"Fans of the instrumental side of Fairport Convention should dig this pair of recordings by their longtime fiddler, Dave Swarbrick. A bunch of his Fairport buddies, Richard Thompson among them, join him on this mostly-instrumental outing... Both albums were recorded at the same time in 1981, but released separately for whatever reason. It's nice stuff, though surprisingly heavy on standard-issue reels and such. For my personal tastes, there are too few numbers that really moved me (I tend to like aires and more melodically evocative tunes...) but I'm sure fans of fiddling in general and Fairport in particular will find plenty to enjoy here. A couple of songs do include vocals -- a rare opportunity to hear Swarbrick step up to take the mic..."
