Iím afraid there is, Keith, as it seems to lead to a number of porn pop ups.  I have removed the original post.

Please do not post links to suspect servers putting up pirated material.

If it appears on the likes of YouTube and isn't taken down, then fair enough.

I've finally got around to seeing it.

Overall, a lovely introduction.  I realise it ain't meant for me at all, but I do wonder how many people were drawn to the documentary that weren't already aware of the band?

My personal negative issues with it included:
Wakeman gave a very odd interview (I thought) and added little to the mix.  Some of it didn't make a lot of sense...Fairport moving out of the folk clubs in '69 for instance?  Really?!  

Some of the footage didn't match what was being discussed - DM talking about how it was immediately he joined and them playing some FH footage in the background.  Things like that...there were several.

Watching that documentary you'd have been convinced Simon left in '71 and rejoined in '85 (the way his interview is cut makes it look like that is what Peggy is telling us)

I thought the screen image with "over the next decade the band had lots of members and were ready to call it a day" or whatever, was naff and disingenuous.  I know this wasn't meant to be a full blow by blow history, but we could have had a little bit of contextualising that needn't have taken up more than a minute or two.

On the positive side all of my favourite members interviewed beautifully and were modest and generous and kind.  I was very pleasantly surprised by Ralph and Winwood's interviews.  Ultimately, the conclusion moved me greatly, and made me sad that I (to at least some degree) no longer feel part of the gang.

I'm really glad it exists, and I hope new people did see it and did start delving around.  As a documentary record I'd give it about 5 or 6 out of 10...but as a representation of some of what makes this band so important to so many people it has to score 1 or 2 higher than that.

All just my honest opinions - no axes to grind.

He also seemed to think that the band were called "Fairports".   Grin
