A great contemporary folk album,
This review is from: Front Parlour Ballads (Audio CD)
As some of the other reviews indicate, this album splits RT fans down the middle- those who prefer the Ferringtoncaster'd rock with the Richard Thompson Band, and those who have an interest in or appreciation of English folk music. I hadn't heard RT, other than as a part of Fairport, until I heard an advance of "My Soul, My Soul" about six months before this album was released. I listened to it on repeat for three days. In the period between my hearing that track and the release of the album, I became an obsessive fan and bought everything RT-related I could lay my hands on, all in one swift motion. This is still probably my favourite of his albums.
