  • Arranger: Fairport Convention.
  • The transitional album before Fairport Convention invented folk rock with Liege And Lief, on this album they stretch out on longer numbers and introduce Dave Swarbrick, who plays some particularly fine fiddle on the lengthy 'A Sailor's Life'. Richard Thompson continued to mature with 'Genesis Hall' and 'Cajun Woman'. Equally impressive is Sandy's beautiful voice on her stellar composition 'Who Knows Where Time Goes'. Dylan abounds with three songs and 'Percy's Song' is a highlight. To round it up, a UK hit single, shock horror, with Dylan's 'Si Tu Dois Partir'. Also a bold move for a little-known band was not having their name on the album sleeve.
Professional Reviews
Q (6/00, p.63) - Ranked #79 in Q's "100 Greatest British Albums" - "...Catches them inching ever further from contemporary to more traditional fare....And if you're looking for the quintessential English female voice, how about Sandy Denny?..."

Uncut (5/03, p.118) - 5 stars out of 5 - "...[A] revelation, unique from its cover sleeve to its streamlining of folk roots with electric rock..."
