It is their second album to feature Trevor Lucas and Jerry Donahue, and features no original members of Fairport Convention. Polly on the Shore was re-recorded by the 21st-century lineup of Fairport Convention featuring only Dave Pegg from the Nine-era lineup for their album Sense of Occasion in 2007, with Simon Nicol on lead vocals. The same lineup later re-recorded The. Nine - Fairport Convention. Лента с персональными рекомендациями и музыкальными новинками, радио, подборки на любой вкус, удобное управление своей коллекцией. Fairport Convention's ninth album is their most uneven. The group shows extraordinary virtuosity and musical instincts on folk-based tracks such as The Hexamshire Lass and The Brilliancy Medley & Cherokee Shuffle which features some of the best mandolin playing you're ever likely to hear from an English band, but on numbers like Polly on the Shore and To Althea From Prison, where the band supplies the music to.

Skip to YouTube Studio album by Fairport Convention Released October 1973 Recorded July August, 1972 at Sound. In this, the ninth album from 70's folk heroes Fairport Convention, Swarb and the lads serve up yet another helping of rollicking tunes. This is a record jam packed with foot taping, hummable tunes that get stuck in your head for ages after listening. I have always regarded 'Nine' as being among the best Fairport albums, representing the brief flowering of the post NicolThompson band before the return of Sandy Denny changed the musical direction again. The previous album 'Rosie' was something of a stopgap but had marked the arrival of Trevor Lucas and Jerry Donahue, both former members of Sandy's band Fotheringay, and on 'Nine' they make major contributions
