So my friend Greg has been trying to get me to like Fairport Convention, Sandy Denny and Richard Thompson. At first, I poo-pooed them thinking they were a bit lightweight, but then I realized that, as Greg pointed out, that Fairport is a lot like Jefferson Airplane and I like them. They are also a lot like The Mamas and the Papas strangely enough, with their harmonies.
They also hung around Led Zeppelin a lot, with Denny contributing vocal's on Zep's "Battle for Evermore" on their 4th album.
Ok, ok, so I like them now. I don't know if I'll rush out to buy all their albums as I have done with groups I have embraced in the past,
