"People speak my name in whispers / what higher praise can there be."Originally released in 1999, Mock Tudor is the 9th studio album from Richard Thompson. A critically acclaimed record and a favorite for many fans, Mock Tudor is split into three thematic parts: Metroland, Heroes In the Suburbs, and Street Cries And Stage Whispers. Thompson enlists Tom Rothrock and Rob Schnapf to produce the 12-tracker, and alongside drummer Dave Mattacks and bassist Danny Thompson, the seasoned singer/songwriter delivers charming folk rock influenced by English sound of the '60s, and his lyrics, full of nostalgia and allusions to everything from children's books & fairy tales to Shakespeare and T.S. Eliot, are especially strong. This is decked out pressing includes a hardcover coffee table art book w/ 8 pages of recently uncovered photos and a high quality 12" x 12" wall art picture print. Updated mastering & lacquers, 180g clear vinyl double LP. Limited to 2018 copies, sequentially numbered aluminum stamp.
