Luke Schleicher, Laughter

Thompson, Richard - Front Parlour Ballads (Mega Blowout Sale)
This is a really good, recent album by Richard. Mostly acoustic (and despite the fact that Richard is a monster lead guitarist, I may actually prefer him on acoustic guitar), with all the instruments sans the percussion performed by RT, it's definitely sort of a newer version of his great album "Strict Tempo", one of his great works of the 70s/80s.
Front Parlour Ballads is almost entirely acoustic, with all instruments but percussion played by Richard Thompson himself. Despite the basic approach...
