Fairport Convention (1st LP)
Released: Jan 1968
Label: Universal Motown Records Group
England's Fairport Convention were wielding West Coast harmonies long before Ireland's the Thrills. Released in 1968, FC's debut album owes more to the Byrds than Pentangle, with soaring harmonies and psychedelic guitars. Recorded pre-Sandy Denny, Judy Dyble sang like a siren and then left to form Trader Horne.
