Sucking in the '70s - Volume 7

     I typically post at the end of the month, but I completed my newest compilation a few days ago and since a lot of us are stuck in our respective homes now, I figured I'd share it a little early.   I'm pretty sure I said 5-6 years ago that I wouldn't do another 70's music compilation, but I just kept hearing songs that really deserved another volume so there you go.   I've also re-upped all the previous volumes as well as the Saluting the 70's compilations.  Stay safe and be well everybody.

Just Watching the Dark: A Richard Thompson Collection

     I've always been a bit hesitant to put together a Richard Thompson compilation.  I'm certainly a fan, but I feel like my appreciation of his musical virtuosity can't compare to the legions of true believer Richard Thompson fans.  Plus, I don't think my favorite RT albums (Daring Adventures, Mirror Blue, Sweet Warrior) are most other fans' favorites.  But life is short, his career has been long and fruitful, and I felt like doing it.    I also should note that his version of Mose Allison's Parchman Farm is quite dandy, but I had already put together the compilation prior to hearing it.
