Hey, it’s about time for Richard Thompson to release a new album. There’s a sample song (in WMA format, boo hiss) here. (Thanks to Jim Henley.) The album looks pretty stripped down, just him and Danny Thompson and Michael Jerome, who was the drummer on his last tour. I saw one of those shows, and I thought Jerome was really good. The first track is titled “Gethsemane” — I can’t wait.
Hm. Actually, it’s out in the UK and Europe. Surely I have some adoring European readers? HEDGE!
