 Apologies if this has been discussed elsewhere, but a search didn't reveal anything; does anyone know much about this? Is it even a bona fide release?  Huh  https://www.amazon.co.uk/Tree-Roots-Fairport-Convention-Songs/dp/B07CXBXR63/ref=sr_1_2?s=music&ie=UTF8&qid=1527785932&sr=1-2

The label is shown as Commercial Marketing which is what usually shows up for one of the big conglomerates (Polygram I think) so it looks legit. I am guessing a compilation from the Island years of the various Dylan covers. Would that be enough to fill an album if live and BBC recordings were included?

Jack O Diamonds
I'll Keep It With Mine
Dear Landlord
Si Tu Dois Partir
Percy's Song
Down In The Flood
All Along The Watchtower
Knockin On Heaven's Door
George Jackson
Million Dollar Bash

by my reckoning. If they go beyond the Island years they could add in Country Pie and Open The Door Richard. It is a bit meagre.

You could also add in:

Girl from the North Country (Cropredy 92)
When I Paint My Masterpiece (SwarbAid)
Tomorrow Is A Long Time (Cropredy 87)
Lay Down Your Weary Tune (BBC session 67)
I Don't Believe You (Nine out-take)
Highway 61 Revisited (Cropredy 98)
Forever Young (Cropredy 89)
You Ain't Going Nowhere (Cropredy 02)
It Takes A Lot To Laugh... (Cropredy 02)

Yeah, I missed out Cropredy performances (apart from Brougton Castle) because I think they are unlikely to be included but you never know. Have the two in bold been officially released? If so they must be on editions that I don't have.



Edit: I see Lay Down was on Disc 4 of the BBC set. Excluded from my digital collection on sound quality grounds along with much of the other material on that disc

Both of them can be found on the Fairport Unconventional box.  But yes, the Cropredy performances may not make it onto the collection.  But I thought I'd list them all (that I know of or have) anyway.

Add "Open The Door, Richard" from "Red & Gold"

I made such a compilation for my own pleasure years ago, but allowed myself to use covers by RT, IM, SD, AH etcetera
(the et cetera didn't include The Dylan Project Cool )

Pretty much as expected then. Given that they have included "solo" recordings, it is a pity they could not find room for The Albion Band's version of Seven Curses or Ashley's Ballad In Plain D, either of which would have been preferable to the woeful version of All Along The Watchtower from last year's box.

The sleeve art also seems misleading as various line ups are represented. It all seems a bit of a pointless excercise. I'll probably still buy it.  Roll Eyes

I haven't got the George Jackson track, but apart from that, I have the rest already.

Can't see buying this for one track.



Edit: It's an additional track from a later version of Nine than mine, but I have retrieved it via a pal. Definitely not in the market for this album.

I constructed it as a playlist yesterday. It is a surprisingly dull listen and gives a distorted view of the band. Swarb, for example, despite playing on several of the recordings, is barely present here.

You lot are fast off the mark  - I just saw it in a Spin mailing and they're often way ahead (No, I don't buy anything from them).

HArd to see who this is aimed at really, except Fairport completists.
