 MonkeyHanger if you want good Fairport to get your teeth into try What We Did On Our Holidays (1968), Red and Gold (Late 80's), Babbacombe Lee (1971ish), also Sandy Denny's 1st solo LP (one of the best I've ever heard) and the Rock On LP by the Bunch too

 For a minute there Dr Doom I thought I had a swap for the Gentle Influence 45...but it's not you that "Wants" this single. Got to say that "Come All Ye" track has really turned my head onto Fairport. Anything to recommend apart from L&L??

 Not to my knowledge MH.

I wish it were!

 Having recently discovered "Liege and Leif" I was wondering if the opening track "Come All Ye" was on a 45 anywhere?? It's a belter!

 The Ledge was a branch on a tree in Hampstead Heath. Thompson used to sit on the branch with his friends as a child. When he lost two friends at once in the terrible bus crash which he was involved in, it made him think of meeting his friends back there when... "our time is up, I'm gonna' see all my friends..." Very touching!

On another note, what a lovely colour that label was at the time! I particularly like the "eye" label too!

 Yup...every copy I've seen is the spelt with the upside down U

 Mine is. Must have been deliberate.

 Just noticed the upside down U on the Throwaway Street Puzzle scan.

I wonder if they are all like that?
