Music today has been the third album by Richard and Linda Thompson, Pour Down Like Silver (1975). I could have picked more recognised albums by the duo than this one but this one has Dimming Of The Day. It also has For Shame Of Doing Wrong, The Poor Boy Is Taken Away, Night Comes In and Beat The Retreat. Restrained, contemplative and recorded during the couple’s Sufi period under restrictions that make you wonder how it may not have happened and could have been the end of Richard Thompson’s musical career. It might be best explained by reading the Wikipedia page. I’m a big fan of most anything by Richard Thompson, singer, songwriter, lyricist and amazing guitar player. Unfortunately, with so many great albums I wouldn’t have a clue as to tell you where to start.
