Yes, my Fairport too.  Great fun.

That's great - and a very good reason to delay getting on with the gardening ...

Can you clarify the date then, Robert?

Filmed in May of 1991 if I recall correctly. Would have to double check the video at home. Touring The Five Seasons album. Think the full show is on YT as ‘Alive In New York’

That would be around the time I first stumbled across the band. I'd not long moved to Oxford and bought tickets for their show at the Apollo, on a whim. I remember the support was the excellent Kieran Hapin. Still have my copy of his Crystal Ball Gazing cassette that I bought on the night.

Just to elaborate further, this was at The Bottom Line, much loved club for folk and folk rock especially, located in Greenwich Village but closed many years ago now. It wasn’t exactly a cheerful venue in the looks department, and had some pillars that obstructed your view. Seating was at long tables and uncomfortable seats….that being said I missed it! Most bands like Fairport would do 2 sets a night and I would go to as many as I could. I also Steeleye there, after Gay Woods had rejoined, touring the ‘Time’ album. One of my favorite memories was Oysterband, with John Jones in full leather jacket, boots and sunglasses mode stepping out on a table in front of  the stage with his melodeon, miraculously dodging people’s drinks. Good times!

Fairport played there in '84 ish as well I remember with a Swarb, Peggy, Simon, DM lineup as I recall...I've got a really good recording somewhere.

Yes The Bottom Line and one called Gerde’s Folk City were the big folk venues. Small Town Romance was culled from gigs at both venues I believe

Sadly no longer with us, Kieran stayed at our house when I booked him for our folk club way back. He turned up with Maart on bass and was amazing although our ears were ringing by the end of the evening. Fee for the night was just £35. A very talented songwriter.

After I moved to Leeds, I used to see him play, every now and again, at the backroom of The Grove Inn. Always put on a great night.

And now, a tune oft played by FC... performed here by Yorkshire-based jazz-rock combo Back Door (from their 3rd LP, Another Fine Mess, and released as a single!):

What do we know about this little beauty?  I've never seen it before.  Clearly the '73-4 lineup playing in the Brasenose garden, presumably at that time...

Contains some great local footage.  Well worth 15 mins of your time...

I've seen the footage of Polly before, but not the rest of it.

What a treasure! Thanks David for sharing! Smiley

I had a VHS tape ("It All Comes Round Again"), a 2 hour documentary with "Polly on the Shore" included from this footage, along with much from Cropredy 1987. I would love to have seen a DVD release to replace my worn out tape, because it's a great watch!

As has been pointed out elsewhere (and which I missed actually) it is mimed (or most of it is anyway - there's some debate about Hexhamshire Lass).  I asked DM what it was used for.  "Promotion"  Grin  I actually find the non band scenes some of the most interesting parts of the film.

I don't think the shot of the baby being fed the dregs of someone's beer glass would pass the censors these days!  Where is that child now, I wonder...?!
