TigerLilly suggested this one after GypsySoul thought she deserved an Iron Bladder Award, or some such, for superhuman endurance as reported in the Bathroom Break topic. So nominate your pals for silly awards here. Silly but kind awards...
A serious award for Richard Thompson
http://www.richardthompson-music.com/catch_of_the_day.asp?id=1350 And I was listening to 'Pour Down Like SIlver' when I saw this on Eurotraders. So what's it like to become part of the establishment RT? Did you tell the Queen you would meet her on the ledge?
I thought he looked pretty pleased about the whole affair. Good for him, not bad for a California dude, by way of London, England. So...I ordered his new Live at BBC box from Universal in the UK. Received a shipping notification on 6/14, hasn't arrived yet. CB, how long should I wait before I start getting nervous? No idea what a typical overseas delivery would be, and no tracking info either...
Christmas in July?
Is that a nuclear war, and a coronation of the Second Coming of Jesus Christ?An outstanding halo will prove it to all.
Gratefaldean - in my experience of sending vines, shipping to the US normally takes 10 -14 days so you should get it soon.....hope you do anyway. I have not ordered 'Live at the BBC' yet, but I should do.. Does Thompson live in California now? I had no idea. Anyway he does indeed looks pleased to get some recognition from his home country. Good for him; he is right up there with the best of them..
one suspects this was not on his mind back in the day. Or any other time either. But it's well deserved and it's a treat to see. (And folks, if RT comes to your town and you have not seen him, check him out, and not just because the Queen likes him now!)
