Fairport Convention: The Ballad of Easy Rider


Recorded during the 1968 sessions for Liege and Lief, this beauty finally emerged on a CD reissue of Unhalfbricking.

Here’s a live version by Tom Petty.

And for good measure, one by Loose Windscreen. I have to say that Fairport’s is by far the best.
