A bit late.......,
This review is from: Beat The Retreat: Songs By Richard Thompson (Audio CD)
I bought this when it first came out in the 90's. An excellent album of superb songs from an insufficiently recognised genius. The versions here are varied in style, from thrash to folk. I really like the Bob Mould and 5 Blind Boys contributions, less keen on the folky ones, but that's just me. They are all good to excellent; if you fancy a bit of a surprise treat just buy it. It's very cheap, there is much to like and it's a good intro to the dark world of RT if you've never heard his stuff.
