Saw them in South Jersey around 1974. We were right up against the stage. One band member took a sax solo and after he was done he put a cigarette in his mouth and asked us for a lite.

Liege & Lief
One of the really great albums of all time.
I think Jimmy Page said it was his all time favorite in an interview some years ago.
And another one passes.

“And another one passes.”
Another what? Old person?
Been going on forever.

Thats my favorite of their tunes. First heard it by Judy Collins which led me back to the original. Thanks for posting.

Fairport Covention never had or used a sax player . Either you are confusing FC with another band , or it was not a sax player but Swarbrick the fiddle player who was a very heavy smoker .
