In praise of Richard Thompson

Last week I downloaded Richard Thompson's latest album from Electric Amazon. I was trying to remember how many times I have seen him play. I think I saw him twice, when I used to live in the USA

I really like his new work. I just like the sound of the guitar. The one song I had some slight political problems with was the song: "stuck on the treadmill." This song is about working in a boring factory job. Only an artist would complain about factory work of the factories are shutting and everyone either wants a job, or is selling food on minim wage.

If you don't know his work, you can watch the video below.
