One Of The Best Days At a Previous Job

Brought Richard Thompson  into one afternoon several years ago. Goose pimples were the paycheck. He’s roaming the country now, touring, among other things, the tunes from his upcoming Dream Attic (Shout! Factory). Here are the dates. What’s your fave RT tune? Mine may be “The Poor Ditching Boy,” or “I Misunderstood.”


Robbie Fulks, “Ben” (Bloodshot)

Theo Bleckmann, I Dwell In Possibility (Winter & Winter)

Bobby Previte, Claude’s Late Morning (Gramavision)

Kaiser/Noyes/Park, Invite The Spirit (Celluloid)

Jack DeJohnette New Directions, In Europe (ECM)

Charles Lloyd, Mirror (ECM)

Mary Halvorson, Saturn Sings (Firehouse 12)

Michael Jackson, “The Girl Is Mine” (Columbia)

Louis Armstrong, “Ory’s Creole Trombone” (Columbia)

Emmylou Harris, “Feeling Single, Seeing Double” (Warner Bros.)

Porter Wagoner, “Crumbs From Another Man’s Table” (RCA)

Larry Goldings/Harry Allen, When Larry Met Harry (Cafe Society)
