Meet on the Ledge: The Classic Years (1967-1975)
Fairport Convention
Island 564 687-2 (2 CD, USA, August 1999)

This 2 CD set is an overview of the first eight Fairport Convention years which I prefer to the similar new CD What We Did On Our Holidays: An Introduction to Fairport Convention as this 2 CD set has more bang for the buck and offers some rare and unreleased tracks. But anyway, both albums are fine companions to the new Sandy Denny collection Listen Listen: An Introduction to Sandy Denny.

The sleeve notes are by Patrick Humphries.
