Folk Rocks 

Wednesday, Sep 5 2007
Richard Thompson is a legend. From seducing the entire world with "I Want to See the Bright Lights Tonight" with then-wife Linda in 1974 to his current solo CD, Sweet Warrior, Thompson's barely-underground fame only swells over time. File him with fellow OG folkies like Joan Baez and Greg Brown. He continues to do stuff like get named one of Rolling Stone magazine's top 20 guitarists of all time, but he first made a name for himself as a founding member of the ur-British folk group Fairport Convention. He's also incredibly prolific, releasing an album almost every year between 1960 and now. Scream for the old stuff like "Night Comes In," and he'll be happy to introduce you to new stuff like "Take Care the Road You Choose."
