Format: Audio CD
"More Guitar" is aptly named--it captures Richard Thompson in top form during the 1988 "Amnesia" tour. Featuring 12 tracks with four tracks drawn from that album, a couple from "Across a Crowded Room" and "Dangerous Adventures" and a curious dip back into "Henry the Human Fly", "More Guitar" features incendary performances and guitar pyrotechnics that Thompson fans are used to seeing live but rarely captured for CD. It's a great performance from Thompson and his '88 touring band featuring Christine Collister and Clive Gregson (who toured and recorded together during the 80's and 90's producing a series of great albums released to apathetic public response).

Recorded direct to two track DAT, the recordings sound surprisingly good (although it can't of course compare to what we would get now). This album is indeed available from Richard Thompson's website. I do wish the packaging were a bit better than the cardboard holder included with the set but that's minor (I used the cover art to create my own by scanning it into the computer).

12 marvelous tracks that could only be improved by including the entire concert from 1988, "More Guitar" lives up to its title. There's also a number of other releases at Richard's website including "1000 Years of Music" which features cover songs performed on acoustic by Thompson. That's also well worth picking up as is "Ducknapped".

To echo the earlier reviewer, amazing example of Richard Thompson's guitar pyrotechnics. RT has put out some great acoustic live CD's (The Chrono Show, Small Town Romance, Celtschmerz) and a newer guitar based live set, the Austin City Limits show. But this is an older show, from 1988 that really focuses in on guitar solos. If you love Richard's electric guitar solos, you'll love this release. If you're more a fan of his acoustic material, this may not be the CD for you. Or heck, it might convert you over to the electric side.

The sound quality is very good to excellent. The reasons I didn't give the release five stars are: 1) Compared to other Richard Thompson releases, it is excellent, but I wouldn't put it among his very, very best. 2) There are a couple songs that drag. I've never been a huge fan of "Gypsy Love Songs", and despite a great solo, this one really overstays its welcome at nearly seven minutes. His version of "We Got to Get Out of This Place" is o.k. the first couple of listens, but I do not feel holds up to repeat listens. It's slowed down and dragged out to nearly eight minutes. Honestly, I feel it's a rare misstep of Thompson. He is such an amazing song writer, why do a tired version of a tired song? That being said, obviously it is his right to do whatever song he wants to.

Now, if you live both of those songs, obviously ignore that part of the review. I don't care for those songs, however do they ruin the album? No, the rest of the songs more than make up for it. Enough to bring it to give stars? No, because while a really great CD, not in his top five I'd say. The versions of "Get Win," "Don't Tempt Me," and especially "Jerusalem on the Jukebox" and "Shoot Out of the Lights" are amazing.

I was fortunate to catch a show from this tour back in November of '88, at the old Bayou club in Washington, D.C., and am glad that this set has been captured for Richard Thompson fans everywhere. These tunes showcase his incredible writing skills, with his razor sharp Strat attacking with fury, and the backing support of Clive Gregson with Christine Collister are perfect. Their vocal work on Richard's sublime acoustic cover of Gene Clark's "Here Without You" is a bonus. Throw in John Kirkpatrick's stellar accordion and Kenny Aranoff's take no prisoners drum work, and you have possibly THE best little touring band Thompson ever assembled. Grab this disc, while available, if you want to capture the essence of live RT.
