"The notes, which were included with the original cassette release are reproduced with this re-mastered CD, giving details of each song and why they were chosen. The recordings here span the years 1971 to 1974, and just a couple of different line-ups, along with one guest, past and future member Sandy Denny joining the band for several favourites and "That'll Be The Day", previously unrecorded by Fairport. All the versions here were only available on the original cassette release, and have been unavailable for many years..." - Ian Burgess, Friends Of Fairport Sept 2002
