C is for Collaborations



This product is included in: Swarb!
In February 1968, Joe Boyd asked Fairport who they wanted to play fiddle on a session for their next album. They gave a unanimous (if, in their eyes, optimistic) answer – “Dave Swarbrick”. This CD shows why Swarb has been the magic ingredient in so many groups. Mighty oaks and tiny acorns….a British Rail compartment, a Sound Techniques recording studio, & living rooms from Preston Capes to Sydney are all unlikely seeding ground for musical greatness. Here is Swarb with the musical configurations that began there and elsewhere. Settle down and listen to the bands. 72 minutes
