Release date: 1982
A collection combining two spoken word albums by singer, poet, writer and director Richard Jobson, both originally released by Les Disques du Crépuscule.
From 1983, 10.30 On A Summer Night is Richard's own adaption of texts from the classic novel by French author Marguerite Duras, and includes the long and haunting tone poem The Kiss, the Dance and the Death. On this recording he is accompanied by Belgian pianist Cecile Bruynoghe.
Recorded a year earlier, An Afternoon In Company (1982) collects 20 original poems by Richard, with musical backing by luminaries such as Vini Reilly (Durutti Column), Steven Brown and Blaine L. Reininger (Tuxedomoon), Wim Mertens and Virginia Astley.
The CD booklet features the texts of the poems, photos and a biographical note.
