A slow song by Richard in 3/4 time, on which he plays dulcimer while Sandy is singing as brilliant as ever. This was released as B-side of the single Si Tu Dois Partir / Genesis Hall and on the album Unhalfbricking and on the double CD compilation Meet On The Ledge: The Classic Years 1967-1975. It was later included in Richard Thompson’s 3 CD set, Watching the Dark.
Richard Thompson released a solo version of this song on Small Town Romance. A Fairport live recording from Cropredy 1983 with Cathy LeSurf was released on the cassette The Boot - 1983 Fairport Reunion and on the Fairport unConventioNal 4CD set. Another - 1997 - Cropredy version with Vikki Clayton is on The Cropredy Box.
June Tabor sang Genesis Hall unaccompanied on the Richard Thompson tribute CD, Beat the Retreat.
