Just giving this a topic of its own as it's time to blow the (very small) trumpet...

It's finally happened, the Richard Thompson 70th Birthday Special Scattering The Roots has had over 1000 listeners !

Thanks very much to everyone who's listened so far, this is the most listened to edition of Scattering The Roots since I began hosting the show in 2012 !

This special edition commemorates the 70th birthday of guitar maestro and singer/songwriter Richard Thompson.
Featuring just under 2 hours of prime Richard Thompson, from his 1972 solo debut Henry The Human Fly right up to his 2018 album 13 Rivers, stopping at several points on the journey.

Listen (or listen again...listening again is definitely encouraged  Smiley ) here :

Interesting, have any of the Fairport books or lads mentioned that memorable night ?
Fun times in the beer garden of a pub out in the sticks near Farley Chamberlayne.

"I was a little too tall could have used a few pounds
tight pants points hardly renown
she was a black-haired beauty with big dark eyes
& points of her own sitting way up high"

One suggested by the above correspondent in a similar thread about intros - which had largely instrumental examples.
It's by Ian Dury and is about a lady from London.
Billy was a lady??  Shocked

Caravan & The New Symphonia. Just plugged one of the last gaps in my Caravan albums. Held off for a long time because I was suspicious it would be twee reworkings of the songs with strings etc. Instead it's a blistering live romp through some of their great tunes with an orchestra playing their hearts out and really adding a huge amount to the songs. I think I'm heading to the repeat button.  


Yes it worked very well. I recall it being a great one-off gig at Drury Lane.  Smiley
