Richard Thompson Live From Austin, TX on 180g 2LP
On-the-air since 1976, Austin City Limits has featured
more than 500 different regional and internationally acclaimed artists
on its stage, presenting the best of America's music from country, blues
and folk to rock 'n' roll, bluegrass and zydeco.
It was especially gratifying on that warm July night in 2001 when Richard Thompson graced the Austin City Limits stage, as the eclectic yet elusive tunesmith from West London hardly ever makes it to Texas. Best of all, he brought along long-time bassist Danny Thompson and drummer Michael Jerome.
Without dwelling on his excellent fret work (Rolling Stone ranks him in the top 20 of the world’s 100 greatest guitarists,) Thompson also has a unique way of writing contemporary songs that draw upon deep traditional genres, whether rock, folk or Celtic. This thrilling performance demonstrates his skill clearly! Gatefold double 180g vinyl from New West Records.
