Notable is the fact that several members of Fairport Convention appeared as session musicians on “Bryter Layter.” Today, I feature “Hazey Jane I” (yes there is a “Hazey Jane II, which appears earlier on the album – if you can figure that one out).
This little nugget features the very tasty acoustic guitar and vocals by Drake. Two members of Fairport, Dave Mattacks (drums) and Dave Pegg (bass), round out the rhythm section. Additionally, the song is layered with a string arrangement by the late Robert Kirby. Nice stuff that Pandora reminded me of just recently.
