Fairport Convention

N.N. 92-FC-12-01 (CD, Italy, March 1992)

This Italian produced bootleg CD is technically and legally a bootleg, but because of the law in both Italy and the rest of the EU in 1993, it was—briefly—publicly advertised for sale through main dealers (i.e. Terrapin Trucking), hence its quasi-official status.

The CD cover picture is a photo from the BBC Top of the Pops presentation of Si Tu Dois Partir on August 14, 1969.
