‘Unhalfbricking’ was recorded between January and April 1969 and shows the band gaining confidence. Ian Matthews left the group during the recordings, and they decided not to replace him. The material is strong, and their covers of three Bob Dylan songs (including material from the then-bootleg ‘The Basement Tapes’) yielded a Top 30 UK hit single, ‘Si Ti Dois Partir’ – a cover of ‘If You Gotta Go, Go Now’, sung in French. Sandy Denny contributes her keynote song ‘Who Knows Where The Time Goes’, and most remarkable of all is ‘A Sailor’s Life’, a traditional folk song arranged by Simon Nicol and Richard Thompson. The ballad builds over 11 minutes into a full-on wig-out with a guest performance by Dave Swarbrick on fiddle
