  1. Stars. I cannot believe how underrated this album is. I listened to it many years ago without paying much attention (we were told incorrectly by critics that when Thompson left that was really it) So I recently bought this legacy release for the bonus live c.d-- Rising for the Moon now ranks as the equal to the other 3 albums that feature Denny in lead vocal chair/5(30).
  2. Rising for the Moon is nice British folk rock but far away being classic of any sort. At this period Fairport Convention was already a bit weary group. The band had done their classic albums ages ago. This album is their tenth. Rising for the Moon was also the last album featuring Sandy Denny. Denny had parted the band earlier but came back for this album.
  3. Only the Swarbrick/Pegg "Night-Time Girl" resembles Fairport's established work from their earlier history. This was the last album and the last incarnation of Fairport Convention to present itself to the public as a contemporary rock group. Beyond this point, they became part of the folk revival circuit, albeit with a huge audience.
  4. Dawn This song is by Fairport Convention and appears on the album Rising For The Moon (). (Sandy Denny, Jerry Donahue) Morning shone among the shadows Sunlight bled upon the silence From the blackest night Must come the morning sky But yesterday was such a long time Yesterday may last forever From the barren land Yesterday might always rise Sleep, will we ever sleep Oh, to sleep in .
  5. Fairport Convention are a British folk rock band, formed in by Richard Thompson (guitar, vocals), Simon Nicol (guitar, vocals), Ashley Hutchings (bass guitar), and Shaun Frater (drums, percussion), with Frater replaced by Martin Lamble after their first gig. They started out heavily influenced by American folk rock and singer-songwriter material, with a setlist dominated by Bob Dylan and.
  6. This deluxe reissue of Fairport Convention's album Rising for the Moon includes a second CD which features a live recording from the LA Troubadour the previous year (), where Sandy Denny rejoined Fairport. This album proved to be Denny's last when it was recorded back in '/5(77).
  7. Dawn Fairport Convention. Album Rising for the Moon. Dawn Lyrics (Sandy Denny, Jerry Donahue) Morning shone among the shadows Sunlight bled upon the silence From the blackest night.
