This is the Cropredy box-set fans have always wanted - it's both a perfect souvenir and a fitting celebration of the world's greatest folk rock festival; - and IF 2004's Cropredy Festival turns out to be the very last 'Cropredy-as-we-know-it' , this lavish set will prove the perfect commemoration of this unique era of English musical history.
This mighty set, jointly produced by Free Reed and Woodworm, contains four full-length themed CDs with booklets
- 136-page full-colour book (loads of rare pics from Fairport & fans) - the first full history of the festival's first quarter century, tracklists and in-depth interviews
- 'Walk Awhile' - a 48-page village guide to Cropredy
- a 'cut-out and build' model of the Festival
- the 1st 2,000 serially-numbered sets are all signed by the band!
The music - 80% unreleased - is taken from Dave Pegg's archive of digital masters recorded at each & every festival: selections still being finalised - but here's a taste of what to expect! - you can click on individual CD titles for track details information.
Important Ordering Information
Sales of the first 2000 copies, which are serially-numbered and personally-signed by all band members, are via Free Reed's mail-order and on-line sales only; then the set will be on sale at the wonderful Rocking Chair Records stall during Cropredy Festival (next to the Bar and to Leon's Wholefood!) with Band signings all weekend - and the set will finally be released to shops and dealers around the world from August 16th!
