Richard Thompson - Beatnik Walking

Never really got the adulation of Richard Thompson. I could tell he was one hell of a guitarist, knew he was a major figure in British folk but - with the exception of 1952 Vincent Black Lightning and some of the 'Shoot Out The Lights' album - never heard any actual songs. How do you interest me in Richard Thompson then? Enlist the brilliant Jeff Tweedy of Wilco to produce his next album. Which makes me listen to the song long enough to know I love it. Clear, sparkling, a wonderful sound to ground Thompson's sonorous yet plaintive vocals. Think I may have just been converted (and obviously the guitar work is immaculate)
