descriptionThe fourth album from the Fairport Convention, originally released in 1970, is considered by many to be the paramount of British folk-rock. After three solid albums of folk-rock that only hinted at their British roots, Liege & Lief is the first Fairport record to fully and completely embrace their home country. They roll through no less than four traditional British folk songs including an incredible reading of "Tam Lin" along with quality originals that pay tribute to and expand on their rich tradition. This is the last Fairport Convention record to feature core members Sandy Denny and Ashley Hutchings, and though it is decidedly British it is an absolute classic of electric folk-rock of any variety.
