    Finally got to see Richard Thompson in concert (long-time Fairport Convention fan, guess I'm dating myself), so bought a bunch of his CDs, as well as the DVD/CD boxed set:

    For those who aren't familiar w/ it, it's a hoot, Playboy Magazine asked Thompson to do a list of the best music of the millennium before the turn of the century --- realizing that they probably wanted a best of the 20th century, he nevertheless took them at their word, and musicologist that he was, compiled a list which comprised one song for each century originally:

    https://slate.com/culture/2003/10/the-best-songs-of-the-millennium.html

    He later expanded the list some and made it into a concert which the boxed set is a recording of.

    Notable songs which he has done include:

    - Beeswing --- heartbreaking song of love lost which truly captures the zeitgeist of the 60s
    - Vincent Black Lightning --- the most requested/asked after song ever played on NPR

    When Rollie Free was trying to set a motorcycle land speed record his leathers were flapping so hard that they were fraying, so he stripped down to a helmet, speedo, and sneakers for a record-setting run:
