RICHARD THOMPSON Gathered Tracks, Vols. 1-8

Richard-Thompson Some of our earliest posts, from March 2007, were these collections of Richard Thompson’s “Gathered Tracks” – officially released recordings (and some that weren’t) compiled from countless live discs, various artists tribute CDs, festival shows, webcasts, official downloads and other nooks & crannies hiding RT material. We ended up with 6 (now expanded to 8) volumes in all, with some help from our readers (including Wolfgang, who supplied covers, too). While putting together the Five Live Box series, we we’re able to replace some low bit-rate files and add two more volumes of radio performances and webcasts. All volumes have been spiffed-up for your listening pleasure.

Gathered Tracks Vol. 1
At the time of the original posting, “Dad’s Gonna Kill Me,” Thompson’s anti-war tune, was an advance download for the Sweet Warrior CD. Notable treats on Vol. 1 include RT’s righteous cover of Britney Spears’ “Oops! I Did It Again” and a searing, 10 minute live version of “Put Her There, Pal.”

Gathered Tracks Vol. 3
Pulled from four specific studio albums, including three tracks from Thompson’s own Capitol best of, Action Packed, which featured a few vinyl-only rarities. The 1990 various artists gathering, Hard Cash, features three RT contributions and there are the 2 albums from one of the oddest personnel configurations on record, French, Frith, Kaiser & Thompson. Thompson’s contributions for Live Love Larf & Loaf and Invisible Means include some great work, especially the bizarre “Dance of the Cosmetic Surgeons” and the essential tracks, “A Blind Step Away” and “The Killing Jar.”

Gathered Tracks Vol. 4
Wolfgang Edition: Includes RT’s naturally dark reading of Joni Mitchell’s “Woodstock,” from a televised tribute concert and three live performances from a German promo single that accompanied 1985’s Daring Adventures. The 10 minute live “Jerusalem On The Jukebox” from the Reckless Kind E.P. CD is just blistering beyond belief. Some are vinyl rips and over the air broadcasts, so the quality varies. But it’s all good.

Gathered Tracks Vol. 6
Comprised of live bonus and unreleased tracks from three Richard & Linda Thompson reissues and the Linda Thompson retrospective, Dreams Fly Away. A lot of cool tracks here, though, from what I’ve read, RT was less than thrilled with the reissues and had nothing to do with their release. The Linda comp includes two tracks from the aborted 1980 Gerry Rafferty Sessions for the R&L classic Shoot Out The Lights. And, it’s great to hear these tapes in crisp and clean fidelity.

Gathered Tracks Vol. 7
A gathering of radio performances from 2002-2007. Most are for various National Public Radio shows, like Fresh Air, World Cafe and other live, on-air studio sessions. Two tracks come from an appearance on WNYC in New York. There’s some song repetition as a result – three versions of “Let It Blow” and “Old Thames Side,” for instance – but, so what? You also get RT’s unreleased “Hots For The Smarts” and his grim, 9/11 response, “Outside Of The Inside,” written by RT from the point of view of the Taliban. Great sound.

Gathered Tracks Vol. 8
Two radio/webcast performances. One is from Club Lek in Amsterdam, recorded February 19, 2003. The other comes from The Cutting Room in Manhattan, June 30, 2005. I’ve seen the Cutting Room show listed with a couple of additional tunes, but I’ve had this direct station download for a while and it never included “Persuasion” or “Old Thames Side.” It’s possible the station recorded, but never played or posted those particular tunes. I’m not sure. We did, however, edit the 10 minute conversation with the DJ/host. The set’s long-winded introduction might explain why.

    Thank you so much! I grabbed Vol 4 right away as soon as I saw what I was looking for: "Turning of the Tide" live solo acoustic from the Ben Jerry's Newport album. A folk DJ from the Phila area Gene Shay would play that particular version & I always wanted it. Have to try the other volumes too. Thanks again for all that you do. Big fan of this place!

    Yeah thanx for these.
    I see that Fairport's Liege and Leaf has been given the deluxe treatment.
    My doctor when I first moved to london in the 70's was Simon Nichol's dad and he still was at the house called 'Fairport' in Muswell Hill that they used to rehearse in when they started.
    such a gtr player.
    the best (English) in my opinion is between him, John Martyn and Nick Drake.

    Thanks Mona,
    Personally, I don't think anyone can touch him on an acoustic, but my knowledge of Martyn is limited. Had the pleasure of meeting RT in the early 90s (I knew the show's promoter). He was as gracious a guy as you'd imagine and he took a moment to show me how to play "Substitute" on guitar.

