Illinois Your song, "Wall of Death" got me through a very rough time last fall, a major rift in my family. I felt the floor had dropped out from under me and things were spinning out of control. Six months later, life has calmed down, but that song still means the world to me. Thank you!

Michigan Please let me know when there will be shows in Ann Arbor, or the Ann Arbor area. Have a wonderful summer & Kind Regards.
Pennsylvania "Across A Crowded Room" was my first RT. And it just keeps getting better all the time. Whoa! That might make a good song. "Something... better all the time, hmm hmm hmm, something... something... better!" Run with it. See what you come up with.
New Hampshire We were supposed to see you tonight in Wolfboro and were so sorry to hear of your injury. It sounds quit unpleasant. Take care and we hope that you get well soon! We look forward to hearing you again in October!
Massachusetts feel better
Minnesota The web site releases, live recordings and recent box set are greatly appreciated. Any chance for a DVD release of archival performances?

Derbyshire Thanks for the music Richard. Snippet - I recently visited Hereford Cathedral- on a wall plaque was a list of cathedral organists. This is interesting -one Edward Thompson from 1714 -1718 (and despite the gap with no organistattributed) then followed by Henry Swarbrick 1720 - 1754. Did they collaborate I wonder? Cheers!
Michigan I met Richard after the second show at The Ark in Ann Arbor, Michigan in 1986 or so. He was touring with Shawn Colvin among others. Saw both sets courtesy of tix bought by The Honeybears, as Richard knew them through Nancy Covey, who they had met on a travel tour to New Orleans. Richard was polite as one might expect. Very gracious to take time to meet with fans. Now I'm rediscovering him on Youtube and look forward to getting some of the material offered on this website, like the 1000 years of music DVD. Thanks for all the wonderful music and wit, Richard.

Cape Town Introduced by David Gilmour
England Hi Richard, Have just been introduced to your music by a friend and I think 1952 Vincent Black Lightening is amazing. It gives me goose bumps! Keep up the good work old chap

Oregon I have been listening to RT for a little over 2 years and love every one of his songs. I am currently 6 months pregnant and my baby seems to be especially active when I listen to RT's tunes which I find amusing. I think I will name her Sibella if I have a girl. No matter the gender my fetus seems to prefer Richard Thompson to Bob Dylan and Captain Beefheart. I only hope her love of RT continues to grow like mine!!
