Dimming of the day, incredible song.
I have a version sung by Bonnie Raitt and Richard in concert:
I have heard a number of versions of this great song but I love Bonnie's the best with Richard doing backup vocals! Simply great harmonies!
She gave my daughter her degree graduating from Berklee in Boston.
Here is the original live version with Richard and Linda Thompson:
And one of his signature songs:
1952 Vincent Black Lightning, which could be a movie!
This live video shows some of his guitar picking, shows why he won a best guitarist award in 1991!
Here he is in the deep past, 1990! She moves through the fair, you can see his incredible guitar playing here!
For those of you who didn't know, Richard was a founding member of a great band back then called Fairport Convention.
Another one, Beeswing:
This one is with a friend, Alistair Anderson, a virtuoso on concertina and bagpipes.
Just as an aside, here is Alistair more in his element with the Northumbrian clog dancers:
Back to Richard and Alistair, a traditional tune, Madame Bonaparte, great performance!
And in this same trad vein, some O Carolyn tunes, with Alistair, Richard and a lady Northumbrian piper, Kathryn Tickell:
