CD Reviews

Slightly overrated, but quite bold nonetheless!

"Unhalfbricking, Fairport's third album, is historically important because it includes the playing of future member Dave Swarbrick as well as the first electric-folk epic of all time: "A Sailor's Life." It also includes the quintessential Sandy Denny composition "Who Knows Where the Time Goes?" and a fine Richard Thompson composition called "Genesis Hall," written about his father's experiences as a policeman. Although the three aforementioned songs display Fairport at its best, the remaining tracks, including the hit version of Dylan's "If You Gotta Go, Go Now" sung in French, are somewhat unremarkable. The band does not play as tightly as usual, and, as a result, a few of the songs drag, and/or have a novelty feel to them. Still, this album is where British folk-rock truly began, and it does contain some fine music. This remastered edition has beautiful sound, and is certainly worth picking up,but I might recommend seeking out Liege & Lief or Full House first."
