One Down, One to Go

I saw Richard Thompson play a spellbinding set in  the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall shortly after the death of Denis Thatcher.
He made some comment about Mr T's demise to which a wag from the crowd loudly retorted "one down, one to go" to thunderous applause.

Not only is he one of the greatest guitarists of his generation (Richard, not Denis) he is also a very underestimated songwriter as these two songs clearly demonstrate.

  1. I seem to recall there were some very good record shops. And some tasty falafel being eaten. And a mountain of drink bought and consumed over two weeks.
