Disco che mi piace ma meno di "Unhalfbricking".Manca qui, rispetto al disco precedente, quel tocco di influenza americana che, per me, rendeva la musica dei Fairport di "Unhalfbricking" - come dire? - più universale.

I had a preconception of this group and it was wrong. Strong female vocals and dynamic instrumentation. I liked it.

Classic album from Fairport Convention. Liege and lief, is a lovely record full of traditional folk songs, beautifully played and sung. Great stuff from a great band.

A nice album perhaps missing a great song. The middle of the album reaches its quality with The Deserter almost achieving greatness. But there's also something that makes parts of the songs redundant.

Sandy Denny is possibly the best ever singer in folk music, accompanied by one of the best folk guitarists in Richard Thompson. The rest of the band are also extremely talented, creating a band overall with talent among the greatest groups. A rich tradition of English folk to draw from give them classics like Matty Groves, and some originals such as Who knows where the time goes, makes this a sublime album.
