I was fortunate enough to catch one of the gigs on the current tour for this album, and I think the recording does a great job of capturing the chops and energy of a live full-band RT show. In my opinion this is the best LP that he's put out since 'Mock Tudor.' I keep playing it over and over. The extended guitar solo at the end of 'If Love Whispers Your Name' is worth the price of the album by itself - what a great way to cap it off! But my favorite cut overall is 'Demons in Her Dancing Shoes.'Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Richard Thompson still plays a mean guitar on these track recorded on tour. However, something is missing. I think it may be hooks. None of these songs grabs me like older fare like When The Spell is Broken or Hand of Kindness did. Perhaps more listens will change my mind but I doubt it. Too many numbers seem to repeat themes RT has visited before. It may be (I hope not) that The Old Kit Bag was Thompson's last truly great album.Was this review helpful?
