Thread Name: Richard Thompson: Your Favourite Song?
Subject: RE: Richard Thompson: Your Favourite Song?
Has to be 1952 VBL although Beeswing runs a very close second.Then again, Waltzing's for Dreamers is magic too. Blast it! the man's just too darned talented.

As a fellow Vincenteer, I disagree with Fionn to whom VBL was a disappointment...trouble is you have to allow the guy a bit of licence when it comes to the nerdy bits about 'bikes. It's gone down extremely well with the Vincent Owners Club both here and in America and quite a few of these greybeards have been turned on to other RT stuff as a result. I have a recording of the BBC interview he gave at the time of the release of Rumour and Sigh...he was very well informed about the Vincent and its mythical status.

Stop now Jon lest ye become nerdy yourself.
