Out Of Print 2007 2LP 180gm Original Housed In A Gatefold Cover. Both LPs Appear Glossy, Unplayed. "Like A Musical Old Faithful, Richard Thompson Dependably Spews An Album’s Worth Of Inspired Material At Regular Intervals. He’s Been Doing This Since 1972’s Henry The Human Fly (Island ILPS 9197), Which Is So Deserving Of A High Quality All-Analog Reissue. Perhaps Thompson Would Disagree, But His Basic Approach To Songwriting, Singing And Playing Hasn’t Changed All That Much, Nor Did It Need To. Like James Taylor, He Arrived On The Scene In Fairport Convention As One Of Those Rare, Fully Formed Talents With A Unique, Easily Identifiable Guitar Sound And Vocal Style. Age Has Diminished Neither His Manual Dexterity Nor His Vocal Chords's Suppleness. He Sounds Remarkably Unchanged By Time. While The Quality Of His Work Rarely Varies And The Vibe Remains Constant, Thompson Does Mess Around With Attitude, Moving From Introspective, Folky Balladry And Arrangement- Complexity, To Plain Old Rocking Hard, Which Is What He Mostly Delivers Here, Most Of Which Is Simply Arranged For Bass, Guitar And Drums. This Album Is One Of Thompson’s Most Focused And Inspired Works In Quite Some Time. Given His Dependable Output That’s Saying Something! The Songwriting Is His Strongest In Memory, Both Lyrically And Especially Melodically. Judged By Today’s Standards This Is A Great Recording. Judged By Today’s Musical Standards It’s A Masterpiece. Judged By Yesterday’s It Still Is! Highest Recommendation!" - Michael Fremer
