Now to the final paragraph of David Suff’s November 2006 notes:
“By the mid-1980s Fairport Convention had reconvened and have continued to add album after album to their illustrious catalogue. Simon Nicol the longest serving founder member has spoken often in recent years of Fairport Convention being so much more than its members at any onetime [sic]. He imagines that the group might continue into the future, with generation succeeding generation like a factory brass band. Whilst the group continues, and long may they thrive, their reputation is founded on the remarkable series of albums they recorded for Island Records between 1968 and 1976.
David Suff, November 2006”.
You will be pleased to learn that Simon Nicol also did some notes for the CD liner, which are shorter and keep to the the topic. To these we next turn.
