I hate to admit that I knew nothing of Richard Thompson until my guitar instructor himself a singer songwriter and performing musician gave me two of his CDs After one listen I was hooked Then he lent me this book and my fascination deepened to well aweIn what seems today to be an era when musicians first and foremost want to become famous and yes make lots of money I was struck by Thompson's willingness to be under the radar or less engaged privately with his music and his ability to make itlots of italong with his noted mastery of both acoustic and electric guitar playing He is humble shy seemingly dark but often very funny with a turn of phrase and immensely talented having had to learn how ultimately to become a solo performer and liking itWhat the book did for me was to offer a peek at how a heralded songwriter comes to be Thompson a British folk and rock musician listened to a broad and deep range of music particularly the traditional music of the Scots Irish and Brits which is embedded in so much of his music But his range was wide his talent the envy of so many music greats his career a wild and sometimes disappointing ride his life fascinating and his love of writing and playing undisputed This was a great read by a writer who clearly had a sense of Thompson and the times It holds a plethora of uotations from the author's interviews with Thompson and those important to his life and career I was truly taken by it all

Aping hours of interviews and running down all the reuisite sources The result is this lively Life of Thompson which includes an airtight discography and some goofy photos that only a fearless man would allow to be published. 25 stars I really like Richard Thompson's music and enjoyed reading this However it did feel a bit intrusive Maybe it's better just to listen to the music
