... in 1984. "To Althea" from that year is included in the Fairport Unconventional boxed set, but no details of who played keyboards. I can't remember, but I guess DM or Maart on that one, and probably Day Trip.
wasn't that before Maart joined?

So, if we know DM was there...I suspect it's a fairly decent guess to assume it was him. He's fairly available on FB so I'd suggest Colin ask him tbh...

Re the Youtube channel: wondering if it might be Michael Hunter, from Fiddlestix (the Australian Fairport fanzine thing). He's active in the Fairporters group on FB. Or he might know who it is, if not him?

Colin is trying to locate a copy of this rare cassette.

https://www.discogs.com/release/23269379-Fairport-Convention-Here-Live-Tonight

He's after the Sloth.  The original tape is greatly preferred but if anybody digitised it, that too could suffice.

Michael Hunter has sorted apparently  Smiley

Well, we should be getting a decent version of Sloth off it at least.  What's the whole thing like?  Decent I imagine...they were new young and enthusiastic in '86!

Yes, pretty fine stuff. Both this & the 2nd, imaginatively titled, "More Live Tonight" are worth hearing.  Smiley

Another request from Colin:

Does anyone have another recording of the 1987 Folk on 2 recording from Leamington Spa (Broadcast 28 Jan 87)?  The one they're working from is a little weak...
