5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant, electric
Witty, soulful, brilliant, electric. RT is incapable of producing a mediocre recording. But some of his output is better than others. This is among the best. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Thompson was an amazing talent
If you only listen to one song, listen to his song, 1952 Vincent Black Lightning. It's a song I never tire of hearing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible, superb, and supreme and wonderful
Great album from beginning to end. Thompson does it again! One fabulous song after another with tasteful guitar leads playing off thought provoking lyrics. Buy. Enjoy. Marvel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything a Richard Thompson fan could want
This has everything a Richard Thompson fan could want: wit, poignancy, clever rhymes, and most especially, insipid irony. Then there is the music itself. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars I bought it for one song and I love that song
I love this artist's voice and the lyrics are great and some are exquisite. I don't like the darker stuff though.

This album has long been on my "wish list", and I am happy to say that 1952 Vincent Black Lightning is just one of many great tracks.

1952 Vincent Black Lightning has become an anthem for those of us in the "alternative" bike world -- we fully appreciate classic Harleys, but we ride "metric... Read more
