Ah. Some bossa nova sounds around 56:50 on Night and Day. Dont often hear them from him. And what a great vocalist. He's at his best accompanied by a female vocalist and this one is particularly good IMHO. Expressive, not showy, not shrill, and with a great range in tone and volume.

I've been an RT follower for more than 50 years: first saw him with FC and have seen him dozens of times since - including this incarnation when it came to Glasgow Royal Concert Hall. Great to listen to this post (for which I'm truly grateful) and wonderful to take in more changes in the set list. This is music, and musicality, at its entertaining, liberating, charming and soul-filling best. And educational too: I know nothing more productive of humility (which we could do with more of) than to try and replicate - not 'match', mind you, just common replication - what RT is doing here. And, if you get anywhere close, by the time you've got sort-of-proximate, he'll have moved on (and taken the goalposts with him)!

He had a bit of a cheek nicking Billy Connolly's joke from 1985, 'Partick Thistle (it originally was) nil'. Enjoyed the first half of the show but it all seems to go astray once they hit the twentieth century. Never mind that Yankee smooth jazz, where are Vera Lynn, Elvis and the Beatles? I mean, why play Squeeze's Tempted (conspicuous by its lack of audience response) rather than the similar but much better Dear Prudence? It's like he decided he had to go quirky just when he most needed to be representative.

Many thanks, RT is a modest genius. I've been lucky enough to see him with the 1000 years of Pop accompanied by the superb Judith Owen and Debra Dobkin on their tour in the UK as well as many other gigs, solo and with various excellent bands. In these troubled times, a delight to re-visit his tremendous back catalogue. A cricket fan too!

I'll be back to listen to this, but this reminds me of Taylor Mac's 24-hour production that's been held in Philly every late spring(trying to remember the host).And that only covers 1776--. Like that Thompson doesn't always go for the obvious choices.

Tht is one of the amazing things about him. (OF course she didnt write it). He goes for the truth, not what is currently popular or what is not hip. Several times musicians have told or shown me that a particular tune, by a pop artist I automatically despise, is very good, & or has deep roots.

Chances are very good that people will buy more of his music and maybe DVDs because of the exposure. I've never heard of the singer and now I'm looking for more of her. This is also far and away the best version of Summer is Acomng In (Modern Spelling) I've ever heard and maybe more people will listen to Cole Porter. He's great partly becuase first and foremost he cares about the music.

I saw this show in Brighton and really enjoyed it - it was my first experience of RT live and I was initially disappointed when booking that he wasn't going to be doing his own work. I have now seen him several times, including the wonderful 70th birthday celebration at the Albert Hall recently. He never fails to be wonderful and seems to be improving with age (if it's possible to improve upon perfection - lol!!). I seriously resent the interviewer's comments at the beginning of this video, where he implies that RT does not play for his audience but for himself (and that an RT concert is something to be endured rather than enjoyed: well maybe if you have a very basic, childlike musical taste). In fact, nothing could be further from the truth: RT always puts in a stellar performance -we recently saw him solo acoustic at Sidmouth in a marquee down near the seafront in the middle of a really bad storm. He gave us three encores including the wonderful song My Enemy (new to me) accompanied by his new partner Zara Phillips whilst the tent rattled and blew around us and we all feared we might be literally blown away.

It's difficult to envision Shenandoah as a sea chantey, or having evolved from a sea chantey, because those were originally meant to be work songs with a rhythmic call and response, useful for getting groups of people to work together as a synchronized team while loading or unloading ships, raising sails and making adjustments to them, Etc..

Hearing/watching this makes me realize the longstanding truth of at least one (maybe the only one) of my opinions formed 40 years ago. Richard Thompson is the greatest living guitarist, in any music ever composed for songs written in English. There may be better guitarists in countries whose music is inaccessible to me, for reasons either linguistic or political (which can usually be cross indexed), but when it comes to music written for the same language I write this in, Thompson is the greatest. Of course other opinions may exist, for which I'd have to use the time-tested phrase, "consider the source."

I just saw Richard Thompson this weekend in Phila PA USA at the Keswick. He is still inspiring in fantastic voice, humor and a real showman. Technically to say the least and new material is superb and poignant. Not surprisingly many of the Audience were not aware of his superior schredding Ability. He remains one of the unsung guitar masters to be reckoned with!

The Edmonton Folk Festival! I was working in western Canada and attended all three days of the festival in 1992. Best music festival I've ever been at, and I've been to more than a few. David Lindley and Ry Cooder played duets. Martin Simpson, another guitarist in Richard Thompson's league, was there, participating in slide guitar workshops and a solo performance and a duet with a flamenco guitarist from Chile. Alias Ron Kavana was on fire, an incredible performance by this little-known Irish singer-songwriter and bandleader. We all cheered and clapped for over 20 minutes trying to get them out for an encore but the festival promoters had not left sufficient time and they were already running late for the next band. There was Bluegrass and Country, 2 bands from Africa fiddle workshops, Middle Eastern music and Bedouin chants, Blues, soul and Rock, a healthy example of everything. Good food too, incredibly well-organized, and we didn't have any drunken brawls or other trouble. Someday I hope to attend it again, with my wife.
