The Richard Thompson Band: Live in Providence
Beautifully recorded and featuring both a vivid stereo mix and an engrossing 5.1 surround mix, Live in Providence is a long-overdue concert performance release from Richard Thompson, unquestionably one of the most expressive and emotive singer/songwriters to emerge in the last 40 years; an artist who is rightfully spoken of in the same breadth as Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell and Randy Newman.
