I usually wouldn't refer to an active musician as a legend, but when you have put out quality music for as long as Richard Thompson, rules can be broken. A superb songwriter, and folk artist who easily transitions to rock, he has released over 40 album in group or solo guise. His co-founding of Fairport Convention in the UK in his teens would have been enough to ensure a certain level of fame, but at this point that period is but one badge on a well-decorated chest. His distinctive tenor and songwriting skills will again be on display on the upcoming LP Still. Test drive album track "Broken Doll" below.
