Richard Thompson - Sunset Song
Went with Kit to the first (our first this Summer) concert in the lovely Botanic Gardens. It was Loudon Wainwright III and Richard Thompson. I'm done with Wainwright. Not clever enough in my book. I'm beginning to like his son Rufus (dog's name) better anyway. Thompson blew him off the stage as well. I think Thompson has forgotten how to play more than loud mouth Loudon ever knew. His songs are better too. There is one, Sunset Song, that is just lovely--words, tune, guitar work. Nearly a perfect song. Highlight of the 2 and a half hour concert. See for youself.
