Glady's Leap, the first album of the reunited Fairport Convention is quite a good but not complete outing by guitarist Simon Nicol, bassist Dave Pegg and drummer Dave Mattacks, with only fiddler Dave Swarbrick not returning. Between the group disbanding in 1979 and this reunion album in 1985, Pegg picked up a lucrative job recording and touring with Jethro Tull but never gave up on the idea that Fairport's business as music makers was unfinished. And this album proves him right.

On this album, it's legendary folk artist Ralph McTell who rises to the formidable challenge of writing with the band who practically invented British folk-rock; he ends up co-writing not one, but two genuine Fairport Convention classics, "The Hiring Fair" and "Wat Tyler. Both these terrific story songs sound as authentically old English as any of the band's traditional numbers, and are sung and played with flair and passion.

Fairport Convention is Fairport Convention's debut album. The band formed in 1967, with the original line-up consisting of Richard Thompson (guitar); Simon Nicol (guitar); Ashley Tyger Hutchings (bass); and Sean Frater (drums), who was replaced after their first gig by Martin Lamble
