Richard Thompson


Aladdin Theater (map) Southeast
Fri., May 10, 8 p.m. 2013 21+


Armed with a stripped-down electric trio, a peerless back catalog, and a faithful army of beret-wearing fans, living legend Richard Thompson returns to the Aladdin Theater in support of his new one, Electric. The English-born guitarist/songwriter remains one of the best guitarist/songwriters anywhere (English or otherwise), and he's one of the only musicians with a discography stretching all the way back to the '60s that doesn't have a single rough patch, quality-wise. Whether Electric will someday become as dear to my heart as Fairport Convention's What We Did on Our Holidays or Richard and Linda Thompson's I Want to See the Bright Lights Tonight is probably not too likely, but it's yet another welcome collection of the man's incredible songwriting and playing—more than enough for me to give it my wholehearted recommendation.
