    Fairport Convention Performing East-West

    I imagine only Richard Thompson and Fairport Convention enthusiasts would be able to address the question. Had a conversation recently where it was stated that Fairport Convention performed the Butterfield Blues Band's East-West a number of times in the early days of the band. Someone claimed to have heard a version, but could not recall where. After some research, I was only able to find one reference in a setlist. Apparently it was never officially released and my search through grey area lists also turned up nothing. Has anyone ever encountered a recording of such performance? I for one am very curious to hear their take on this piece.

    Are you on the Talk Awhile forum? I haven't checked in there in years, but if it's still a thing, someone there could answer your question.
