What We Did on Our Holidays released as Fairport Convention in the United States is the second album by British band Fairport Convention, released in 1969. It was their first album to feature singer-songwriter Sandy Denny. The album also showed a move towards the folk rock for which the band became noted, including tracks later to become perennial favourites such as Fotheringay and the song traditionally used to close live concerts, Meet on the Ledge. Confusingly, What We Did on Our Holidays was titled Fairport Convention in its initial U. release, with a different cover from the U.

Fairport Convention - 'The Lord Is In This Place, How Dreadful Is This Place' . 1969 was the year of Fairport Convention's second, third and fourth studio albums, of which we're reDiscovering What We Did On Our Holidays. It was the first Fairport album to feature Sandy Dennys unforgettable vocals and her addition to their songwriting talent pool. Published on. January 30, 2020. Fairport Convention are commonly considered to be the first British folk-rock group, which is essentially true even if it doesn't really count for much. Releasing their self-titled debut in 1967, they drew heavily the Byrds, Joni Mitchell, Jefferson Airplane, and especially Bob Dylan, but they weren't merely aping an American trend. Righting two wrongs at once, Water Records has reissued the band's second and third albums, What We Did on Our Holidays and Unhalfbricking, both from 1969, and both previously unavailable in America. Legendary producer Joe Boyd oversaw both records, lending them a live sound that complements the musicians' youthful vigor. Fairport Convention. SingerSongwriter Name Fairport Convention.
