Default Richard Thompson

Currently obsessed with this guy.

Everything he had done seems to be fantastic, 'real' lyrics, about real life, something that everyone can respond to, more recently listening to his work with Linda Thompson.

I particularly like Rumour and Sigh, and Action Packed: The Best of the Capitol Years, which has alot to choose from. I've heard a few from You? Me? Us?, which is next on my wish list.

Any fellow fans?

What a voice. I mean really it's personal enough to make you crap your pants. I need to get an album all I have are random songs.

You should be intrigued!

It really is very personal.

A great tidal wave of emotions, is the only way I can explain it.

I don't care for Coyote much, its just kind of, meh. The whole howling part is pretty lame too. His voice isn't that capturing either.

Coyote was for a soundtracl as far as I know? May be wrong.

Doesn't represent him very well though.
