Richard Thompson “Gethsemane” – Listen

What?  A song from 2003’s ‘The Old Kit Bag‘?  Well, kind of – this is the acoustic version from ‘Acoustic Classics II.‘  What’s that about?  Well – this suitably dark, paranoid and apocalyptic song is here to celebrate the fact that Richard Thompson is 72 on Saturday.  Happy Birthday Richard.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
