Real Gone Music 1270
Limited Edition Clear "Mirror" Vinyl Double LP!
One of guitarist and singer-songwriter Richard Thompson's post-Fairport Convention solo recordings
"Beeswing" recognized as one of his best and most enduring songs
First time on vinyl LP in the United States! Only 1,200 copies pressed
Any album boasting a song as gorgeous and heartfelt as "Beeswing" is going to be a keeper. But Richard Thompson's 1994 release Mirror Blue has a lot more going for it than just that classic. "King of Bohemia" will tease tears from your eyes, and those looking for rave-ups will be transported by Thompson's solos on "The Way That It Shows" and "Mascara Tears." It's one of his best, if most underappreciated records; but Mirror Blue never saw a release on vinyl in the U.S.; and, even though it clocks in at 55 minutes, it was released as a single album in the U.K. So this Real Gone Music release rights two wrongs; this album has never sounded or looked as good as it does on this 2LP set housed inside a gorgeous gatefold jacket. Clear "Mirror" vinyl pressing limited to 1,200 copies!
