Liege & Lief is, in my mind (whatever that’s good for…), the most superior example of electric folk music ever to be recorded in this current universe, and, most likely in all of the infinite alternate universes as well. Its just one of those albums that is most absurdly astonishing in most every aspect. Its amazing! Also… nevermind. Anyways, the Fairport Convention are generally known as the inventors of the folk rock genre in England. (Although the Strawbs and the Pentangle, who also are of the genre, did also exist at the time.) The album Liege & Lief was their 4th studio album, and it was released in December of 1969.
