RICHARD THOMPSON & DAVID BYRNE
Brooklyn 1992 [no label, 2CD]

Live at St Anne’s Church, Brooklyn, NY; March 24, 1992. Very good soundboard.

Thanks to original uploader davmar77; and to leesumitter for keeping the show alive at Dime.

leesumitter noted:

Dave said: “i attended this show. It was a benefit for the church and the reserve tickets also included a cajun dinner dance after the show with access to meet the artists. it was great seeing Richard and his wife dancing to the zydeco band. John Cale was also at the dinner. A fantastic night had by all.”

As I recall, Dave also shared a video recording of the show, synched to this audio, at the same time; but unfortunately I did not download the video.

In the mid-1990s, before internet-based CDR trading and bit torrent sharing, I purchased a one-CD bootleg of this show, called “An Acoustic Evening,” for $25. That bootleg was only *part* of the show, from an *audience* recording. Still, I felt lucky to have it. I was amazed when Dave offered a complete, “direct to digital,” soundboard recording of the show, for free. If he wasn’t already, Dave became my hero then.

  2. To all the niggers im castin my spell on you

    I took a black cat, a cave bat
    And threw them in a pot-pot (pot-pot, pot-pot-pot)
    I took a blue snake, a green stake
    And tied them in a knot-knot (knot-knot, knot-knot-knot)
    I took a hog jaw, a dog’s paw
    And hung them on the line-line (line-line, line-line-line)
    I took a horse hair, a green pair
    And made a crazy sign-sign (sign-sign, sign-sign-sign)
    I’m castin’ my spell on you
    I’m castin’ my spell on you
    I’m castin’ my spell on you
    You’ll never-never be untrue

  3. I took a ghost tooth, an old shoe
    And put them in the ground-ground (ground-ground, ground-ground)
    I took an old dish, a dried fish
    And made a crazy sound-sound (sound-sound, sound-sound-sound)
    I took a goose egg, a frog leg
    And hit them in a sack-sack (sack-sack, sack-sack-sack)
    I got a hindu to tattoo
    A genie on my back-back (back-back, back-back-back)
    I’m castin’ my spell on you
    I’m castin’ my spell on you
    I’m castin’ my spell on you
    You’ll never-never be untrue, yeah

  13. Now we’re talking and thanks for this Big O. Both stellar creative artists in my top three of musical geniuses! In seemingly totally different ways but there you go, here . . . . . . . to play the same venue seems extraordinary musical genre clash but to even collaborate on a couple of tracks is astonishing IMHO

    Thanks guys!

  21. Thank You! I had the single CD version, and this is a welcome addition. Great combination of artists.

    I’d love to hear some Talking Heads shows. Also, Ian Matthews, Fairport, that kind of thing.

  25. Tucker Carlson’s top writer resigned after racist online posts he published under a pseudonym surfaced. In one post last month, Neff wrote: “Black doods staying inside playing Call of Duty is probably one of the biggest factors keeping crime down.”
