A double-LP compilation, History of Fairport Convention is a good selection of the better songs recorded by the group from What We Did on Our Holidays through Babbacombe Lee, including "Sailor's Life," "Who Knows Where the Time Goes," "Meet on the Ledge," "Si Tu Dois Partir," "Matty Groves," "Sloth," and "Angel Delight." It's no substitute for any of the albums up to and including Full House, but it's adequate for someone on a limited budget. As with most Fairport albums, the liner notes are virtually non-existent.
