The History of Fairport Convention

ICD 4 (vinyl, UK, November 1972)

Album History

This double album (but single CD) was released at a time when it seemed that Fairport had ceased to exist, and included highlights from all their albums to date (except the first). The original release came with an LP size booklet, and had a ribbon attached to the top right corner, that was issued in four different colours: red, white, blue and green.

For reasons of space, 'Crazy Man Michael' and the Lieg & Lief Medley are ommited from the CD.
