What are the best Richard Thompson Cds featuring him mainly on acoustic guitar and vocals.

I have one of him solo live that is great. I think it is called Small Town Romance.

I'd love to find some more of his cds that feature just him on acoustic guitar and vocals.

try "Celtschmerz" -- an acoustic live album from '98, available at RT shows but probably somewhere on the Web too. the Cd is wonderful!

I have quite a collection of RTs CDs and if I had to choose one, I would pick "Rumor and Sigh" which has some of the most requested tracks at concerts etc. There is a good compilation which has just come out although I don't know the name of it (having got most of it on the original CDs).It owuld be on his web site.

Flypaper also handles a CD called 'Live at Crawley' recorded in 1993 with Danny Thompson. It's well worth having if you love acoustic RT.

I just learned 52 Vincent Black Lightning. I definitely will be getting some of the acoustic Richard Thompson Cds suggested by you guys.

Thanks, Terry
