Richard & Linda Thompson
"Live At Kew Bridge Folk Club, England" (1972?)

Manila said...
People seem to like the bootlegs, so I'll add one myself. I can't confirm that this was actually recorded at Kew Bridge (maybe someone else can?) but it's definitely the Thompsons playing a small club. Not terrific quality - someone in the audience wanted a souvenir! - but it's still a fascinating glimpse of a time in the early 70s when R&L were playing anywhere and everywhere to make ends meet. Plus it's great to hear live versions of tracks from RT's first solo album, 'Henry The Human Fly'. Sorry, no artwork for this.

With apologies to Luis for barging in on his territory. ;-)
And yet more grovelling apologies for my 'A Mighty Wind' gaffe. (It was late, I was tired, the damn coffee was decaff....what can I tell you?)

The Boathouse, Kew Bridge, London 24th October 1972

I have a cover for this, which says: recorded at the Boathouse, Kew Bridge, London, on October 24, 1972. Can't remember where it came from. The tracklist is the same, only track 7 is called "Once brave Napoleon".

Track 7 is on the RT box set, and is called "Napoleon's Dream". It's a traditional.

I also think the correct title for track 8 is "Maple Leaf Reel".
