In the Freereed Records tradition, another bang-up box set, this time of live music from the infamous Fairport gathering at Cropedy each year for the last 25. 4 thematic CDs: Bruised & Beaten Songs, Farewell 'Farewell', Blow Again and The Winding Road
plus a big book of details and photos, and lots of extras, as always.

Press from the label:
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 music - 80% unreleased - is taken from Dave Pegg's archive of digital masters recorded at each & every festival.

Please note!
Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. We guarantee that the CD and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