    Phew! That version of 'season' is astonishing and i have never been a Donovan fan but what also struck me was how much Tom verlaine is indebted to RT's guitar sound. i do remember interviews at the beginning of Television when he said he really like all that Joe Boyd produced stuff.
    Back to listen to more.

    my hat is off to you Capt. Willard – an amazing undertaking. Now, not to be greedy, but when you get around to volume 7, how about seeking out two gems from Live (More or Less) – the steaming version of Cavalry Cross (as Night Comes In did make it on to the Pour Down Like Silver CD) and the lovely, lovely alternate version of A Heart Needs a Home (first dance at our wedding reception, 25 years ago this November).

    We rarely do full size artwork. You can use Google for that function. If it's unique artwork, like these, we include it in with the download. Sometimes they're full size, sometimes not. Art has never been our main concern.

    I'd made the comment a couple of months back about Live More or Less and the long version of Calvary Cross – this, and the alternate version of A Heart needs a Home, are apparently both on the somewhat maligned Best of R & L Thompson – the Island Years collection. So there we are!

    Always glad to see RT gettin' his due – he's one of those troubadours troubadour kind of guys with an ability to simultaneously blend melody and rhythm on his guitar in a songwriting style few possess.
    I had the pleasure of taking my daughter (26) and son (17) to see him this past October and my only regret is that the show was a shared bill (w/LWIII) and he didn't play alone nearly long enough for me – I was enraptured.
    He had done a string of 3 shows in New York the week before, alone, and I have recordings of two of those nights and they fill 3 discs each of just him!

    Incredible mix you've assembled with only one thing missing – a solo live acoustic rendering of "Pharaoh" – there are some great ones he performed at St. Annes Church in Brooklyn NY in the 80's and later in the 90's with David Byrne on the bill with him – full of haunting echo – there's a few on youtube

    So glad to have you back. I could not find your blog under it’s old name for months and I thought it’s vanished. Today I was only googleing a picture of Richard Thompson, and there you are again.
    Especially your giant Dylan and Thompson posts are fantastic. I really appreciate your work with these (and the rest, too).
    I’ve seen RT a few weeks ago (wonderful solo acoustic concert), on YouTube you can find 5 songs in a playlist (quite good audio, bad video) when you search for Richard Thompson, 2011 Vienna.

    This is amazing and I’m not sure I ever said thanks. The version of Joni’s Black Crow might be one of my fave ever Thompson performances. I’d love to hear the whoe broadcast if you have the whole thing? Leads me on to a question. I used to have (guitar, vocal) on Cd but lost it along the way. Mostly the stuff has appeared on reissues but there are a couple of tracks that haven’t any chance you or your helpers would be able to lay your hands on these? The Hip-o-select reissue of Shoot out the Lights had an extr live disc that came and went so quickly…

    Not related to Thompson but the Neil Young Archive release had some extra downloads which I’ve never managed to track down and might be something in the scope of what you do?

    I don’t have the Joni broadcast and don’t know how much Thompson was involved in it, as it was a various artist thing. Don’t deal much with video, anyway. Haven’t kept up on the reissues either… need to catch up myself. Sorry. As for Neil’s catalog. That might be an undertaking. My biggest problem is keeping up with all the new stuff that comes out.

    Hi,

    I don’t understand how to use the site I’m sorry. Is there a link to a download or are these for listening only?

    Thanks,

    Ivan

    Regarding this, which was used on many other sites:
    ” … We ended up with 6 (now expanded to 8) volumes in all, with some help from our readers (including Wolfgang, who supplied covers, too). …”
    I have to say that the whole Volumes 1 to 6 are made by me and nothing else as the covers with front and bachsides.

      Wolfgang… you need to get your mind right. I saw your comments on another site and was rather insulted by them, as I’m insulted by your comments (and memory) here. I put together – and posted – the first three volumes of this collection myself back in 2007 on my old blog, Never Get Out Of The Boat. When you saw them, you wrote me to say you wanted to do the same idea and had a bunch of tracks yourself. Which is when you sent me files for Volumes 4 & 5. It’s WHY they’re called “Wolfgang Editions,” and have been called that since 2007. Along with the files for those TWO volumes, you kindly made covers, too (for the first six).

      I’m sorry you can’t remember things the way they went down, and you now believe that, just because you were “thinking” about this project, you now think you actually DID it. You said on another site that you shared these files with other forums over the years – no doubt taking credit for them there, as well… so often, that you now believe you started the project. You didn’t! The credit you’ve received in the text is accurate, and has been in print that way (in one form or another) since 2007. In fact, other readers contributed a handful tracks to this collection, too… not just you. I appreciate your contributions, in the form of Volumes 4 & 5 and the covers, but I don’t appreciate your faulty memory or your wildly inaccurate claims. Get your shit together.

    The download link at MEGA for volume 1 is failing. It looks like the file is there, but the site generates a “Temporary error, retrying.” I’ve tried about 5 times over a 24 hour period.

    Thanks so much for putting all these files up!

      Thanks. I replaced the link, so try it again. If you get the same message, make sure your computer hasn’t just cached the same page.

        That seems to have fixed it. Thanks.
