Fairport Convention and Electric Folk tells of the blossoming of British folk music in the late sixties, as rediscovered pastoral sensibilities aligned themselves with electric instrumentation. The album that spearheaded this gentle revival was Fairport Convention's Liege and Lief - a bewitching mix of time-honoured standards and band originals, wove through with Sandy Denny's haunting voice and Richard Thompson's remarkable guitar playing. The scene that developed found its ideals in the bucolic and the communal, in Albion and its traditions, and included such influential bands and artists as Steeleye Span, John and Beverley Martyn, and Nick Drake.
