2000 reissue of Fairport Convention's 1969 album, on 180 gram vinyl and housed in a poly sleeve. "By Unhalfbricking Fairport had already redrawn the arbitrary lines that divided folk and rock in the same way that their heroes, The Band, had done in the States. Thompson, by now, was a fully-fledged master of his craft (at the age of 20!): 'Genesis Hall' being the first of his really melancholy masterpieces. Yet, such was the wealth of talent in the band that only one other of his contributions was featured. Denny provided her signature tune 'Who Knows Where The Time Goes', and 'A Sailor's Life' (featuring future long-serving member Dave Swarbrick on violin) proved conclusively that a traditional song leant itself perfectly to the kind of extended jamming normally reserved for more testosterone-fueled blues workouts by the likes of Cream."
