Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Richard & Linda Thompson/Richard Thompson: Richard Thompson (vocals, guitar, dulcimer, accordion); Linda Thompson (vocals).
  • Additional personnel: Stephen Corbett, Brian Jones (cornet); Stephen Barnett , Mark Cutts (trombone); Phil Goodwin (tuba); Pete Zorn (bass instrument, background vocals); Dave Pegg (bass instrument); Dave Mattacks (drums); Clive Gregson (background vocals).
  • The world's most underrated songwriter, although Thompson must tire of hearing it so often. Together with his ex-wife Linda they made a series of quite brilliant albums that garnered heaps of praise and minimal sales. This is another slice of perfection that veers from whimsical fun in 'Wall Of Death' to desperate emotions in 'Shoot Out the Lights', which features the definitive Thompson guitar solo. Critics have often been accused of hyping artists, but try as they may, they can't do it with this one. Time will tell but this album should be in many more homes.

Alternative Press (5/01, p.104) - Included in AP's "10 Essential Breakup Albums" - "...Stark, personally charged folk-rock. Husband and wife take turns singing about what you'd expect - emotional pain, anger and dread."

Record Collector (magazine) (p.100) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "The tensions brought out an intensity in Linda's singing and a ferocity in Richard's playing....Fueled by the friction, the performances are top notch..."
