In the autumn, the hifi in my head always plays a lot of Fairport Convention. Just ran across a video of the band doing a French TV session in 1968, before Sandy Denny arrived (Judy Dyble was the female voice, but appears here on recorder), and also before original drummer Martin Lamble was killed in a band bus accident. The sound’s different, too, and explains why Fairport was once constantly compared to the early Jefferson Airplane. An impossibly young Richard Thompson is probably the star of this performance of the highly appropriate Daylight Video tune “Morning Glory.”
