Unhalfbricking is the third album by the British folk rock band Fairport Convention and their second album released in 1969. It is seen as a transitional album in their history and marked a further musical move away from American influences towards more traditional English folk songs that had begun on their previous album, What We Did on Our Holidays and reached its peak on the follow-up, Liege & Lief, released later the same year.

FAIRPORT CONVENTION - Unhalfbricking - CD ALBUM. Fairport cking UK folk cd 2 bonus. Unhalfbricking is a step in a more folky direction and allthough I think itīs an overall better album than What We Did On Our Holidays I still miss the psychadelic approach which made the debut such an enjoyable experience.

Listen free to Fairport Convention – Unhalfbricking (Genesis Hall, Si Tu Dois Partir and more). Unhalfbricking, released in 1969, was the third album by British band Fairport Convention. It reached number 12 in the UK album charts and marked a departure from the label of "the English Jefferson Airplane". After their previous album had seen original singer Judy Dyble replaced by Sandy Denny, the group's male vocalist Iain Matthews also left, and Denny took a more central role.

Fairport Convention performing ‘Si Tu Dois Partir’ on Top of the Pops. The song did not make it into the album and was released some twenty years later on the Biograph collection. One song on Unhalfbricking points to the direction that the band will take on their next album. A Sailor’s Life is a traditional song brought to the band by Sandy Denny. The song, indexed as Roud 237 in the English Folk Dance and Song Society, was previously covered by Judy Collins on her album A Maid of Constant Sorrow in 1961 and by Martin Carthy on his second album from 1966.

On Unhalfbricking Fairport Convention take the best of folk music, and particularly of the British tradition they are proudly a part of (if not the most influential members of) and expand on the sound in a way that wouldn’t sound out of place on a Decemberists record, or something of the same ilk. A mixture of storytelling folk, British rock influences, Roots music, and a cajun-influenced zydeco style, Unhalfbricking paved the way for countless folk artists while still having a cohesive and masterful sound. The two highlights of the album come from the two songs at the most opposite ends of Fairport Convention’s musical spectrum. The first is eleven minute long epic A Salior’s Life.
