Listened again and really enjoyed it. Truly a memorable evening. Some great performances.

A few typos in the listing, but apart from that, immense.

Coupled with the actual errors... Does nobody read this stuff?  Mind boggling.

But, aye, it's arrived here too.  Apart from the obvious, the best Fairport release for many a long year....  It's a bloody good live album.  Excellent.

Not sure I want to be reminded of that evening as I was in agony with sciatica and listened to most of the set lying down in my tent.

According to Setlist.fm (much more reliable than my memory) the actual setlist that night was

1   Bottom of the Punchbowl / East Neuke of Fife / Ye Mariners All
2   Summer By The Cherwell
3   Time Will Show the Wiser
4   I Don't Know Where I Stand
5   Reno Nevada
6   Suzanne
7   Farewell, Farewell
8   Crazy Man Michael
9   Come All Ye
10   The Deserter
11   The Lark in the Morning Medley
12   Tam Lin
13   Walk Awhile
14   Poor Will and the Jolly Hangman
15   Sloth
16   Now Be Thankful
17   Sir Patrick Spens
18   Fotheringay
19   The Ballad of Ned Kelly
20   Talk About Money
21   Rising for the Moon
22   White Dress
23   A Surfeit of Lampreys
24   The Hiring Fair
25   The Hexhamshire Lass
26   Jewel in the Crown
27   Who Knows Where the Time Goes?
28   Our Bus Rolls On
29   Dirty Linen
30   Matty Groves
31   Meet on the Ledge

So Bottom of the Punchbowl / East Neuke of Fife/ Ye Mariners All is missing, as are I Don't Know Where I Stand (Jude's only lead singing of the night), Sir Patrick Spens (cocked up by Peggy I recall), Talk About Money (understandable as that's Sally's number with them from the tour), & Jewel in the Crown.


But we do have Our Bus Rolls On. Oh, joy.

Still, with that possible exception, a bravura performance and the sound quality is crystal clear, even to my deaf ears.

So only missing 3 “useable/legitimate” songs then (I’m not counting Summer by the Cherwell)

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?


Indeed riddled with them.
Don't know if it's a real error or just a (stupid? mean?) oversight but mentioning "The Full House line-up -...., for heaven's sake!" without pointing out Swarbrick missing and Chris Leslie filling in for him (as opposed to mentioning earlier Dave Mattacks doing the same for Martin Lamble) is not very smart either.

When Swarb complained about the mistakes in the Fairport by Fairport book Nigel defended himself, correct me when I'm wrong, by the time pressure and lack of proofreading opportunity caused by the publisher.
Who's to blame this time?

The sound on these is excellent. Just to check the difference I played the boot of the whole show recorded on the field that night and have to tip auld hat to the man with the mic, the quality is excellent.  He only lets  him self down for not pressing the pause button for the durations of "Summer " and "bus"😬

I'm a nitpicker, I know.
But the liner notes also mention the TV program "Baton Rouge"
Should be "Bouton Rouge"

I listened to it for the first time today and absolutely loved it.
I kept thinking it was an ‘old’ recording, from ‘back in the day’. It really brought back the feel and spirit of last Cropredy. Superb.

I like ‘our bus rolls on’ as a statement of intent, but it really jarred for me here, sounding a bit ‘twiddly’, as it didn’t fit with the ‘grit’ of the rest of the tracks - and highlighted where the chaps had changed over recent years.

My main gripe.....cardboard sleeve.....so easy to tear. First world problems.

I haven’t read the sleeve notes yet......need to find my reading glasses!

Great cd, great souvenir of a magical weekend - thanks chaps.

Yes it is most enjoyable and receiving the most repeat plays here of any Fairport release since the last Cropredy one (2008?). The one with John The Gun on.

Two small criticisms, bearing in mind I was not there so am not sure what it was like on the night but Jude is too low in the mix on the songs where she appears. It almost sounds as if Ian is singing solo. And some of Chris's vocal mannerisms are going a bit X Factor. Why stick to the melody when you can embellish it with 27 superfluous notes? It only happens briefly but it is unnecessary.

I thought it was just me!  I agree with you on both counts.

This is the first Fairport album I have listened to more than once for a long time. I rather like it.  I do like the (for me) new arrangement of "Farewell Farewell".

Dittos on all of the above.  I listened to this three or four times through in my car before I finally put something else in the changer.  Great sound, great playing, (mostly) great song selection  Smiley, no complaints!

I'm planning on buying more to give away as gifts this year to a couple of uninitiated family members.
