Some Sweet Day

[Felice & Boudleaux Bryant]

There are at least three Fairport Convention recordings of this song:

  1. The oldest version dates from 1967 and has Judy Dyble singing harmony vocals. It can be found on Ashley Hutchings’ 1994 anthology The Guv’nor Vol 1.
  2. On 28 May 1968, they recorded it in BBC Studio 1, 201 Piccadilly, for John Peel’s Top Gear radio show. It was produced by Bernie Andrews and broadcast on 30 June 1968. The track was released on the Heyday cassette and both of its CD versions and in 2007 on the 4CD set Live at the BBC.
  3. The third version was recorded on 16 January 1969 as a possible single release but dropped in favour of Meet on the Ledge. It was finally made available as bonus track of the 2003 CD reissue of What We Did on Our Holidays.
