You're Gonna Need My Help

[McKinley Morganfield (Muddy Waters)]

Fairport Convention recorded You're Gonna Need My Help on 4 February 1969 in BBC Studio 1, 201 Piccadilly, for “Symonds on Sunday”; it was broadcast on 9 February 1969. It was produced by Keith Stewart. The musicians are Sandy Denny, vocal; Ian Matthews, vocal; Richard Thompson, slide guitar; Simon Nicol, guitar; Ashley Hutchings, bass guitar; and Martin Lamble, drums.

The track was included in the original Heyday cassette, but was left off the CD. It eventually saw CD release in 1994 on Ashley Hutchings' The Guv'nor Vol 1 and in 2003 as bonus track of the What We Did on Our Holidays CD reissue.

A slightly earlier version from the “Radio One Club” on 6 January 1969 can be found on From Past Archives.
