FRENCH FRITH KAISER THOMPSON Live, Live, Live & Live (1987) -Unreleased

Pretty solid unreleased live recording of John French, Fred Frith, Henry Kaiser and Richard Thompson, from The Ashkenaz in Berkeley, California, March 8, 1987. This concert took place just after the recording of French Frith Kaiser Thompson's debut album together, Live, Love, Larf & Loaf. The set is naturally heavy with LLL&L material, filled out with solo contributions from all members, including Thompson's "When The Spell Is Broken" & The Calvary Cross," and Kaiser's bizarre children's story rendition, "The Devil In The Drain." Over two hours.

This is brilliant stuff. Tis a pity that it isn't released (commercially of course) in a lossless format.
