Songs pour Down like Silver
Covers and Sessions

This product is included in: RT
Richard is rightly hailed as one of Britain’s greatest songwriters (“and certainly the most underrated”, as a recent review pointed out.) On stage, he often delights audiences with an unexpected cover version. Few of these have been released officially, and for the first time, we are proud to bring together a whole album of RT covers.

The music ranges from ancient “trad.. arr:” to 21st Century pop, and takes in an astonishing range of musical genres along the way – punk and protest, music hall and Hollywood musical, singer-songwriters and rock ’n’ roll.

Richard’s own song writing is represented through a couple of covers of his songs, on which he appears as a session musician.
