Album of the Week.

Richard Thompson - Electric RICHARD Thompson has been making music for more than four decades and has hit his musical mojo one more time with this cracker of an album. The Notting Hill-born musician - who has been honoured with an Ivor Novello award, a BBC Radio lifetime achievement gong and the Orville H Gibson award for best acoustic guitar player - has always been a guitarist par excellence and however more so than on this, where he is back on top musical form both lyrically and musically. Opener Stony Ground sets the tone, drawing the listener in immediately and from then on the quality never wavers, with his strongest set for many a year. Good Things Happen To Bad People and the psychedelic-tinged Straight And Narrow are notable highlights, proving Thompson is back to his searing best.
