  1. Not sure if any of the original posters will see this given that this thread is nearly 2 years old, but... IMO, Richard Thompson is one of the 5 most underappreciated artists in the history of modern music. He is unrivaled when it comes to his combination of singing / songwriting / and guitar playing. His guitar playing is so good that an argument could be made that his is the best ever, and that includes Hendrix. Anyone looking to find more of his music should start with his website, www.richardthompson-music.com. Nearly all of his albums are available there. There are also many videos of him on youtube. Good songs to start with are the aforementioned 1952 Vincent Black Lightning - which has got to be the best motorcycle themed song ever written. Also check out, in no particular order: Beeswing I Feel So Good Turning of the Tide Crawl Back (Under My Stone) Walking the Long Miles Home Keep Your Distance Hard On Me - Live version is one of the best guitar solos you will ever hear I Want to See the Bright Lights Tonight A Heart Needs A Home Tear Stained Letter Read About Love When the Spell is Broken Walking on a Wire Dad's Gonna Kill Me Persuaision - there's a good video of this one on youtube that he sings with his son (Teddy Thompson - who people should also check out) Cooksferry Queen There are many, many more - his catalog is extremely deep. Again, there is tons of good info on his website, www.richardthompson-music.com. He tours fairly regularly, and puts on an amazing show. I would encourage anyone even remotely interested in him to check him out live. Cheers, and happy listening.
