I just got back from seeing Richard Thompson at the Minnesota Zoo
. I've had a couple of his albums for years -- his Watching the Dark
collection has been one of my favorites
for years. I thought for a while that with a set like that (and a couple of his other albums through the years, like Shoot out the Lights
, Rumor & Sigh
, and Pour Down Like Silver
) would be relatively sufficient, but I was wrong. Fantastic show -- and even the songs I didn't know were fantastic. Must get more albums, I think.
I found a recent interview
while doing a post-concert search...he doesn't have a website yet, but something to keep an eye out for.
and it was a chance to get back to the zoo, like I wanted to
, and get a good view of a bunch of exhibits, which I haven't seen in years and years.
But now, I must sleep.
