One of the stronger Fairport lineups following on from the so-called classic period, this album never received the recognition it deserved nor reached the audiience it ought to have.
Recorded in 1975, the album was overshadowed by the growing number of groups and singer-songwriters in the UK. Steeleye Span had achieved chart success and groups like Prelude were more commercially successful
While Fairport Convention had attracted much attention to the return of Sandy Denny to the fold along with two other members of Fotheringay, they had a montain to climb to regain their position at the top of the British folk rock tree. With a wide variety of songs in the best of the Fairport tradition and a long lineage of musicianship of the bands members, the album failed to achieve the commercial success which had eluded them for over four years and also failed to significantly increase the band's audience. The album also flopped in the States which did not help morale and subsequently the band split before resuming business as Fairport.
If I had to select my favourite I would go for the title track but I like them all. It is a good, solid album which I can play over and over, not just because of Sandy Denny's wonderful voice but just to hear those musicians play so well.
When is the Box set going to be released over here?
Another album to include the singing talents of Alexandra Denny is Live Convention.

I have to say that though this is a somewhat uneven recording, it's high points are incredibly good. One More Chance is one of Sandy Denny's signature songs. The title track is also wonderfull. There seem to be two camps of Fairport fans: Those who only seem to care for their reworkings of traditional material and those who never got over their poppier side. I find there is great listening in both, but I always had and will have a preference for their work with Sandy Denny, one of the best female singers if not the best female folk singer of all time. It was she who first brought the traditional songs into the fold, but being the restless spirit that she was, wanted to keep moving with writing her own songs and interpreting the songs of others. Dylan in particular. A great balance of their songs and reworked jigs and trad material can be found on Live Convention, which was released just prior to this. That, along with this recording, is one that will always be on my playlist along with Liege And Lief

Fairport Convention started out as an organized group of diverse souls who miraculously came together in late '67 before recruiting Judy Dyble as one of their main singers. They started out covering American Underground music from Leonard Cohen to the Blues Project. Their original material was mainly supplied by guitarist Richard Thompson and vocalist Iain Matthews. The result was nothing short of brilliant. Not only was Thompson already a force to be taken extremely seriously, the vocal prowess of Matthews and Dyble on the quieter numbers exceeded those of most of their contemporaries. Ms. Dyble made her exit after the first album, and at the behest of one of the members, why not try Sandy Denny? That was like adding George Harrison to the Beatles! Not only was Sandy a musician in the true sense of the word, but the best vocalist pop music had to offer. During the following year, three albums were recorded with Sandy's inimitable vocals. Drawing on inspiration from Bob Dylan and The Byrds, they came up with a definitive folk-rock sound and so became Britain's forefront band in that genre. Whereas, in the beginning, they were the "U.K. Jefferson Airplane", now they stood apart as the trailblazers of British Folk. That, too, proved temporal as Fairport appeared to drift from album-to-album after Sandy and Ashley Hutchings departure in 1970. They relied mainly on the writing of Richard Thompson and Dave Swarbrick. The two individuals wrote some of their most memorable tunes from the Full House album to Rosie, all of which have merits of their own. Fairport Nine, saw a more "Fotheringay" like lineup with Jerry Donahue and Trevor Lucas assuming co-leadership roles. The only thing missing was Sandy.Read more ›

When Sandy Denny returned to Fairport Convention, the band made one last bid for stardom. Super-producer Glyn Johns (the Who, Clapton, Eagles) was brought in. And the result was a surprisingly tepid album.

Johns seems to have been going for a singer-songwriting feel. The instruments are muted, with the fantastic musicianship of guitarist Jerry Donahue and fiddler Dave Swarbrick kept under wraps, and the bass and drums playing somewhere off in the distance. Nothing will distract the listener from the underlying songs! The problem is that those songs aren't good enough to carry the burden. Sandy contributes five songs that all have strong lyrics matched with lackluster music, and she sings them with a halfhearted effort. There's just enough going on to suggest that songs like "Dawn" and Trevor Lucas's "Iron Lion" could have been memorable with livelier arrangements and production. Lucas does provide his best Fairport moment with "Restless".

The album closes with "One More Chance", an 8-minute Sandy opus that is everything the rest of the album is not. Sandy finally raises her voice and sings like SANDY DENNY. The verse and chorus both have great melodies. And then...Donahue and Swarbrick both soar in an extended instrumental. This song is one of the all-time Fairport Convention highlights. If the same approach had been used throughout the album, "Rising for the Moon" might be remembered with "Liege & Leaf" and "What We Did on Our Holidays". Instead, it's an album best suited for late at night with a glass of wine. It's background music for melancholy, not an album that commands your full attention.

(1=poor 2=mediocre 3=pretty good 4=very good 5=phenomenal)
