Editorial Reviews

Filmed in January 2011 at the Royal Concert Hall in Glasgow as part of the annual Celtic Connections festival, this superb performance by The Richard Thompson Band marks their first live concert Blu-Ray release for five years. The first half of the show focuses on Thompson's latest Dream Attic album with the second half given over to songs reaching back as far as his first solo album Henry The Human Fly and up to recent releases such as Sweet Warrior and The Old Kit Bag . Thompson's distinctive voice and unmistakable guitar style are well to the fore and his band are as good as it gets. This will be a must have purchase for any Richard Thompson fan. / Bonus Features: Two tracks filmed at the 2011 Cambridge Folk Festival: 1) Uninhabited Man 2) Johnny s Far Away / Line-up: Richard Thompson (guitar, vocals); Michael Jerome (drums); Taras Prodaniuk (bass); Joel Zifkin (violin, mandolin); Pete Zorn (guitars, flute, saxophone, mandolin) / TRACK LISTING: 1) The Money Shuffle 2) Among The Gorse, Among The Grey 3) Haul Me Up 4) Burning Man 5) Here Comes Geordie 6) Demons In Her Dancing Shoes 7) Big Sun Falling In The River 8) Stumble On 9) Sidney Wells 10) A Brother Slips Away 11) If Love Whispers Your Name 12) The Angels Took My Racehorse Away 13) Can t Win 14) One Door Opens 15) Al Bowlly s In Heaven 16) I ll Never Give It Up 17) Wall Of Death 18) Tear Stained Letter 19) Take Care The Road You Choose 20) A Man In Need

5.0 out of 5 stars in a word...GREAT! February 3, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Wow, Richard Thompson, what a master (musician, song-smith, performer)!

This show from January 25th, 2011, recorded in Scotland after almost a year of steady touring that began in February 2010 (recorded as the album Dream Attic), consisting of two parts, new songs (played here in the same order as the album) and a selection of old favorites, is pretty much the same as what I heard at the start of the tour in Seattle, except that 2 songs from that earlier recording are missing ("Crimescene" and "Bad Again"). Although I can't remember the exact set list from the excellent, more stretched out second half, it sounds similar. The band is the same (really good, with Taras Prodaniuk on bass, and Joe Zifkin on violin and mandolin, joining RT's old reliable multi-instrumentalist Pete Zorn and drummer Michael Jerome), and the songs are clearly well known by this point, so what we get to hear probably makes RT really happy. It makes the fans happy too.

For any Richard Thompson fan this is a must have DVD (since the killer second set isn't part of Dream Attic, and their performance of "Can't Win" is worth the price of admission alone). Film (high def, sharp and clear) and sound quality is top notch, and the performance seems to be a special one as well. I admit, seeing them here on DVD is even better than it was live.

As a bonus we get two solo acoustic performances, one of my favorites - "Uninhabited Man", and the other the appropriately Celtic, "Johnny's Far Away", to a large enthusiastic crowd at the Cambridge Folk Festival - 1/19/11. Great stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Concert - Richard Thompson at his best ! January 31, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is Richard Thompson with a larger band -violin, saxophone / flute , and a solid rhythm section . It is a terrific sounding , and wonderfully shot dvd ! Richard Thompson -and band - are in fine form , and the set list of new & old songs is just right . I've seen RT many times , starting with the ' Shoot Out the Lights' tour , and this is the one of the best shows I've ever heard of his . Having the extra instruments really fills out the songs , and makes me eager to catch this group live . A ' 5 STAR ' performance !!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Enjoyable Concert DVD February 6, 2012
By Russ B
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I must note, at the start, that Dream Attic-- RT's 2010 CD that comprises the first half of this DVD's concert-- is not among my favorites in the RT catalogue. With the exception of the instant classic "If Love Whispers Your Name," the rest of Dream Attic is merely good by RT standards and not as consistently outstanding, in my judgment, as 2007's Sweet Warrior for example. That said, this is a fabulous concert DVD. The performance is impeccable, the video (I have the blu-ray version) is crisp, and the audio quality is clear and detailed. Pop this into a blu ray player hooked up to a big screen HDTV and a decent AV system and it is almost like you are attending the concert live. Aside from the Dream Attic material, the concert includes a number of RT concert staples along with some unexpected surprises. Chief among the latter is a joyous version of "The Angels Took My Race Horse Away" that will give you a new appreciation for the almost 40 year old song. If you are a Richard Thompson fan, you won't regret the purchase which at half the cost of a concert ticket is a great bargain. If you have not yet discovered RT, but have an appreciation for intelligent roots-based rock with a unique, Celtic twist, this DVD will be a revelation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Richard is King! May 21, 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This is basically the same show I saw (although in a different venue/city) over a year ago and it was great to revisit it and see Richard and the band at their best. I watched this on a 12 ft. wide screen in a $200K home theater system and can attest to it's excellent video and audio quality! If you have a screen larger than 40 or 50" definitely get the Bluray version!
Mr. Thompson is still at the top of his game here, with some terrific new material (although probably going on 2 years old by now) and a great backing band. His skill and sensitivity on guitar are second to none, and his songwriting skills are also top notch-- a rare combination!
His backing band is also terrific and is allowed significant time during the show to show off their skills as well.
Overall, if you're a RT fan, this video will not disappoint! My only (minor) complaint is if I were the video editor, I would have lingered more on Richard and the other performers more during their solos, rather than feel the need to cut away to a different "shot" every 10 - 15 seconds or so. If someone (especially RT) is doing a killer solo, stay with that for a while until it wraps up, then cut to another shot! Perhaps a minor complaint, but if Richard is soloing, I want to watch him, NOT the drummer for Pete's sake!
Overall, a five star performance and a 4 star video disc.

A consumate guitarist and songwriter in one of the world's most beautiful concert halls with an audience that is there FOR THE MUSIC add up to a fabulous DVD. Richard at his musical best with a charm and wit that wins the crowd over easily. A backup band second to none responding to a crowd that loved every note. This is a DVD not to be missed!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Grear show...TOUGH CROWD! March 26, 2013
By Teleman
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
The attendees seem to all be sedated. Even Richard's sense of humorous doesn't seem to reach them. It almost painful to watch at times! BUT, Richard is fabulous as always. Nicely shot BluRay.
