Her er mer detaljert info;
Spanning Thompsonâ€™s solo years from his first John Peel Session (with Linda Thompson) in January 1973 through to a Hub Session for Six Music in 2009, â€˜Live At The BBCâ€˜ features an entire disc of sessions and concerts from Richard and Linda Thompson, including an In Concert performance with a full band recorded just after the release of the coupleâ€™s classic 1982 album â€˜Shoot Out The Lightsâ€˜.
The remaining audio discs feature Thompson solo or with a series of great Richard Thompson Bands, drawing from all Thompsonâ€™s Island, Polydor, Chrysalis and Hannibal albums in the 70s and 80s, plus Thompsonâ€™s independent releases since 2001 from â€˜The Old Kit Bagâ€˜ to 2009′s â€˜Sweet Warriorâ€˜.
There are four otherwise unreleased songs written by Richard Thompson in this set: â€™Dragging The Riverâ€˜, 1973, â€˜Modern Womanâ€˜, 1982, â€˜Kidzzâ€˜, 2003 and â€˜Timeâ€™s Gonna Break Youâ€˜, 2009. There are also several traditional songs Thompson has not recorded elsewhere, including â€˜William Brownâ€™ and â€˜A Hunting The Wrenâ€™ which Thompson performed for Bob Harris in 2008 as part of his chronological music history lesson, 1000 Years Of Popular Music.
The DVD Disc features superb performances from the 70s and 80s, all unseen since they were broadcast aside from one clip of Richard & Linda performing â€˜A Heart Needs A Homeâ€™ on the Old Grey Whistle Test in 1975. The couple are also captured on the Jake Thackray Show and in concert for BBC Bristolâ€™s A Little Night Music, both from 1981. A solo clip of Thompsonâ€™s â€™She Twists The Knife Againâ€™ from the Whistle Test in 1985 and a Richard Thompson Band show recorded at Barrymoreâ€™s Club, Ottowa the same year, complete the DVD disc.
