Fairport Convention: Unhalfbricking

Love love love those early Fairport records, from the Denny/Thompson years. Also a good album if (like me) you like Dylan's songwriting but not his voice.

Cheers. I have just introduced a Polish friend of mine to Fairport Convention [Unhalfbricking] and he is transfixed by Denny's voice.

Yes, I prefer Vol. 2 to Vol. 1 by a long way. Guess what? Vol. 2 is scheduled for a re-listen very soon  ;D

Heh. Tempting to reply: "pornography is the best cure". But actually I think Disintegration is the best Cure.

To me, for the best Cure, both Pornography and Disintegration are just a tad over The Top.
They can Cure me for Seventeen Seconds, no doubt, but I need something to sink in a bit more... unlike The Head On The Door.
Which means that (no surprise) I'm with Premont here. Faith is the best Cure.
And, for 'Teenage Kicks' :P, I even like to be cured by Thee Imaginary Boys. :-[  ;)

The Healing Game came out in originally 1997, now Morrison's released a Deluxe Edition.  DE has two discs of alternate versions, some great blues covers, and live material: all excellent.
