What We Did on Our Holidays released as Fairport Convention in the United States is the second album by British band Fairport Convention, released in 1969. It was their first album to feature singer-songwriter Sandy Denny. The album also showed a move towards the folk rock for which the band became noted, including tracks later to become perennial favourites such as Fotheringay and the song traditionally used to close live concerts, Meet on the Ledge. Confusingly, What We Did on Our Holidays was titled Fairport Convention in its initial U. release, with a different cover from the U.

It was the first Fairport album to feature Sandy Dennys unforgettable vocals and her addition to their songwriting talent pool. Published on. January 30, 2020. Fairport Convention are commonly considered to be the first British folk-rock group, which is essentially true even if it doesn't really count for much. Releasing their self-titled debut in 1967, they drew heavily the Byrds, Joni Mitchell, Jefferson Airplane, and especially Bob Dylan, but they weren't merely aping an American trend. Righting two wrongs at once, Water Records has reissued the band's second and third albums, What We Did on Our Holidays and Unhalfbricking, both from 1969, and both previously unavailable in America. Legendary producer Joe Boyd oversaw both records, lending them a live sound that complements the musicians' youthful vigor. Band Name Fairport Convention. Album Name What We Did on Our Holidays.

This is the album where the Fairport malefemale vocalist style, pioneered by Judy Dyble and Ian Matthews on the first album, reached its peak with the pairing of Matthews and Sandy Denny. The other members of the band here are Richard Thompson, Simon Nicol, Ashley Hutchings and Martin Lamble, who all contribute high quality playing
