That's what's always worried me about going to see Fairport. I love the late sixties/early seventies stuff, but fear a) poor quality new material and b) badly done versions of old classics.

They don't do the old classics badly IMHO -- but obviously if you want to hear Sandy Denny singing the songs then there's no point going to the live shows!

The new material on "The Wood and the Wire" was pretty good, I thought, but they didn't play much of that this time. "XXXV" kinda passed me by but I see now that it includes "The Crowd" by Anna Ryder (or annA rydeR as she insists on spelling it), which they did on Sunday (with guest vocals from Anna) and it was rubbish.
