Re-Up: Fairport Convention - Live At The BBC (4 Discs)

Many asked for it and so here it is: the re-up of Fairport Convention's Live at the BBC Box Set.
Here is what I wrote some months ago when I firsted posted it:

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.
Among my favourite pieces of music the 10 minutes-long The Bonny Bunch Of Roses (but there are so many...).

Disc 1
Disc 2
Disc 3
Disc 4

Thanks a million for your re-up!!!!
I already had their extended "Heyday" discs but this one has so much more.
I definitely agree that Fairport Convention lost some of their magic after Sandy Denny left for the first time in 1970, the rest of their output is somewhat average.

Do you happen to have last year's deluxe edition of "Liege & Lief" and would even be so kind to share it as well?
I'm actually only looking for the second disc.
I already own this album in three different versions so I can't spend anymore money on this one again.

I could offer you uploads of most albums from their catalogue or from Sandy Denny in return (if you're interested).

Thanks again,
