Fairport Convention – Liege & Lief – 1969

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dMrW46qP4mw

In my study of the ’60s, I’ve been reading a fantastic book on ’60s music: white bicyles: making music in the 1960s by Joe Boyd. Fairport Convention is one of the many bands he managed. I missed these guys back in the day.

The 3rd song, Matty Grove, triggered my Celtic roots (my Mom maiden name was Jones—Welsh) and I’ve been clogging (don’t I wish!) (in flip-flops) around the office. (Only because no one else is around.)

About Lloyd Kahn

Lloyd Kahn started building his own home in the early '60s and went on to publish books showing homeowners how they could build their own homes with their own hands. He got his start in publishing by working as the shelter editor of the Whole Earth Catalog with Stewart Brand in the late '60s. He has since authored six highly-graphic books on homemade building, all of which are interrelated. The books, "The Shelter Library Of Building Books," include Shelter, Shelter II (1978), Home Work (2004), Builders of the Pacific Coast (2008), Tiny Homes (2012), and Tiny Homes on the Move (2014). Lloyd operates from Northern California studio built of recycled lumber, set in the midst of a vegetable garden, and hooked into the world via five Mac computers. You can check out videos (one with over 450,000 views) on Lloyd by doing a search on YouTube:
