Product Description & Reviews
Teddy Thompson's eponymous debut album manages to blend the sound of his parents - British folk-rock legends Richard & Linda Thompson - with the stamp of his own acoustic pop. Written by Thompson and produced by singer/songwriter Joe Henry, the album also features his father on guitar on many of the tracks. Originally released in 2000, the album is being reissued in response to the growing interest in Teddy Thompson due to his music featuring heavily in the soundtrack to the multi-Oscar nominated film 'Brokeback Mountain' and the subsequent re-promotion of his latest album (released by Universal). EMI. Given the lullaby that Richard Thompson wrote to commemorate his son's birth ("There's nothing at the end of the rainbow / There's nothing to grow up for anymore"), Teddy Thompson turned out reasonably cheerful. True, when the British folk-rock legend's son sings "It's not so much that you left / It's that you didn't come back" on "A Step Behind," you can hear echoes of dad's droll delivery, melancholy modes, and waltz-time signatures. But Teddy's voice is sweeter than his pop's, whether crooning on the Crowded House-like "Wake Up," harmonizing with Rufus Wainwright on "So Easy," or even dropping allusions to letter bombs on the wry "Thanks a Lot." With tasteful musical assistance from producer Joe Henry's band (as well as Papa Richard), this eponymous debut is a low-key introduction to a rock offspring worth hearing. --Bill Forman
