Thread Name: Fairport on BBC4 Tonight
Subject: RE: Fairport on BBC4 Tonight
i assumed that richard thompson song about 'geordie' was about sting -not mark knopfler. RT can do very little wrong in my eyes -but i felt that song was unnecessary and not very good.
good to read that some folk are not too impressed with leige and lief. i had always thought i must be missing something that everyone else could see. it's ok - quite good- but far from the best folk album of all. better than blood on the tracks? (is that folk?) blue? handful of earth?
RT had the real talent within fairports and when he left it was like csn without y. or the french national side since zidane retired.
