What We Did on Our Holidays - An Introduction to Fairport Convention (Island IMCD 263)

What We Did on Our Holidays - An Introduction to Fairport Convention
Fairport Convention
Island Records IMCD 263 (CD, UK, November 1999)

This is the new Fairport compilation in the Island Records' “An Introduction to” series. It has 16 tracks taken from the Fairport album up to Rising For the Moon, so it's a good companion to the new Sandy Denny collection Listen Listen - An Introduction to Sandy Denny.

Even though all tracks are of excellent quality, I prefer the new 2 CD Fairport compilation Meet on the Ledge - The Classic Years 1967-1975 which has more bang for the buck and offers some rare and unreleased tracks.

The sleeve notes are by Patrick Humphries.
