I quite like Iain's version of it. The subtle reworking and change of emphasis makes this still sound fresh. I prefer it to Van's at this point, especially since that one is overplayed!

From the album 'Go for Broke', which I bought way back in 1978. I love this version of the song.

I recall whilst I'd bought "History" and "Rising " probably from the bargain bins around 75/76 , my elder brother had been investing in Eagles , Jackson Browne and Janis Ian ..and "Go For Broke" , great LP , particularly liked "Brown Eyed Girl" .
Met Ian when I went to see him in York touring Pure and Crooked , his more recent stuff still sounds brill , to my ears his age hasn't impacted on his vocal ability one jot

Everyone's got to make a living and all that, but this sits very uneasily with me.  https://www.africanmusicsafari.com.au/richard-thompson.html  What next?  Potholing in Peru with Celia Humphris? White water rafting down the Zambezi with Tír na nÓg?

" to my ears his age hasn't impacted on his vocal ability one jot"

For confirmation of this one only needs to hear the 1967 version of Time Will Show the Wiser back to  back with the storming Cropredy 2017 version.

Free holiday for Mr T and guest with end of holiday gig - no different than folks giving a talk on a cruise ship, or even offering special access to Cropredy for special tour groups. My question is what the heck is the Thommo / African connection?

I have been bemused by this since I first saw it, I however would like to suggest we campaign for the more affordable and afternoon at Chester Zoo as Ralph sing an appropriate selection form Alphabet Zoo.
