If you think former Fairport vocalist Ian Matthews ripped off the Eagles in his version of "Seven Bridges Road," you've got it backwards; this version predates the Eagles' by [i]seven years[/i]. Two of Brit folk's finest players, guitarist Richard Thompson and fiddler Dave Swarbrick, spur each other to a near meltdown in a song they cowrote, Fairport Convention's epic "Sloth." Steve Tilston and ex-wife Maggie Boyle wrap an American history lesson around four chords and honeyed harmonies in "Here's to Tom Paine." And we close out our tour through the ancestral home of bangers and mash with a tune far more inviting than the island's cuisine — occasional Albion Band member John Tams' "Who Will Blow the Candle Out Tonight."
