C&L's Late Nite Music Club With Richard And Linda Thompson

You can waste your time on the other rides

Shoot Out The Lights was my introduction to Richard and Linda Thompson. The guy I was working for was a big fan of Richard and had me drive to the record store to pick him up a copy of the album on the day it was released. That was 35 years ago today, March 15th, 1982.

I heard the album for about a two weeks straight after that day. I was just a teenager and it was pretty much "grown up" music. It was something much different than what I was into at the time but I still dug it pretty much immediately.

What are you listening to tonight?
