Thread Name: Richard Thompson: Your Favourite Song?
Subject: RE: Richard Thompson: Your Favourite Song?
For anyone starting a RT collection I'd recommend Rumor and Sigh. It's probably his most commercial sounding recording to date but, to me anyway, it displays his strongest songwriting. Also he has a pretty good collection out called Waiting for the Dark which spans his whole career. It's also hard to go wrong with I Want to See the Bright Lights Tonight, Shoot out the Lights or Full House (Fairport) or Fairport Chronicles (a collection). Ah hell, just buy em all.
