"I'm a long-time fan of country music. I was listening to it in 1965 and '66, at a time when it was deeply unfashionable in the U.K. Everyone else was into Otis Redding and the blues. I discovered a Hank Williams record, and I thought, 'Wow, this is really something.' And I kind of went off from there, to Lefty Frizzell and Webb Pierce. I love '60s and '70s country music." - Richard Thompson

"The way that you're able to get stuff across to an audience is by getting inside the music as much as possible, reaching that really still place in the center of the music where you are totally present, almost unconscious, and totally engaged in the musical process and the storytelling process. When you get to that point, you’ve really achieved just about everything you can achieve as a musician." - Richard Thompson
