What the Byrds were to America, Fairport Convention is to the UK--that is, an ever-changing unit that combines rock & roll with the traditional folk music of their homeland. As with the Byrds, several luminaries emerged from Fairport, not the least of which being Richard Thompson and the late Sandy Denny. CLOSE TO THE WIND collects tracks from the band's THE FIVE SEASONS and RED AND GOLD albums. As a bonus, there's a "new" live performance of the title track.
