Portal to Richard Thompson

I've recently started peeking into the depths of Richard Thompson's catalog of music, which spans 40+ years, so the question arises: where should I start?

I suggest this live solo acoustic record, Small Town Romance, as a portal.

The record features songs from RT's early band, the seminal Brit folk rock group, Fairport Convention, along with a selection of songs from his seven albums with his former wife, Linda Thompson, and other songs from his solo career.

Since he's playing solo acoustic, the music highlights his tremendous guitar playing skills, his powerful baritone, and of course his sharp, thoughtful songwriting talents.
