Fairport Convention “Ballad of the Easy Rider”

This was Fairport’s encore at the time. Recorded at Sound Techniques in 1969 as part of the Liege & Lief sessions, it was first released on Richard Thompson’s Guitar, Vocal compilation, then on the 2CD Sandy Denny compilation No More Sad Refrains: The Anthology and as bonus track of the 2003 re-issue of Fairport Convention’s album Unhalfbricking where it was thought to fit in stylistically more than on the Lieg & Lief re-issue.
