Notes and Things

[Sandy Denny, Ashley Hutchings]

The Liege & Lief lineup 2 [click for larger image]

Ashley: "We were there [at Farley Chamberlayne] for about 8 weeks. It was a very remarkable group. I'd say it's maturity was unmatched. Because we lived in that house all kinds of combinations were possible. And I wouldn't separate Sandy and Richard, everyone contributed to Liege and Lief sounding the way it did, Swarb, Mattacks...and Simon was such an important steadying influence. I remember it being a great shock to people when we appeared for that classic Royal Festival Hall concert where Nick Drake supported us and Dave played a solid electric fiddle for the first time and it blew people apart."

Liege And Lief was launched with a sell-out concert in London's Royal Festival Hall late in 1969. Dave Swarbrick had made a huge contribution to the project and he now joined Fairport full-time.

Come All Ye

Come all ye rolling minstrels,
And together we will try
To rouse the spirit of the air
And move the rolling sky.
 
Those that dance will start to dance
And those who don't will sway
In time to this our merry tune
That we play for you today
 
So come all ye rolling minstrels
And together we will try
To rouse the spirit of the air
And move the rolling sky
 
Our fiddler, he just loves to play
And that's why he plays so good.
And now he plays a violin
Made out of solid wood.
 
So come all ye rolling minstrels
And together we will try
To rouse the spirit of the air
And move the rolling sky
 
Possessor of the magic touch,
But no magician, he
Will play for you some magic notes
Instead as you will see.
 
So come all ye rolling minstrels
And together we will try
To rouse the spirit of the air
And move the rolling sky.
 
The sound of beating on the drums
From behind you hear,
And to the rhythm of guitar
We hope you'll lend an ear.
 
So come all ye rolling minstrels
And together we will try
To rouse the spirit of the air
And move the rolling sky
 
Well, the man who plays the bass does make
Those low notes that you hear.
And the high notes come from you and me
For we will sing so clear
 
So come all ye rolling minstrels
And together we will try
To rouse the spirit of the air
And move the rolling sky.
