45th Anniversary reissue of Richard Thompson's 1976 collection of rarities with Fairport Convention, his then-wife Linda Thompson and solo. Remastered and available on 180-gram heavy vinyl.

(Guitar, Vocal) A Collection Of Unreleased and Rare Material 1967-1976 was originally released in 1976 after Richard and his wife Linda announced their retirement from the music business. As the album's title suggests, this is a collection of unreleased recordings made over an eight-year period which spans Richard's early years recording with the Fairport Convention as well as the time he spent performing and recording as a duo with wife Linda.

Thankfully, this did not transpire to be Richard's final piece of recorded work, but did become an essential record to fans of Richard's work giving an alternate perspective on his early career. Following an almost two-year hiatus, Richard and Linda returned and released First Light (Richard and Linda Thompson album) in 1978 and Richard has remained a prolific songwriter and one of the most respected British folk artists of all time releasing, to date, 22 studio albums and 14 live albums.
