Thompson, Richard - Live at Rock City, Nottingham, November 1986 : 2 x CDs (Mega Blowout Sale)

I saw this band around the time of this tour (although for me it was in Burlington, VT) and everything said below is spot on!

“If you've spent any time browsing through CDs in a market stall, you've seen them: shoddily packaged discs from a label you've never heard of, documenting live shows that were originally recorded for radio broadcast. They usually cost a few bucks, and sometimes they're worth it.
This one is very different. For one thing, the sound quality is excellent. For another, 1986 was the year that, in my opinion, Richard Thompson's band was at its best-he had John Kirkpatrick, Christine Collister, and Clive Gregson, among others, and although you don't have Dave Mattacks on drums the band still sounds fantastic. And he was touring songs from both Across a Crowded Room and Daring Adventures, which I still think were two of his best-ever solo albums.
The patter is wry, the solos are incendiary, and the whole energy of this gig is just tremendous. Highly recommended to all pop collections.”-Rick Anderson – CD HotList August 2020 Rick's Pick
