I have never heard of I Want To See The Bright Lights Tonight, but I have heard of Richard & Linda Thompson. The are folk musicians so I am not sure how I will feel about it. Folk music is a hit and miss with me.
The songs I like are “When I Get to the Border“, “The Calvary Cross“, “The End of the Rainbow” and “Withered and Died“.
Overall, I have nothing bad to say about this album. I do not hate Linda’s voice, but I prefer Richard’s. She is not as bad as Joan Baez. It is interesting that a Muslim is singing about Calvary Cross, but I think he became more devoted after recording the album. I like this couple, but they did not last long. 7.5/10.
