Fairport Convention - Unhalfbricking (1990) Retail CD
Unhalfbricking marked a turning-point for Fairport Convention and is a definitive amalgam of their influences. The three Bob Dylan songs featured look to their past as a band predominantly influenced by American folk, rock & roll and singer-songwriters such as Joni Mitchell and Dylan himself. "Si Tu Dois Partir", a French-language version of Dylan's "If You Gotta Go Go Now", was their only hit single and their shared singing on a rave-up version of "Million Dollar Bash" provides a fitting finale to the album. Sandy Denny and Richard Thompson were quite possibly the best female vocalist and bestmore… guitarist the UK has ever produced, but at this stage they were also budding songwriters of extraordinary potency. They each contributed two songs, showcasing a lyrical and musical vision beyond their years. Thompson's spellbinding "Genesis Hall" opens the album, his "Cajun Woman" provides a raunchy diversion into authentically swampy music. Denny contributes "Autopsy" and "Who Knows Where The Time Goes"; the first is an early jazz-influenced number, the second one of the most stunning songs she ever wrote. The final part of the jigsaw is the 11-minute "A Sailor's Life", representing the future of the band. A folk song that Sandy knew, they transmuted it to stunning effect, showcasing Thompson's guitar playing alongside the searing violin of eclectic folkie Dave Swarbrick in a long electric workout to close the tune. Swarbrick enjoyed the result so much that he joined the band. An authentically timeless album and quite possibly the place to start (though not to stop) if you have never before heard any Fairport Convention. --James Swift
