A barnstormer of a live album from the ridiculously talented Mr Thompson. One of the few performers I know of who is actually better live than he is in the studio. His studio albums are usually incredible, Mock Tudor being a good example of such. Most tracks on this album are live versions of 'Mock Tudor' material, albeit performed in very different and often greatly extended versions. Musicianship of the highest order is on display here. As a footnote I would add that this recording was only previously available from the Richard Thompson website. It may be worth checking his own site out before purchasing this album, described on Amazon as a cd-r, as the official site offers the standard silver disc CD version AT A CHEAPER PRICE than that offered here. If you like this album check out some of Thompsons other live offerings, starting with 'Celtschmertz' a live acoustic album of staggering quality.
