This double-CD set records the festival that marked Fairport Convention's 35th anniversary. With contributions from surviving members and ex-members, the band took the opportunity to revisit many of the highlights of its back catalog. Judy Dyble, who preceded the late Sandy Denny as the band's singer, performs "One Sure Thing," Ian Matthews, who went on to a successful career of his own after his Fairport apprenticeship, sings "Time Will Show the Wiser," and the similarly well-fixed Richard Thompson takes over the lead vocal on "Jack O' Diamonds." Thompson's touching and strangely prophetic "Meet on the Ledge" provides an appropriate closer to this emotional rollercoaster of a set.
