Review: "50:50 @ 50" - Fairport Convention

The title is intended to cover all the bases: the band is 50 years old and the album is equally split live/recorded songs. Though that doesnít truly reflect that Fairport Convention are much more likely to be seen on a stage rather than a recording studio these days with two nationwide tours and a festival every year.

The main interest is on the new material, as the live recordings, good as they are, wonít be totally unfamiliar to Fairport devotees. However, there arenít going to be many people who will tire of this beautiful version of Portmeirion, while Robert Plantís on lead vocals on Jesus on the Mainline just add that little bit of a sparkle to a reliable crowd-pleaser. And talking of crowd pleasers, thereís a rollicking version of The Naked Highwayman.
