Fairport Convention: Live At The BBC (1 & 2)

There is no need for me to say how I love Fairport's family -I have already dedicated some posts both to Richard Thompson and to Sandy Denny in the past- so there won't be any suprise if I upload this magnificent boxset, "Fairport Convention Live At The BBC". In these first 2 discs you'll find some songs already released in "Heyday", like one of my favourite FC's covers, Leonard Cohen's Suzanne, but not only.
I alway think that their best days are the ones of their very first LP's and their best songs are the ones sung by Sandy Denny, yet these performances are so beautiful, this british folk rock IS so beautiful that I almost forget that.

Next: Cd 3 & 4.

For subcomandante marcos: you really do? Could you please (please!)upload it and give me the link? I don't want to give you a hard time but that would be just great.

Are these boots or legit releases? I've got some fair sounding boots of some, maybe all of this. I'm gonna download them tomorrow (hope they're still up - I find Fairport's "disappear" very quickly). Somedays all I want to do is drift away on those sweet voices and guitars forever, go to wherever this Fairport Convention is and never come back. Thanks!

(it's the same link you find in the post).

And I abolutely agree with you.
