamiliar with. Plus as a Fairport (and friends) document it is terrific.

Looking forward to putting some time aside to watch this. A look at the BBC Genome project gives the transmission details and this version is some 15 minutes shorter than the first airing in February which does include Sandy in the credits.

What a fantastic programme. It really puts the album in context, which I’ll give a spin to tonight. Great to hear Martin Carthy. Does anyone know if the instrumental snippets (at the 16:30 mark) were written especially, or are from somewhere else?

I believe that is the segment of a slightly reworked Sir William Gower Paul mentioned earlier in the thread.

Yes, that and the version of Abide With Me will have been recorded especially for the programme, but neither had to be written (as they already had been !).

Martin Carthy looked great.  He was a handsome bugger.

A YouTube channel with a number of rare late-70s / early 80s Fairport videos - and the complete performance of Carthy & Swarbrick from Once More With Felix in 1967!

I'm reliably informed (by the channel owner) that these are from the BBC archives.

It seems that channel with all the Fairport rarities has been taken down due to multiple copyright infringements. I'm not sure what else he had on there, but I'd be surprised if it was due solely to the FC videos.

At the 1969 Royal Festival Hall "Liege & Lief" premiere show, Fairport performed the country standard Just A Little Talk With Jesus. This is the only known recording of it - very poor quality, but rare. It's only an excerpt, and fades out during Swarb's yodel. :)  Apparently, it's Sandy on the violin.

Interesting! In some Fairport/Sandy collection of photos I have seen a photo of her holding a fiddle, but assumed she was just goofing around. So how many people have picked up a fiddle for Fairport now, if even for a 'limited' performance? Swarb, Ric, Chris, Simon, Peggy, Roger Burridge, Sandy, Maart...any others?

Just noticed this.  Many thanks, very nice.  Scrolling down, it is also good to see a few of the numbers that Pentangle performed, as they play so rarely these days.  The Pretty Things set, too.

I was hoping to get to the Million Dollar Bash myself, but dog-sitting duties intervened.  Friends who went tell me that the music was excellent, but the catering was chaotic.  One dreadful burger van for the entire field!  Makes you really grateful for Cropredy.  At the event, they mentioned that they intend to hold a similar one-dayer next year, to commemorate the 1970 festival.

I've just watched the Broughton Castle reunion from 1981 and what a revelation. Although the sound and picture quality are average at best, what comes across is how good the band are and they seem to be having more fun than I've ever seen them have. Simon dancing and jumping around, Swarb fiddling like a man possessed, the sound being dominated by Peggys bass but showing him to be a unique player. I'd love to see this cleaned up if possible and given an official release. The set was mammoth at over 4 hrs but what a great document it could be.

Guessing because there are visible pauses between songs that maybe the source tape quality was poorer on the missing songs and thus left out?

The Broughton Castle reunion set on you tube is not the full set by any means. At the end the compere, ( anyone know who he is ? ), says that they did 4hrs and 10 mins. The full set list is in the booklet in the Cropredy Capers box. In the film Judy Dyble, looking extremely nervous, sings Both Sides Now but according to the book, she also sang When Will I Be Loved.

Both the original Videotech & the Musicflk reissue, have a running time of about 110mins.

The missing tracks are;

Brilliancy Medley / Cherokee Shuffle (with RT instead of JD)
John Lee
Lady of Pleasure
Jams O'Donell's Jigs
Eynsham Poacher
General Taylor
John Barleycorn
Angel Delight
Bonny Bunch of Roses
Fiddlestix
When Will I be Loved
Wall of Death
Now Be Thankful
Sloth
Nathaniel Gow's Lament For His Brother / Rory of the Hills

In a letter from Videotech sent with my replacement copy (returned for a hideous bass hum & very fully rectified), there's a comment regarding the  release the GPs Friday set being problematic due difficulties with one of the performers, no prizes for guessing which. So, there's confirmation that it was filmed & hopefully, the footage still exists somewhere.

It would be nice given today's impovement in technology, whe whole Fairport set could eventually see the light of day, but I'll not hold my breath.

The same applies to '82, where the video release was only a portion of the whole.

Happy to be proved wrong. But I remember in the book Richard basically saying it was just a thing done for fun and what was it? All of 6 gigs. I think maybe a little surprised people thought of it so fondly.Similar to  having kept Small Town Romance unavailable for a long time. He didn’t think much of it but eventually came round.
