Limited Edition Clear "Mirror" Vinyl Double LP!

One of guitarist and singer-songwriter Richard Thompson's post-Fairport Convention solo recordings

"Beeswing" recognized as one of his best and most enduring songs

First time on vinyl LP in the United States! 1,200 copies pressed

Any album boasting a song as gorgeous and heartfelt as "Beeswing" is going to be a keeper. But Richard Thompson's 1994 release Mirror Blue has a lot more going for it than just that classic. "King of Bohemia" will tease tears from your eyes, and those looking for rave-ups will be transported by Thompson's solos on "The Way That It Shows" and "Mascara Tears." It's one of his best, if most underappreciated records; but Mirror Blue never saw a release on vinyl in the U.S.; and, even though it clocks in at 55 minutes, it was released as a single album in the U.K. So this Real Gone Music release rights two wrongs; this album has never sounded or looked as good as it does on this 2LP set housed inside a gorgeous gatefold jacket. Clear "Mirror" vinyl pressing limited to 1,200 copies!
