LINDA THOMPSON ~ Give Me A Sad Song FLED 3020

fled3020.jpgA wonderful historical collection of previously unreleased demos and rare tracks from Linda Thompson – one of Britain’s finest interpretive singers. Remarkable demos from 1970 recorded with Martin Carthy. Linda’s contributions to a very rare album of Brian Patten’s poems. Long-lost demos written by Richard Thompson for a proposed stage musical from the mid-1970’s and some powerful demos written by Linda with Betsy Cook from the mid-eighties. All in all a marvelous collection which “joins-up the dots” of Linda’s acclaimed career.
