  • Remastered rerelease.
  • This album marks Fairport Convention's return to the recording studio for their first new album in five years. With their line-up a decade strong (the longest grouping since the band formed in 1967), they come up with a stunning testament to the strengths that have endeared them to fans over the years. They also prove that they still thrive on playing as a band.
  • JEWEL IN THE CROWN adheres to their now-standard mixture of centuries-old British Isle jigs and reels and contemporary rock. They scamper happily from traditional numbers to songs by such contemporary writers as Leonard Cohen, Ralph McTell, and Clive Gregson. Doing so seamlessly, and leaving its own formidable mark in the process, is this band's magic. It is the gift that positions Fairport Convention at the forefront of this tradition. Multi-instrumentalist Martin Allcock's "A Surfeit of Lampreys" is a gem that sums up their powers in a stunning way--it rocks hard with one foot in the '90s and another tapping away in a century long gone.
