Fairport convention


Fairport Convention is often credited with being the first English band. Formed in 1967, Fairport rapidly developed from playing cover versions of American 'west coast' music to an individual style which melded music with English tunes and songs. Like their peers The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield and Jefferson Airplane they were blessed with several considerable individual talents and produced music that -at least initially- was eclectic, as well as exploratory. This side of the band may best be heard on Heyday, a collection of tracks broadcast by the BBC.
