Serpent's Tears

by Richard Thompson

supported by
There's a similarity in song writing between Richard Thompson and Hugh Cornwell which maybe isn't surprising as they went to the same school at the same time, although Thompson is older.
Due to Thompson's association with John French of Captain Beefheart & The Magic Band I searched for his work on the Bandcamp app. French, Thompson and Cornwell all have albums on the app which I'm very pleased about. Only Thompson has released contemporary albums, much to his credit. Favorite track: When The Saints Rise Out Of Their Graves.
Bohemian Square

Bohemian Square When the history of the Hallmark Channel is chronicled, there will be unanimous opinion that its existence peaked with a reference in a Richard Thompson lyric. Favorite track: The Big Love Scene.

jpowell736 Richard Thompson has stayed incredibly busy during the pandemic producing a string of brilliant acoustic albums. This one is highly recommended. The songwriting and guitar playing are quintessential Thompson. If you like his music, you cannot go wrong.
