Following the success of his Acoustic Classics album in 2014 when the celebrated singer songwriter and guitarist revisited his back catalogue Richard Thompson returns to the format with two new albums which will be released simultaneously on August 11th.
Acoustic Classics Vol. 2 will feature acoustic renderings of classic songs from the Richard Thompson catalogue, some previously recorded by other singers, some previously available only in a band format. Acoustic Rarities is new recordings of some of the more obscure songs in the Thompson catalogue, some previously existing only as cover versions. Special three-disc vinyl LP and double CD versions of both albums together will be released exclusively via Pledge Music: https://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/richardthompson In addition Thompson will tour the UK in October 2017 including the first concert at the newly-established London Bridge Theatre. All dates are here.
