Listening to (and watching - on youtube) the Brasenose gig from last August... happy, but soggy memories.  

Can't get to a Wintour gig this year, aiming to do a Spring tour gig, deffo doing Saturday at Cropredy - if SARS-19 and the Tony Hibbert (**) impersonator in the Kremlin allow...

(** Never seen in the same room together - TH (former Everton full-back) and Vlad (any excuse to get me shirt off again) Putin).

For me , the loss of Richard to the band is a step too far , making Babbacombe Lee (and Angel Delight) more like footnotes to the classic run of albums
Now if Simon had been ready to take on more vocals alongside Swarb after Richard left .....and maybe hired another guitar player


Four-piece Fairport is my favourite, I think. Angel Delight, The Bonny Bunch Of Roses and Tipplers Tales make up my top three by the band.

I didn't really get on with Babbacombe Lee until fairly recently when someone - possibly on here - recommended the 2012 live rendition which has helped it click for me. I kick myself for avoiding that year's tour, now.

Just discovered the music of Eggs Over Easy. Very nice country-rock.


I think they included John Steel of the Animals at some point...


You're right, they did. I think he played on their unreleased (as far as I'm aware) 17971 record. Chas Chandler was their manager so I imagine he introduced him to the band.

I suppose playing Breakfast In Mayfair (great song)8 times instead is cheating


Yes, that would really be quite rotten.  Grin

The first 10 or 11 albums were such a massive massive part of my youth and along with several others (Who's Next, Skull and Roses, Eclection, Ogdens, Pillow, and Astral Weeks) were played to death and still remain fresh. What a time we grew up in.

Full House is (generally) my favourite FC album (with the next favourite four being those that preceded it), but in recent years I' ve grown to really love Angel Delight, and if I'm being generous put it in the pile with the first five, which I still think is a run of work that only a tiny number of bands have matched.  BL is a lesser work, but near the top of the 'second division' for sure....


Except this run is from three or four different bands with the same name.  Grin

I think of 'Babbacombe' Lee as being at the very least an attempt at a major work, where as Angel Delight was more of a holding operation. I enjoy both, mind.

Jules


A very good point, well made!

BL is a very decent album, but for me there's a slightness and one dimensionality to it (that's overstated, mind to make the point) which AD doesn't have.  I love Nine too.  Well, I love most of Nine...  Wink

OK for homework tonight I'll put Babbacombe Lee on for a listen (on CD)
I guess it's best to play it straight through being a concept album
I suppose playing Breakfast In Mayfair (great song)8 times instead is cheating


For a long time I was satisfied with the Babbacombe Lee tracks on History of Fairport.

Of the post - Sandy albums, I think Nine is a very fine Fairport album. Trevor's singing makes the whole thing worthwhile. Angel Delight is very good, but not as good as. I think I've only listened to Babbacombe Lee a handful of times,if that. Its okay. Maybe I should  make more of an effort with it. 🙂
