Should be well known to one and all hERe:Richard Thompson
, travelling as Richard Thompson Trio
this summer and promoting his album Electric
Imitation is the highest form of praise. Dylan's highest form of praise usually comes in the form of referential stage attire. To which case I present exhibit A.
This guy's got my bets for most likely to share stage time with Dylan on the tour. I won't even embarrass myself by trying to define his music, talent, accomplishments, or abilities. A Shout out across the pond for input there, and his career has already been fervently discussed in these pages. Singularly most excited for him besides Dylan's set this summer.
I think an argument can be made that RT's sound influenced much of Dylan's stage sound through the nineties, but I will allow that to remain to be seen. http://www.allmusic.com/artist/richard- ... 0000359016

is on my shopping list before July - what else should I put in there? I am particularly interested in free exposure that I don't have to put in my shopping cart.
I'm also interested to know if BD & RT have officially done anything together in the past. viewtopic.php?f=6&t=3185&hilit=Richard+Thompsonhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YwSZvHqf ... 44D5003D24
also interested to know what you think of his Voice?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BKaEJcLmhg0
One of his distinctions from Bob is his availability to the media!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yvPKhfuJfrk
But I think Bob beats him on website qualityhttp://www.richardthompson-music.com/

Time is shrinking to get familiar with Dylan's supporting acts this summer. Here, we'll install a little informational primer for those who are interested in knowing a little more about the bands involved. I'm guessing people want to know a little less about whether they suck or kicka$$, and perhaps would value some information about their history and career arc, and how they might intersect with Bob. So I'd like to invite people who have knowledge about these bands to contribute.
Start Here, on Smoke's "Live Show" thread, where show samples and notable concerts/recordings/performances of the bands will hopefully accumulate.
