Mitchell Froom's M1 Still: Wilco's MkVII Richard Thompson first made his name as a callow 17 year-old with Fairport Convention in the late '60s and has, for his sins, been tarred with the 'folk-rock' brush ever since.
Admittedly, there are far worse brushes to be tarred with? Thompson left Fairport in and quickly began his solo career. After meeting and marrying his wife Linda, they recorded together for the rest of the decade, before an acrimonious split in the early '80s; I personally much prefer his post-split work, which to my ears reached a peak around the early '90s.
He's still writing well and playing; after all, he's only in his early fifties now, and as a 'singer-songwriter' for want of any better termthere's no good reason for him to stop any time in the near future.
The self-deprecatingly titled Guitar, Vocal was a stopgap album released during Thompson's self-inflicted three year musical hiatus, when he and Linda became Sufi Muslims and moved into a religious community. It's a double-LP set, one disc a compilation of rarities, the other more recent live material.
Fairport's b-side Throwaway Street Puzzle remixed, apparently has Mellotron credited to guitarist Simon Nicol, but to be honest, I'll be fucked if I can hear it.
ByThompson's post-split career was well under way and he began working with noted US producer Mitchell Froom. Now, Froom is or maybe was notorious for using Chamberlin on almost everything he produced and the brilliant Amnesia is no exception.
However, due to the instrument's irritating ability to disappear into the mix, I can actually only hear it on one track, Don't Tempt Me, one of the album's lesser songs. There must be a good six classic Thompson songs on the album and there may be some more Chamberlin on there, but it's certainly not immediately apparent.
Its slightly belated follow-up, Rumor and Sigh another Froom production really is a classic record, with no less than eight or nine top songs, particularly the opening three numbers, with no noticeably substandard efforts in sight.
The two obvious Chamberlin tracks both use strings, and had me thinking they were Mellotron until I looked at the credits more closely. Thompson carried on releasing albums through the next twenty-plus years, from the rather ordinary Mock Tudor, Front Parlour Ballads to the inspired Dream Attic, Electric's Still falling somewhere between those two extremes.
Definitely worth hearing he doesn't make albums that aren't, franklythe five-track Variations EP that comes with the deluxe edition possibly contains some of the set's best tracks. Highlights of the album itself include opener She Never Could Resist A Winding Road, the beautiful Josephine and Dungeons For Eyes, although the prize for 'oddest track on the album' has to go to closer Guitar Heroes, a love song to Thompson's early influences.
I think that's a ghostly flute part on Broken Doll, but it's not exactly what you'd call outstanding use. Anyway, another fine album from a massively underrated artist. So, although these albums are all total classics, only Rumor and Sigh has any obvious Chamberlin use, and isn't really worth buying on those grounds alone.Greatest hits collection 50's.

Adrian Gurvitz is not going to make you forget Eric Clapton, and the bass player (his brother Paul Gurvitz, I believe) is 5/5(2). So what was going through Adrian Gurvitz’s head fourteen years later, obviously desperate to write another big hit?
