    I started listening to her in 1968, her first album.

    I also have a great recording, a ripped acoustic concert with her and James Taylor from around that same time, just her and her guitar and dulcimer and James and his guitar, that's it. What a great concert that was. But I loved her records in the early to mid 70's best.

    I don't know how many people know this: She is a great artist also, just as good at painting as music, has shows in Canada.

    Richard Thompson,

    Dimming of the day, incredible song.

    I have a version sung by Bonnie Raitt and Richard in concert:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1o8M74ufF4Q&feature=kp

    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:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6kjCd7QRbw

    And one of his signature songs:

    1952 Vincent Black Lightning, which could be a movie!

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j0kJdrfzjAg

    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!

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yi3Ry75UYkc

    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:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0bCVyEfV8Ns

    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:

    All acoustic.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s1yYM7fKLS0

    Back to Richard and Alistair, a traditional tune, Madame Bonaparte, great performance!

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3rfNB4tQUrA

    And in this same trad vein, some O Carolyn tunes, with Alistair, Richard and a lady Northumbrian piper, Kathryn Tickell:
