This is a "...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. Demos written by Richard Thompson for a proposed stage musical from the mid-1970's and some powerful demos with Betsy Cook from the mid-eighties. All in all a collection 'joining-up the dots' of Linda's acclaimed career."
