A wicked Richard Thompson show!!!


Recommended Posts

This is a great show from a really excellent musician!

Takes a bit to get used to the vocals maybe but he is just a treat!

I've had the luck to see Richie a few times now and he never fails to blow me away!

Great solo acoutic performance at this great old hall in southern New Jersey. The PA was not particularly

loud so I had to ride the mics hot. It's still a great listen fom a true MASTER!

I had help on the setlist. If there's anything wrong let me know and I'll correct the listing.


Here is the torrent.

p.s. I know this isn't the torrent forum, but some things are too good to be missed!

Put him on a list with the likes of Dylan and Neil Young, McCartney/Lennon, whatever. His body of work is stunning. He is to the British roots-music tradition what Robbie Robertson or Garcia/Hunter are to the American roots-music tradition. And he's a modern songwriter as important and as worhty of investigation as Elvis Costello, Warren Zevon (RIP) or John Hiatt.

Don't even get me going on his guitar playing. Even if he'd never written a song in his life, he'd be in my Hall Of Fame just for his musicianship alone.

Mike F of BNB - this is the guy I was drooling to you about at CTMF last June. I don;t know you too well brother, but any guy with open-minded tastes leaning towards the likes of Wilco and the Band, and who can get into ferocious guitar playing will dig Richard Thompson. Check him out!

Also a founding member of Fairport Convention, who are still going strong (although Richard Thompson left around 1970, methinks):


Look at all that hair!!

Led Zeppelin really liked these guys (and girl) - that's Sandy Denny, Fairport's lead singer, that you hear on "The Battle of Evermore". And the Thompson-fronted version of Fairport opened for Zep on one of their early American tours, too (maybe '69 or '70?).
