Fairport’s 1975 opus was Sandy Denny's official return to the band & illustrates what an impact she had on the band's dynamic.

Her voice, the band's most powerful instrument in Richard Thompson’s absence & her song-writing on each track on the album, are as strong as ever. This was the last album & the last incarnation of Fairport Convention to present itself to the public as a contemporary rock group & as such represents the best of both their heavier & more traditional tracks.This 2cd re-issue is re-mastered without losing any of the feel of Glyn Johns’ lush production. The inclusion of home & studio demos & the band's incredible set at the LA Troubador in 1974 only sweetens the deal.
