    Shame on you Thompson - making having a death wish seem elegant and beautiful and impossibly romantic. What a song- probably his best imho.

    Yes, it's Read About Love. Great tune, though.

    At last!!! Lastfm has finally played me this tune as advertised - great live version too!!!

    January 2012
  • yohothemole

    Why does lastfm keep playing me 'Read About Love' (excellent song) when it tells me it's playing '1952 Vincent Black Lightning' (possibly my favourite song ver!!!!)

    Rather, Spotify misnames it as well.

    August 2011
  • solitaireartist

    Yep. Spotify says it's 'Read About Love' too. Very strange.

    Wires crossed? The track playing now is not 1952 Vincent Black Lightening!? Love the song and a big RT fan regardless.

    "Red hair and black leather, my favorite color scheme" is just brilliant stuff.

    what is i about english folk singers(or bands) and stories about death set to music?-they have a way of interpreting the songs in a beautiful manner.

    Wonderful song from one of Britain's greatest guitarists. I knew of someone who had a Vincent Black Lightning and he spoke of it with reverence.
