June Tabor/Martin Simpson: Strange Affair


Wonderful interpretation of one of Richard Thompson’s finest songs. From the 1980 album A Cut Above.

  1. I love June Tabor’s voice, have all her albums, and have seen her live many times. However, Linda Thompson sings this song better than her. Generally, some of June’s many versions of Richard Thompson songs are a bit it iffy. I’m not sure why. The worst is her version of ‘Night Comes In’ with the Oyster Band. Her version of ‘Beating the Retreat’ that you have on the site (from the RT tribute Album) is very good.
