DRAGGING THE RIVER
FAREWELL FAREWELL

THE OLD CHANGING WAY
TIME TO RING SOME CHANGES
TUIRSE MO CHROI
WALL OF DEATH
WHEN I'M PRIME MINISTER

"Invisible Means" was originally on Wyndham Hill in the US and on Demon in the UK. These are now deleted. However, I have been told that "Invisible Means" has been rereleased as a 2CD set together with the first French Frith Kaiser Thompson CD "Life Love Loaf and Larf" (I'm sure I got a mistake in this). You should be warned that the two FFKT albums were quite experimental and though Thompson's more familiar style comes through on a few tracks, most of the material is very different and not easily digestible. "Invisible Means" has a great rocking version of "Loch Lomond", though. Note that "Now That I Am Dead" is only on the CD version, not the vinyl.

Martin,

Thanks for the information. I did a quick search of CDNow (via the Mudcat link) and did not find the "Invisible Means CD. Do you have any information about publisher, etc? I would suppose the CD single of "I Feel So Good" would not be available. If you know a source, let me know. Thanks again, I feel closer to the goal.

It's called "Now That I Am Dead". Thompson played it extensively live for a while, but it was actually written by John French (ex-Captain Beefheart drummer), and it can be found on the French Frith Kaiser Thompson album "Invisible Means". On that version, French takes the lead vocals, though Thompson plays guitar. The version with Thompson singing was only released as a bonus live track on the CD single of "I Feel So Good".

8 - 10 years ago, I heard Richard Thompson in concert. He did a song from the point of view of a singer who did not become famous until after he died. It had the flavor of a Loudon Wainwright III song. I have searched the CD bins for a Richard Thompson title that sounded like it could be this song, but to no avail.

Anyone here on the 'Cat know this song?
