    1. Liege & Lief - Fairport Convention
    2. Basket Of Light - Pentangle
    3. John Wesley Harding - Bob Dylan
    4. Sounds of Silence- Simon & Garfunkel
    5. After the Gold Rush- Neil Young
    6. Stormcock - Roy Harper
    7. Five Leaves Left - Nick Drake
    8. The Notorious Byrd Brothers - The Byrds
    9. Crosby, Stills And Nash - Crosby, Stills And Nash
    10. Bringing It All Back Home - Bob Dylan

    And of course "Nicely Out of Tune" - Lindisfarne ... a brilliant album.:D

    I could put them in any order and you could maybe argue the content but I like a bit of a rock/country/blues underbelly to my Folk.

    Fairport Convention has to go down in my book as the top Celtic Infused Folk Rock Band ever. I do love the days that Sandy Denny was with the group as she has a beautiful voice, but I feel they hit there peak when Dave Swarbrick was singing lead vocal and playing the fiddle. My favourite album by Fairport Convention is Full House as every song is great in my opinion. My favourite song by them is also on that album in The Flowers Of The Forest.

    Fairport Convention has at least a top 5 album of my favorites of all time in Liege & Lief. It is one of those albums that every track on it is just musically outstanding. My favorite song from that great album is Matty Groves. Matty Groves tells such a great story.
