Richard ThompsonMirror Blue ... CD
Capitol, 1994. Used ... $1.99
A well-remembered set from Richard Thompson's Capitol years – a record that's awash in that amazing and unique vocal style that only seemed to get better as the decades moved on! Thompson's got this mature quality here that's wonderful – maybe understating some elements that would have been more foregrounded in earlier years – but also completely confident in the way he handles his guitar with all these unusual little sonic traces – subtle currents of darkness that are used perfectly alongside the lyrics, and in way that still has Thompson in territory that nobody else can touch! Titles include "For The Sake Of Mary", "The Way That It Shows", "MGB GT", "Mascara Tears", "Fast Food", "Shane & Dixie", "King Of Bohemia", "Mingus Eyes", and "Beeswing". CD

Lucky ThompsonLucky Strikes ... CD
Prestige/Victor (Japan), 1964. Used ... $24.99
One of the gems that Lucky Thompson cut on his return to the US in the mid 60s – and one of the few albums from that time that got wide release! The album's a laidback quartet session that has Lucky blowing both tenor and his new love, soprano sax, with a group that includes Hank Jones on piano, Richard Davis on bass, and Connie Kay on drums. Thompson's playing is a masterpiece in understatement – with these sly lines, especially on soprano sax, that really set things off beautifully – grabbing you by surprise and holding you rapt, in ways that remind us a bit of Pony Poindexter during the same time. Titles include "Mumba Neua", "Invitation", "Prey Loot", "Fly With The Wind", and "Mid Nite Oil". CD

Fairport ConventionLiege & Lief ... CD
A&M, 1970. Used ... $5.99
A record that really has Fairport Convention knocking it out of the park – making a bold turn towards British traditional music, but in a way that imbues these relics with a whole new life of their own! The album came at a key turning point – after an accident that took one of their members, and which almost saw the group disband – but instead turn towards the past for even deeper inspiration than some of their contemporaries, whom they'd covered on other records – at a level that seems to set Sandy Denny free into this sublime territory of her own! Denny's vocals are incredible – like a thing unlocked from some ancient vault – and they're given this wonderful focus through the growing complexity of Richard Thompson's guitar work, and the understated brilliance of Ashley Hutchings' bass – both of which bring in these modal inflections that are very 60s, and hardly conceived of as accompaniment with the original tunes. The result is tremendous – tunes that are completely transformed, as a touchstone for generations. Titles include "Matty Groves", "Reynardine", "Come All Ye", "The Deserter", "Tam Lin", and "Crazy Man Michael". CD
