Yes, it is still going, apparently.  A bit worrying that the intended audience these days would be expected to pick up on a reference like that to Fairport!

I bow to nobody in my love for Sloth. I have many versions, all compiled into a single playlist and have just been listening to the latest splendid rendition from Off The Desk 2020. But I have never been able to hear it without thinking at least fleetingly of this.

In my head it must be one of the Richard and Jerry dualathons at Cropredy (with added Maart?), surely - although narrowing it down to a date and performance is beyond my current capabilities...  I swear I saw a 15 minute one, although it might only have existed in my dreams.

The longest recording I have is from Cropredy 1983, clocking in at 19 minutes and 29 seconds.

The longest I have actually witnessed was Cropredy 1997, 13 minutes and 7 seconds.

Impressively there is a duo performance by Nicol and Swarbrick that clocks in at nearly 13 minutes with just acoustic guitar and fiddle at their disposal.

Damn...missed the first by a year!  The majestic Richard and Swarb acoustic version from a decade or so ago is only 9 or 10 minutes long but time stands still during it, so maybe that's just infinitely long (or short)  Wink Grin

In which direction David? 1982 was 16 minutes and 36 seconds but I don't have a recording from 1984.

Incidentally the shortest band performance is from the ITV Celebration TV show at 6 minutes and 5 seconds and the shortest version altogether is Richard Thompson solo from the Acoustic Rarities album at 5 minutes and 27 seconds which, lets face it, is not really trying.  Grin

'84 was my first, then '87 and every year except a couple until 2010.... your music must be significantly better catalogued than mine.  I'm not sure if I've got an '84 recording or not actually...thought I did but I'm not sure.  So much of my stuff is in store, mind....
