Bit of a dash today, since we’re finishing up the end-of-year issue, Top 50 Albums Of 2010 and all. Some good new things in here, as you can see; particularly taken with the Six Organs record.
Before you ask, that’s not a new reissue of the first Fairports album; it just rolled around on my iTunes straight after the Fabulous Diamonds.

6 Various Artists – Said I Had A Vision: Songs & Labels of David Lee, 1960-1988 (Paradise Of Bachelors)
9 Fairport Convention – Fairport Convention (Polydor)
