REVIEW: Fairport by Fairport 4/5
2/3/2013 (updated 2/3/2013)

Fairport by Fairport: The story of Fairport Convention, told in their own words, is full of detail and interesting anecdotes.

Richard Thompson describes Fairport Convention as a "historically important band". They are still going strong and get a fine tribute in an intimate and thorough memoir of the band, told through the stories of the people involved.

The rise of Sandy Denny is dealt with in revealing detail and the book does not shy away from the rows, splits and the battle for survival that has been intrinsic to a band which has managed to survive for 45 years.
