Bell'album di Richard Thompson, con brani antichi e recenti eseguiti da solo, alla chitarra acustica, senza artifizi e con la notoria sublime maestria: Acoustic Classics (Beeswing, 2014). Dice: "This was conceived to be something to sell at acoustic shows. I don't really have anything on the merchandise table that is representative of a solo show, so I went in the studio and revisited some of the more popular songs I play live. In most cases, these are acoustic versions of songs that were originally recorded electric, and there have never been acoustic studio versions, just some live recordings, where I wasn't always satisfied with the sound or the performance. Also, some of these songs are 45 years old. I sing them and feel about them differently, and it's nice to capture the evolution."
