Acoustic Classics Vol. II


This second volume Richard Thompson has recorded of acoustic cover versions of his own songs works better than the first, perhaps because the songs collected here are for the most part more contemplative than on the preceding album. There are songs of farewell “Meet On The Ledge”, of madness and violence “Crazy Man Michael”, “Guns Are The Tongues”, of betrayal “Gethsemane”. A slow extended version of “Pharaoh” draws parallels between the Middle Kingdom of Egypt and present-day England that cut more deeply today even than in 1988. Here it sounds like Thompson’s best song ever. Perhaps it is.
