Babbacombe Lee - Fairport Convention. Лента с персональными рекомендациями и музыкальными новинками, радио, подборки на любой вкус, удобное управление своей коллекцией. Babbacombe Lee. Исполнитель: Fairport Convention. 1971 folk rock. Babbacombe Lee is the seventh album by English folk rock group Fairport Convention. Released in 1971, it tells the life story of John Babbacombe Lee, a Victorian-era alleged murderer who was condemned to death but reprieved after the gallows failed on three occasions to work properly. After the commercial and chart success of its predecessor, Angel Delight, the album sold disappointingly, and although critically acclaimed, it has its place in musical history as the first folk rock opera. The group's only concept album similar in some ways to the Pretty Things' S. Sorrow, built around the life story of John Babbacombe Lee, a Victorian-era condemned murderer. Lee's story, from his boyhood poverty to his time in the Royal Navy, his being invalided out and forced to work in the service of Miss Keyes, to her murder and his sentence of death, and the failure of the gallows three times, is told in song, and all but one of those songs are originals.
