  • @activewaste Well said. Richard Thompson, Sandy Denny and Ashley Hutchings were all vital members of the group and brought a lot to the table, but they're like Yes or King Crimson or The Fall in that despite all the lineup changes they've endured they've maintained a pretty consistently high level of quality throughout their lifespan. Babbacombe Lee and Tipplers Tales are two of their best, IMO, and don't feature any of the three. Well, Sandy Denny sings on one song on the former, but that's it. But yeah, you're missing out on tons and tons of good/great albums if you give up on 'em after Full House.
  • RIP Bruce Rowland, drummer for Fairport Convention from 1975 through 1979
  • If you stopped at Full House you are really missing out, Angel Delight is stunning.
  • May I just say, that most here are missing out, I only have one Sandy Denny album among my top 10 albums. The first 5 albums are great, but there are many later greats as well, Expletive Delighted, Angel Delight, Tippler's Tales, Jewel in the Crown, they are amazing albums, give thm a try. And I suspect all those loving Sandy Denny in Fairport, haven't even heard of Rising for the Moon, which she also appeared on, and which contains the greatest songs she ever wrote, like "One more Chance". Oh well, keep shouting for the only albums you have tried - it's your loss, those amazing albums that came later ♥
