Rare Sandy live track - "Rigs of Time"
Thursday, 6 January, 2011 23:13
From: "jaynefield"

Friends,

I've just stumbled upon a rare Sandy live track called "The Rigs of Time." I uploaded it just now to this group's Yahoo site, so go here and have a listen:

http://launch.groups.yahoo.com/group/SandyDennyList/files/Jayne%27s%20files/

Technical note: I didn't have any luck playing the mp3 in my browser, but I was able to download it and play up on my computer.

This is an interesting track for several reasons: it's a song available nowhere else in any official release; it's completely acapella; she's singing with others (including, I think, Richard Thompson); and there are some funny moments at the outset when two men (RT and someone else, I think) discuss the song, then Sandy flubs the intro. But after this introductory minute, there are 2 and a half minutes of sublime trad. music.

Questions:
1. Does anyone know any more about this track? I know nothing about the date or location
2. Might it be from the Eltham Well Hall show encore in 1972 as noted here on Reinhard Zierke's excellent site?
http://www.informatik.uni-hamburg.de/~zierke/shirley.collins/songs/rigsofthetime.html
3. Is the photo towards the end of the book found in the new Sandy box perhaps a photo of this same performance?

Would love to hear what you know or think of this track.

Cheers!

I can't access that mp3 without joining up, but my guess is that it's this song.

That is indeed Richard Thompson talking during the intro. Also it seems to me to play somewhat fast. If it's Eltham (May 8 '72) the other artists were Pat Donaldson and Tim (Timi?) Donald. Linda Peters (before she became Thompson)appeared on a couple of tracks but not this one.

Ah, I've also seen this listed as 8th August - US/UK date format reversal. My reference books are at home so I can't check.

Apparently the track comes from an upload online "from a rather mysterious 7-volume set called "Friends of Fairport" other in cyberspace last year." Apparently all of the tracks are one-offs. Does anyone have any info. on this set?

Oh and by the way the date format is indeed U.S. and it was 5th August see Original Promotional Poster curtesy of my mate Lord Kenningham of Eltham who a few years later carried on the folk tradition at this very site, Well Hall Pleasuance, upstairs at the Tudor Barn!

Now where can we obtain that recording from Well Hall? Surely it needs re-issuing?

Other places to find Sandy shows on the Internet:

1. Here's an alternative place to find the same show:

http://time-has-told-me.blogspot.com/2009/05/sandy-denny.html

But here's another site all Sandy fans need to know about:

2. http://www.prartwork.com/forum/

Register (free), enter, click on "music" and then you'll find a list of artists, including Fairport Convention / Sandy Denny.

When you get there, you'll find a wealth of SD and Fairport shows there, all in lossless flac format -- even a Sandy DVD!

Yes, this is the last song (No.14) of the Eltham Well Hall concert in 1972. The concert is still seeded as a "lossless" torrent at "dimeadozen.org" and is seeded nearly every day.

There's another a capella number on it called "Reynard The Fox" which is kind of similar to "Rigs Of Time"

Since the sound quality doesn't necessarily require a lossless copy, the MP3 files of the concert are also available in a zip archive at:

http://tinyurl.com/2g22w36

If anyone is interested in a lossless copy, you log in as a member to "dimeadozen.org" (free membership) and click the following link:

http://www.dimeadozen.org/torrents-details.php?id=113271

It's a completely legal torrent.

Ooops I listed track 6 as "Reynardine" it is as CJB says called "Reynard The Fox" Sorry folks. The good Lord Kenningham of Eltham tells me that he did in fact attend the concert. These were weekly events organised and presented by the legendary Joe Stead.
