Review

Fairport Convention split in half in December 1975, with Sandy Denny, Trevor Lucas, and Jerry Donahue leaving; the remaining trio of Dave Swarbrick, Dave Pegg, and Bruce Rowland then made this contractual obligation album, which was credited to "Fairport Featuring Dave Swarbrick." As you might expect, it's fairly listless. ~ William Ruhlmann
