Just seen that Amazon lists the album for pre-order, but the listing has reviews of What We Did on Our Holidays!

Confirmed during the Union Chapel gig that Sir Pat was dropped due to a cock-up by Peggy.

Nice.  With all the provisos already talked about on here and in your review, I'm really looking forward to giving it a spin.

One small question - are the lineups quite right on some of the tracks? Maart seems to be listed twice on Rising for the Moon.

It though a great memento of that moment in time. Stupid grin still intact!

I am reliably informed that this was looked at and discarded as uneconomic.

Youtube is the preferred video outlet for Fairport for the foreseeable future.

 Ah. Shame. Thanks Andy. I was ill on the day itself but having a ticket I was determined to go. Lasted till about 10 p.m. but the cold finished me off... Sad

Donít mind that as YouTube is cheaper than forking out for a DVD which will no doubt cost a small fortune as they normally contain a load of extraneous stuff you usually only watch once but is there to justify the pricing.

Sorry to hear that. I missed much of Richard Thompsonís set as I was suffering from a rather severe diabetic hypo due to my type 1 condition and I messed up my injection! †Embarrassed

Iím on insulin and Iíve found over the years what with the heat and the constant moving around my levels go much lower than usual
I find I inject the usual amount but can drink beer and have foods Iíd usually avoid to stop me going low.
Itís the one weekend of the year where I donít worry about what I eat and drink!!
The first year I was diagnosed I injected as normal and narrowly avoided two hypos!
I quickly learnt from that!

Hi Steve yeah Iím generally the same - eating and drinking stuff that I wouldnít normally contemplate. Last year though I over-compensated thinking that burgers and oggies and Mexican and ice cream and beer would send my blood sugar levels too high. I shouldíve learnt by now after 45 years with Type 1 Diabetes. However a guy I met last year who sat next to me saved the day by donating his doughnuts (maybe I should re-phrase that  Grin )

Got more of a prob this year though as Iíve been changed onto matching insulin dosages with carbohydrate counting so itíll have to be even more guesswork as Ikve got a new type of insulin as well!

 Blimey. Your issue was worse than mine. I just had a s***ing sinus infection. Nine months late I should probably say: If anyone stood in a pile of vomit just outside Williamscot, I'm deeply sorry  Embarrassed

Back to the album - my copy arrived this morning, giving it a first listen now. Superb so far. Nice work, chaps !

However, pedant alert, Nigel Schofield's sleeve notes - the current FC dates from 1998 when Gerry Conway joined, not 1996 as the notes say.

Also, I'm not sure about his observation that this reunion of the debut album lineup was a "genuine first."
A quick scan of my Cropredy 2002 35th Anniversary cd shows the same lineup gathered, GC subbing for Martin Lamble rather than DM who was absent from proceedings that year.
