2 stars This albums sounds like Jefferson Airplane!!!! Fairport newcomers will not find the band's classic sound here. This is a blend of San Francisco psychedelia, late Sixties Brittish rock with a very few touches of folk. Judy Dyble is a good singer, but Sandy Denny, who replaced her shortly after this album, is far better. "Time Will Show the Wiser", "It's Alright Ma, It's Only Witchcraft" (a joke on Dylan? Who knows?) and "Chelsea Morning" are the highlights, and Richard Thompson's fans will probably love his crazy soloing at "Reno Nevada" (which is far better than "Heyday"'s version), but this album do not shows how wonderful Fairport Convention was.
