A Well Kept Secret: Richard Thompson

Well hello there! We’re back from a most refreshing vacation in the greater London area. While there, our host Magic Fingers introduced me to a fantastic musician: Richard Thompson.

Prior, I had heard some minor radio hits of his — genre “I Feel So Good”, “Misunderstood”, “Crawl Back” and, notably, Thompson’s Britney Spears cover Oops, I Did It Again.

Tip of the iceberg.

The way this guy plays masters the guitar is just unbelievable.
No effects — nothing but Naked Fender:

Thompson started out as part of the legendary English band Fairport Convention, but went his own way soon thereafter. He is I guess, to that formation, what Neil Young is to CSN&Y.

One fantastic musician. Do check out his tunes if you hadn’t already.

Wait — I’m preaching to the choir, right?
