898. si tu dois partir

Wherein English folk outfit Fairport Convention take a Bob Dylan ditty, flip it into French and score a minor hit. And why not? It’s got a got a good groove and there’s no arguing with Sandy Denny‘s voice, whatever language she’s singing. From an album called Unhalfbricking that, for all its good time vibes, marked a tragic moment for the band as drummer Martin Lamble and friend Jeannie Franklyn were killed in a car accident barely two months before its release. They would carry on.
