Fairport Convention

Reference Number. 7838


An original 1971 Babbacombe Lee LP, clearly signed on the inner sleeve in red ink by all four group members of the period ; Dave Pegg / Dave Swarbrick / Dave Mattacks and Simon Nicol.

Babbacombe Lee was the 7th studio album by Fairport Convention released in 1971. It told the life story of John Babbacombe Lee, a Victorian-era alleged murderer who was condemned to death, but reprieved after the gallows failed to work properly on three occasions. After the commercial and chart success of its predecessor "Angel Delight", this LP sold disappointingly and although critically acclaimed, it has its place in musical history as the first folk rock opera.
