Richard Thompson featured in the first instalment of this Folk Monday series as part of Fairpot Convention.
Today he appears with Linda Thompson, his wife at the time , with 1975's Pour Down Like Silver on the Island label.It is the 3rd of their albums as a couple and sits next to 1974's I Want to See the Bright Lights Tonight. A further three were to follow.
At the time that his was released they had adopted the Sufti faith (as you can see from the cover) and were living in a commune in London. There were some conflcts between their religion and their musical career leading to this being their last album until 1978.
While Dimming of the Day is sung by Linda on this album it has remained part of Richard's repertoire until this day
