Gottle O' Geer - Swarb's, Peggy's and Bruce's contractual obligation. Have at it. A quick and easy post. I'll be back after the holidays, hopefully. Stay safe. Chemically altered , Apr 6, Rising For The Moon It is well known that this record comprises a handful of sparkling Sandy Denny masterpieces and then some absolute filler from the other band members.
Where was the quality control? It's a very polished record, very professional sounding, thanks to the production of Glyn "I don't care what anyone thinks of me" Johns, who enforced strict discipline on the laid back, druggy, beer swilling Fairports.
The title track is wonderful, and is my joint favourite of the LP, with strong performances from the guitar, fiddle and of course, Sandy's voice. Next, " Restless ", oh no - Trevor again weary of being on the road. That writer, Swarb, is on next, singing the dreadful " Let It Go ", his voice really straining. I'd sooner hear "Let It Go" from "Frozen"!
Trev's back for the start of side 2, with another boring song about being on the road As the lyric "was it too late It is much too long a 7 minutes, and needs reworking so that we have a thing of beauty by continuing the song that it was in the first two minutes.
After the original LP tracks, there are a few extras, all good, starting with " White Dress ", the live version performed on London Weekend Television, a YouTube clip of which I posted previously post Watching this clip, I marvel at what great musicians Sandy and Fairport were.
It's hard to believe they are not miming, so perfect is the performance. The YouTube clip cuts short, sadly, but the CD has the full length audio version. The notes say that this mysterious recording was "discovered in the LWT archive by the author Philip Ward". Where is the rest of it Phil???? There is a second CD in the set, which has a live concert of the "Rising" line-up live at the Troubador not to be confused with the other Fairport LA Troubador album, which is by the Full House line up.
This is a better performance than "Fairport Live Convention", and Sandy sounds much more cheerful and involved. I must steel myself now for "Gottle o' Geer" All of my troubles are none of your cares! Rising For The Moon. Full House Bonus Track Edition.
