boombox's notes june 2022:
Barely seven months on from their last appearance, Fairport returned to the all too familiar surroundings of a sold-out Acapela. The setlist varied a bit from their previous visit - 'Over The Lancashire Hills' from Simon's first solo album got a rare outing and the late Maartin Alcock's contribution to the band was recognised with a dusting off of 'Lalla Rookh'. The band were all in good humour and Ric got two standup slots.

My recording came out very well on the whole, although in between songs, there was some diginoise - a kind of rhythmic clicking - evident on my primary source. (Why can't people stay off their phones?!!) As a result, the introductions needed my other unaffected source to patch them. For good measure, I also added in a bit of mrunhalf's source as the R07 internal mics are more sensitive and natural sounding than the HR-09's. The PA was also very quiet, so in boosting levels, there is a tiny bit of background noise in between songs if you listen very closely. All in all, though, it still sounds very good.
