    @activewaste Well said. Richard Thompson, Sandy Denny and Ashley Hutchings were all vital members of the group and brought a lot to the table, but they're like Yes or King Crimson or The Fall in that despite all the lineup changes they've endured they've maintained a pretty consistently high level of quality throughout their lifespan. Babbacombe Lee and Tipplers Tales are two of their best, IMO, and don't feature any of the three. Well, Sandy Denny sings on one song on the former, but that's it. But yeah, you're missing out on tons and tons of good/great albums if you give up on 'em after Full House.

    If you stopped at Full House you are really missing out, Angel Delight is stunning.

    May I just say, that most here are missing out, I only have one Sandy Denny album among my top 10 albums. The first 5 albums are great, but there are many later greats as well, Expletive Delighted, Angel Delight, Tippler's Tales, Jewel in the Crown, they are amazing albums, give thm a try. And I suspect all those loving Sandy Denny in Fairport, haven't even heard of Rising for the Moon, which she also appeared on, and which contains the greatest songs she ever wrote, like "One more Chance". Oh well, keep shouting for the only albums you have tried - it's your loss, those amazing albums that came later ♥

    Sandy Denny es una de las voces más sobresalientes del folk rock de todos los tiempos y lugares. La magia sonora que su voz clarísima y poderosa desvela a cada nota que canta es irrepetible y única. Proporciona sensaciones gratas de felicidad desconocida. "Who knows were the time goes" es uno de los temas más bellos y poéticos de la historia del rock.

    I'd say their work with Denny is better than without but I don't know how much she had to do with it. I think they simply had the best songwriting on those albums. She is a great singer but personally I don't think she made the band.

    Deleted a shout that was needlessly harsh. The point is, both 'the band' and Denny benefited from their collaboration - both were better together than apart. FC released fine albums both pre and post Denny... arguably superior ones to What We Did On Our Holidays. Denny? I don't see the brilliance that's so often shouted about, other than for the times she happens to be performing with FC. I am basing this somewhat dour assessment solely on the albums Fotheringay and Sandy. If there are other albums significantly different from these two I'd like to hear of them.

    Without Sandy Denny's mellifluous melancholic vocals Fairport Convention would be merely good.

    Enjoyed listening to the Fairport Convention song, "Time Shall Show the Wiser." Reminds me of days past when musicians sang songs from the heart. Wish I could be in London to see them play ..... Peace
