His new album is excellent, Sweet Warrior.  Great song on Iraq: "Dad's Gonna Kill Me."

Thompson is back in great form and highly recommend for Thompson fans.

I just heard Fergie's new song "big girls don't cry"...not sure if that is the correct title.  If it isn't dont yell at me!  I have to say I like this song very much.  I don't usually care for that style of music but this one hit home.....

Suns out, clothes on the line, drinking pepsi one....wished for something else but that will have to do for now!  Ma Kettle LIVES

Who is Thompson?
Richard Thompson is freaking God, my friend.  He's been around since the 60's (Fairport Convention), released, with his then wife Linda, two of the greatest albums of the 70's (Shoot Out the Lights, I Want to See the Bright Lights Tonight) and has put out tons of mostly brilliant, occasionally not quite so brilliant stuff since.

As for his general lyrical out look.... see quote from Row Boys Row below.

End of the Rainbow

- Richard Thompson

I feel for you, you little horror
Safe at your mother’s breast
No lucky break for you around the corner
‘Cos your father is a bully
And he thinks that you’re a pest
And your sister, she’s no better than a whore

Life seems so rosy in the cradle
but I’ll be a friend, I’ll tell you what’s in store
There’s nothing at the end of the rainbow
There’s nothing to grow up for anymore

Tycoons and barrow boys will rob you
And throw you on the side
And all because they love themselves sincerely
And the man holds a bread-knife
Up to your throat, is four feet wide
And he’s anxious just to show you what it’s for

Your mother works so hard to make you happy
But take a look outside the nursery door
There’s nothing at the end of the rainbow
There’s nothing to grow up for anymore
 
All the sad and empty faces
That pass you on the street
All running in their sleep, all in a dream
Every loving handshake
Is just another man to beat
How your heart aches just to cut him to the core

Life seems so rosy in the cradle
but I’ll be a friend, I’ll tell you what’s in store
There’s nothing at the end of the rainbow
There’s nothing to grow up for anymore

Though most people will tell you his main claim to fame is that he is one of the best guitarists anywhere, in a british folk/blues/polka style.

Thanks, I was thinking Thompson Twins:

Like the lyrics, but I like to take a more cosmic view of how lousy people are, but I suppose he's really talking about a moment, and wishing it weren't true for the child, the disappointment, to see, though, is a nice opportunity.

The double cd Best of Richard and Linda Thompson is very good.  "The Great Valerio" is one of my favorite songs.

I remember being very disappointed in Denver, when I stopped off there on the way out to San Francisco, tracing the route of Kerouac in On The Road.  This was back in the 80s.  Boulder was a much more lively place at the time.  Great radio station, playing full sides of albums.  Tea for the Tillerman and Joe Jackson's Night and Day as I remember.  I lost the signal all too quickly as I headed into the Rockies.

Mine may be "Wall of Death."  He does a nice job with those circus motifs.

What ever happened to Linda, anyway?  I know, I know; google.

Welcome, by the way.  Long time no.

Hey, whiskey.  According to a bio at All Music Guide, Linda lost her voice for about 10 years due to a stress disorder.  I haven't heard her recordings for Rounder Records.
