FAIRPORT CONVENTION: CROPREDY '98
Surprisingly, Strawbs had never performed at Fairport Convention's massively successful annual festival (held each year at Cropredy in Oxfordshire) until 2007. In 1998 however, Dave Cousins was invited as a special guest to perform with Fairport (and with John "Rabbit" Bundrick on piano and Maart Allcock on Hammond organ). Dave sang and played two songs with Fairport: "Lay Down" and then the obvious choice for Fairport fans, "Ringing Down The Years", his tribute to the late Sandy Denny. The latter is included on this album. There's also a Chris While version of "Who Knows Where The Time Goes", and a bonus Dave Mattacks on drums studio track "Castle Rock".
