Fairport Convention returned with their next studio album on December 15, 1990: “The Five Seasons.”  Once again, the band was doing their best at combining various elements of British folk music with rock elements, thus creating a hybrid of delight.  The band consists of (1) Maartin Allcock (numerous stringed instruments, keyboards, and vocals) (2) Dave Pegg (basses, guitars, and vocals) (3) Ric Sanders (violins) (4) Simon Nichol (guitars, vocals), and (5) Dave Mattacks (drums, percussion, and keyboards).  As always, the band combines covers of favorite British folk tunes with some self-penned material as they always do.  We hope you will seek this classic album out wherever it is you shop for the absolute best in music- you will be glad you did.

Sunday, November 22, 2020, Today in History:

We feel compelled to share with our new readers that we are an OPINION SITE and not a NEWS SITE although we do report the news.  If anything, we are big history buffs which is why we have been going strong since early 2009…

Monday, November 22, 2021:


[i] When we begin promoting the music of our favorite classical composers and the conductors who perform them, Ravel will be among the first.  Stick around for when that day comes…

[ii] Not sure when we will get around to doing the music of Three Dog Night but if we ever return to promoting the music of famed rock bands from the 1960s and the 1970s, we sure as heck will include this stellar band, one that is still performing to this day.  We saw them in 2019 and all we can say is “Wow.”

[iii] We began promoting the music of this famed British blues-boogie-rock band on Monday, 12-February-2018 and the offerings ran through Monday, 19-March-2018.  Please look for them in these posts.  You will be glad you did.

[iv] We have yet to offer the music of the Talking Heads but hope to get around doing so and soon.  Stay tuned.

[v] New York State Athletic Commission.

[vi] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.    The “White Album” appeared on Thursday, 24-November-2016.  Please seek out this massive offering by visiting the blog posts between those dates. You will be glad you did.

[vii] Although leftist historians of modern-day call El Caudillo Francisco Franco an ‘evil dictator,’ the man kept his country out of World War II as well as prevented a communist takeover of the nation.  He deserves celebration, not condemnation.

[viii] We have not yet begun presenting the music of INXS but hope to do sometime in 2022-2023.

[ix] This pro-Russian German leader is a disgrace to her country and to the world.
