Summary
British folk legend Richard Thompson pares back the finery on Acoustic Classics, a totally solo, acoustic reworking of 14 well-loved songs from his back catalog. The album, considered a studio companion piece to his frequent solo acoustic tours, reflects the modern arrangements he hs developed for classic songs. His influential guitar playing and showmanship have been well documented through a variety of late-career releases, but it is a true pleasure to hear his effortless command of the instrument as well as his rich and commanding baritone in the warm and unplugged format, attacking these older songs with true enthusiasm and a tastefulness. -- Editorial Review provided by Timothy Monger for All Music Guide, taken and adapted from Barnes And Noble website
