Ana Richard Thompson: Your Favourite Song? (95* d) RE: Richard Thompson: Your Favourite Song? 05 May 00


"'You open your throat and nothing happens' The medical term is hysterical dysphonia, which is the phenomenon that silenced Linda Thompson in 1988...There's not much you can do about it,' she says. 'It started 20 odd years ago soon after I married Richard, when I was pregnant for the first time...I guess what ever was bothering me went straight to my throat. So after years of trying I just gave up' " - notes from "Dreams fly Away" - a History of Linda Thompson. I don't know if things were exaggerated or not, but I can only imagine how distressing and sad that experience must have been. Great to hear that she is recording again. Ana
