My copy has just arrived with the morning post (at 1.00pm!) so that’s this afternoons entertainment sorted  before I go to London tonight to see Mary Chapin Carpenter  Smiley

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.


Much as I like the music on the various Free Reed box sets, Nigel Schofield made a lot of errors and some head scratching claims in the booklets which I find rather surprising for a big fan.

Also in the notes Nigel says that Richard Thompson's "Career-spanning set: one half acoustic- the other electric with Peggy, Simon, DM, & Christine Collister" was at the end of Saturday night!

I was present for a hastily organized 1967 line-up reunion in 2007, as well. "Time Will Show The Wiser" made the 2007 DVD, with Iain, Judy, RT, Simon, Ashley, and I believe both DM and GC (or at least DM) on drums.  If I recall correctly, someone remarks that they realized late that they had the 1967 configuration present, so they performed it with little or no rehearsal.

I seem to remember being asked if I would do  that reunion several months before  Grin
We did rehearse together at Woodworm studios and we did a warm up at the Mill, so not completely unrehearsed Grin

I stand corrected and one-upped. For the record, it did not sound unrehearsed in 2007, but I nevertheless had some misinformation bouncing around in my head.  Smiley

He is a terrible writer. Everything he produces is riddled with errors and he has no objectivity. It is just a shame that that he has become the authorised voice of the band. There must be better candidates. What is Patrick Humphries up to these days?

I hope you are huddled in an increasing number of jumpers as the CD goes on, and possibly sitting in the fridge by the end, in order to recreate the genuine experience!  Wink Grin

Totally agree and it’s almost as if we weren’t there (except for the crowd cheers recorded at the end of the tracks)
