5.0 out of 5 stars This is Teddy not daddy, 27 May 2006
This review is from: Separate Ways (Audio CD)
I saw Teddy Thompson at the Wedgwood Rooms in Portsmouth. He's charming, witty, quirky, and above all he can sing - the words come from his heart. 'Separate Ways' the album's title and you know he's been through it, stood out in the rain and waited. 'I should get up', how many of us have been there, fighting the blankets knowing that we ought to rise but wanting the comfortable sanctuary. Insistent, however, there is no sanctuary here, we must get up. With no backing except his guitar 'Sorry to see me go', perhaps cornily, he sang this as an encore at Portsmouth, is simple and soulful. Track 4, `I wish it was over'; haunting, you know he doesn't really mean it. Not all the songs however are about lost love, 'Everybody move it', this is a party, no frowns allowed and I defy anybody to sit still for `That's enough out of you'; superb guitarist by the way. I love the richness of `Altered State' with the guitar of you-know-who in the background, which brings me on to a plea. Please people, stop, referring to RT in your write-ups. This is Teddy not daddy.
