Yeah, I agree with your point regarding Trevor Lucas. He was excellent. I quite like Gotttle O' Geer despite the fact it's a sprawling mess of an album. Most of the individual tracks are strong but they don't necessarily sound like they should be sharing space on the same record. And, as you say, it brought Simon Nicol back in to the fold, albeit as engineer & guest initially, which led to my two favourite Fairport albums, The Bonny Bunch & Tipplers Tales.
