Richard Thompson checks out our Record Room

Legendary British folk/rock musician Richard Thompson, OBE, stopped by Mystery Spot Antiques in Phoenicia the other day to do some vintage vinyl digging. He ended up with a very nice stack of records. It was great to see our old friends RT and his wonderful wife Nancy Covey, Simon, and Annalise, who are up in the Catskills this week for guitar camp (Frets and Refrains) at the Full Moon Resort, and a show at the Bearsville Theatre in Woodstock this Friday. (If the concert isn’t yet sold out, run, don’t walk to get tickets to what will be an amazing show).

Our history with Richard goes way back, to the cover artwork we painted for his album Rumor and Sigh in 1991…

…to even further back, when we shot this photograph of Richard and Linda Thompson when they were promoting Shoot Out the Lights in 1982.
