1. Product Details

Limited 180gm vinyl LP pressing. Liege & Lief is the fourth album by the English folk rock band Fairport Convention. It is the third and final album the group released in the UK in 1969 all of which prominently feature Sandy Denny as lead female vocalist. Denny did not appear on the groups 1968 debut album. It is also the very first Fairport album on which all songs have either been adapted freely from traditional British and Celtic folk material for example Matty Groves Tam Lin or else are original compositions such as Come All Ye Crazy Man Michael written and performed in a similar style. By introducing songs of this genre into the groups repertoire Denny who had previously sung and recorded traditional folk songs as a solo artist was instrumental in this transformation. Although Denny quit the band even before the albums release Fairport Convention has continued to the present day to make music almost exclusively within the traditional British folk music idiom and are still most strongly associated with it.
