Fairport Convention - Angel Delight (1993) Retail CD
I have to say, I`ve never felt that Dave Swarbrick was singing with a cod Irish accent. It sounds English to me. Anyway, not being of a xenophobic persuasion, myself, I don`t have a problem with Swarbrick`s singing accent, although I do think his voice is a bit too high-pitched at times, bordering on the squeaky.Angel Delight is easily the most entertaining of the early Seventies FC albums and it`s also the most consistent and cohesive. Although I would agree with some reviewers that subsequent FC albums were comparatively weak, I think it would be a bit extreme, not to mention mean-spiritedmore…, to write them off altogether. There are some outstanding tracks to be found on the albums "Rosie", "Nine", "Fairport Convention Live", "Rising For The Moon", and yes!, even "Babbacombe Lee", amid the more mediocre material. "Tipplers Tales" and "Bonny Bunch of Roses", released in 1977 and `78 after Simon Nicol had rejoined FC, are both excellent, and a reliable source informs me that these two albums are due for reissue in the not too distant future. Anyway, yes, I highly recommend Angel Delight. Incidentally, I prefer it to the oft-lauded "seminal" Liege And Lief, which sounds a bit wishy-washy and unsure of itself as a *folk*-rock album. But, by the time of (Full House and)Angel Delight, the new lineup(s) had pulled out all the stops and weren`t afraid to be a real folk-rock band, with the violin and mandolin playing coming to the fore, along with a more robust rhythm section and the more appropriate male vocals.
