Richard Thompson’s longevity as an artist is remarkable, his originality as a songwriter matched only by his technical accomplishment as a guitarist, electric and acoustic.  In Flying Solo Adrian Smith recounts the origins and recording of Thompson’s debut album, Henry The Human Fly, poorly received in 1972 but later acclaimed for its originality and musicianship. Smith sees the record as a statement of intent and a template for Thompson’s enduring career as a solo performer.

The parties that followed were often disrupted by rain.
