Another good album from this great sounding band.
Even though the compositions aren't mindblowing, they are uniquely honest and both Denny's vocals and the instrumental are very well crafted.

Cosa si può dire di un gruppo che, qui, riesce a migliorare Bob Dylan ?

Since buying this on vinyl several years ago (more than 15) I have only listened to it a couple of times. The cover doesn't do much for me and has tended to put me off pulling it out of my vast vinyl collection more regularly, bit like books and covers, although i shouldn't judge a book by... After getting past the album cover I find the album a good listen, in fact had forgotten some great tracks like 'A Sailors Life' which has a more psychedelic edge than folk. Personally I prefer the more psychedelic harder sound of Jefferson Airpalne when thinking about female vocal led bands from the sixties.

One of the best albums from the classic Fairport Convention line up. Beautiful songs and textures, with, genesis hall, a sailor's life, and off course, who knows where the time goes, all great. The Dylan covers are fine too. Lovely stuff.

Sandy Denny is, in my opinion, the greatest female singer / songwriter Britain has ever produced, though, if you think about it, the competition list is quite short. 'Who Knows Where the time Goes' is on this, so that would be reason enough by itself to include this album, but it also includes two great originals by Richard Thompson and some inspired Dylan covers.

Fairport Convention formed in 1967, and are still playing today. There have been many personnel changes, which has hampered their popularity and consistency (only one original member remains today). Unhalfbricking is their 3rd album, feautiring guitarist Richard Thompson, singer Sandy Denny, and fiddler Dave Swarbrick, who would be the main players in their next and greatest album, Liege And Leaf.

Unhalfbricking features 2 Thompson songs, 2 Denny songs, a traditional tune, and 3 by Bob Dylan, whom the group became enamored with after hearing the unreleased Basement Tapes. "Si Tu Dois Partir" is Dylan's "If You Gotta Go" sung in French. The album is a classic without a single weak track as Fairport were becoming England's greatest folk-rock band. You can't lose with this one.
