Martin Carthy later recalled that Swarbrick had been indecisive about joining, telling Carthy: "I just played with this guy Richard and I want to play with him for the rest of my life. Together, now with Swarbrick co-writing with Richard Thompson "Crazy Man Michael", they created the groundbreaking album Liege & Lief (1969). The next album Rosie is chiefly notable for the title track, written by Swarbrick, which is perhaps the song most closely associated with him, but overall it was not a critical success. The following release, Nine (1974), relied heavily on the writing partnership between Swarbrick and new member Trevor Lucas, but it perhaps lacked the vitality of previous collaborations.
Like many folk albums, Martin Carthy & Dave Swarbricks 1967 album, Byker Hill, is a mixture of bawdy, tongue-in-cheek tunes and deep, sorrowful ballads swollen with pathos. This combination of songs isn't novel for folk albums, but what separates Carthy from the pack is his ability to convey the emotions and a sense of reality to songs that are many times older than his entire lifespan. As usual with Carthy & Swarbrick, the songs here are a mixture of of guitar/fiddle/vocal, guitar/vocal, violin/vocal and a cappella vocals.
Carthy's debut solo album, Martin Carthy, was released in 1965, and also featured Dave Swarbrick playing fiddle on some tracks, although he was not mentioned in the album's sleeve notes. Carthy's arrangement of the traditional ballad "Scarborough Fair" was adapted, without acknowledgement, by Paul Simon on the Simon and Garfunkel album recording Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme in 1966 .

Byker Hill was the first album on which Carthy and Swarbrick had more than two or three hours' studio time, and, as a result, which was actually rehearsed and programmed weeks in advance. The results are less spontaneous than their earlier work, but also show a level of professionalism that few folk albums of the era ever demonstrated. EAC extraction logfile from 7. June 2013, 0:58.
