I love both of these songs. The first time I saw Richard Thompson live (with Danny Thompson on bass), he played '1952 VincentBlack Lightning' and I thought it was the most amazing thing I'd ever heard. 'Al Bowlley's in Heaven' is a tribute to a whole generation, my parents' generation, and such an eloquent evocation of what it meant to go through that conflict, and what a price they paid.
Can't choose, so I'll abstain, and be equally happy whoever wins.

1952 Vincent Black Lightning.

Just the best (folk) guitarist this country has ever produced.
