RICHARD and LINDA THOMPSON: Shoot Out The Lights (2CD Deluxe)

They tell us......

Lock and load with a high-powered chronicle of one couple's failed marriage. Shoot Out The Lights is Richard and Linda Thompson’s final album together and, ironically, the folk-rock couple’s most artistically acclaimed and commercially successful. The album was recorded, scrapped, and rerecorded before finally emerging in 1982, arriving just around the time that the couple split up.

Despite the separation, they embarked upon a U.S. tour to promote the album, delivering emotionally charged performances at every turn. Rhino Handmade reissues the couple’s legendary swan song as a two-disc deluxe edition that includes the original album along with a bonus disc of 11 unreleased live performances from the tour.
