Although Fairport Convention is a band known for its more stable line-up with Sandy Denny with whom they recorded fabulous albums during the late 60s. But here in Green Slime Shop we are going to vindicate the line-up with Judy Dyble as singer during 1967 and part of 1968 and that resulted in the band’s first album with a sound closer to the folk-rock of the American West Coast than the Folk with English roots that they played from the second LP onwards. For this we have used two concert posters of the first line-up of the band which we have redrawn and redesigned to adapt them to the t-shirt format, also, and for the second time, we will use two different designs for the same product, one a poster announcing their first single “If I had a ribbon now” and a second design on a white t-shirt with a poster of a 1968 concert designed by Osiris visions.

Fairport Convention is a British folk rock band that was formed in 1967. In 1968, the band released their debut album, "Fairport Convention," which featured a mix of traditional English folk music and contemporary rock and roll. The album was well received and helped to establish the band as one of the leading acts in the British folk rock scene.
During this time, the band's lineup included vocalist and guitarist Simon Nicol, vocalist and bassist Ashley Hutchings, drummer Martin Lamble, and vocalist and guitarist Richard Thompson. The band's sound was heavily influenced by American folk and rock music, and they became known for their energetic live performances.
In 1968, Fairport Convention also played at the famous Isle of Wight Festival, alongside acts such as The Who, The Doors, and Jefferson Airplane. The band would go on to release several more albums over the next few years, and their music continues to be influential to this day.
