1 stars A first review of one of my favorite bands from the 60's and 70's. So let's begin with my least favorite record of them. The last on the island record label. After the polished but good 'Rising for the moon' record, the band fell apart. What was left of them, made this record together with a bunch of guest musicians. Under the name Fairport. I can accept that this isn't really prog anymore. But even without that there are not much good songs on this record. the two traditionals are reasonable. 'When first into this country' has a nice melody, and the same can be said of the instrumental 'The frog up the pump'. Although they have done a lot better instrumentals. Well, and the rest is very very poor. A funk/folk feel in 'Cropredy capers'. A try at Sandy's song '(Take away the load)'. Not much succesful. And the rest are songs which you almost have forgotten after you have heard them. I am aware that this is a transitional record. And the follow up 'Bonny bunch of roses' is much better of quality. I doubt between one or two stars. But with only two songs who are only just a very little better then the rest, i cannot give this record a higher rating than only one star
