time will show the wiser

in the midst of my fairport convention binge, i found this vid of the original fairports -- before sandy denny supplanted judy dyble and they figured they'd do better exploring their island's own folk tradition rather than aping hipi yanks like jefferson airplane and the byrds (not that there's anything wrong with that) -- playing a song emmitt rhodes wrote for the merry go round. just listen to the young richard thompson ripping it up like jorma or maybe jerry miller before he discovered all them old pipe and fiddle modes. whew!
