    Must read for die hard Fairport fans. Members of Fairport Convention talk about their albums/songs and a lot of anecdotes and tales from the band’s history and this book features lovely illustrations. Edited by Nigel Schofield. Still, some criticism (hey, I’m Dutch!): the book could be better structured and recent years are bogged down in too much superficiality. Often the humor is nice but dullness is lurking.

But what is this criticism worth if you have their music? Nothing. Let me also be clear about the craftsmanship of these gentlemen: they are all virtuosos. I started to read this book on the occasion of the death of Dave Swarbrick. His voice and brilliant violin playing have put an indelible mark on my life. And not just for me. So listen and read.

    Excellent, factual biography of the band, with salient quotes from everyone. Incredibly well-researched. Schofield's personal anecdotes make it a more interesting read, as does his dissection of Fairport's music in the final chapter.
