Manchester 1975 Live – The Songs From
(Mono) NAS_004

This is a fairly short 47 minute CD of 16 songs from a show at the Free Trade Hall Manchester during 1975. A clearly semi intoxicated Vivian started the proceedings, but his state of sobriety didn’t detract from his ability to put on a raucous show.
The unused theme from That’ll Be The Day, Real Leather Jacket, gets an airing as does a scurrilous ditty about Princess Anne. Worth the price of ticket.

Sir Henry: Live NAS_006

This is a completely spoken word record. When appearing live Vivian would entertain the audience between numbers with extracts of his Rawlinson End saga. The stories featured in four performances during 1972, 1975, and 1991 have been cleverly edited together into complete monologues.
Additionally found here is Vivian’s estuary version of ‘The Bible In Modern Translation’ and the 1971 Peel radio session Rawlinson End.
