Album: Richard Thompson, Live at the BBC (Universal)

Click to follow

Three CDs and one DVD covering RT's post-Fairport solo career, as performed for the BBC.

Somewhat overdue, you might say. Disc one covers the Richard & Linda decade of the 1970s; disc two is the angry 1980s; everything on disc three comes from the new millennium. And while the Linda stuff conveys the most pathos – "Dimming of the Day" from 1982 is a questionable inclusion – the package as a whole will be welcome to those of us who can't get enough.
