Meet on the Ledge - The Classic Years (1967-1975)
Island 564 687-2 (2 CD, August 1999)

This 2 CD set is most certainly the most brilliant overview of any band, but then again we are rather biased here, so any objectivity tends to go out of the window, where Fairport is concerned. The double set covers the first eight Fairport Convention years,and includes tracks
(all of which are listed below) from
Fairport Convention,
What We Did On Our Holidays, Unhalfbricking
Liege and Lief, Full House,
Angel Delight, Babbacombe Lee.Rosie, Nine,
and Rising For The Moon
For those of you out there who have never been introducted to Fairport, this album is the perfect introduction,
so......what are you waiting for?
