2015 Honorable Pick 15: Richard Thompson!

Richard Thompson: Still (Fantasy, 2015).

I have no trouble recommending this record from Richard Thompson with the caveat that after you check out the above average songs with virtuosic guitar playing you then go and check out ‘I Wanna See the Bright Lights Tonight’ from 1973.

And if the track ‘The Cavalry Cross’ doesn’t almost make you cry then your a dried up heartless asshole.

It’s a little bit of a tough comparison because Linda Thompson adds a whole another dimension to ‘I Wanna See the Bright Lights’ with her singing, but the point is folks should keep that record going.  And this one.
