Support 88Nine And This Artist:
From 1973 to 1982, British folk legend Richard Thompson
(having quit Fairport Convention
in 1971) recorded as a duo with his wife Linda Thompson
. This period saw a great amount of critical praise for Richard's songwriting and Linda's voice, though not much popular success. Following their divorce, both pursued solo careers. The Thompsons recorded three albums I Want To See The Bright Lights Tonight
(1974), Hokey Pokey
(1975) and Pour Down Like Silver
(1975) before they decided to leave the music business and moved to a Sufi commune in East Anglia.
