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

  • WHAT a guitar player!
  • Loving this beat, for many reasons~~` Nice

  • did this live at the americana awards a few days ago at the ryman-killer song

  • rockin...;-)
  • Yes, it's Read About Love. Great tune, though.
  • At last!!! Lastfm has finally played me this tune as advertised - great live version too!!!
  • 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!!!!)
  • lovely guitar-great story-what more can be asked from a song?
  • I now want one of these machines ! [2]
  • Best Dong Ever!!!!!!!
  • I now want one of these machines !
  • motorcycle news didnt even mention this one as the greatest motorcycle tunes. i hope the little pricks know more about scooters than music
  • Rather, Spotify misnames it as well.
  • Yep. Spotify says it's 'Read About Love' too. Very strange.
  • This seems to be "Read About Love"! Still brilliant though!
  • That was sad & lovely
  • this is not 1952 vincent black lightning-good song none the less
  • It dosen't get to much better than this one!
  • Love this song!
  • One of my favorite tunes.
  • Wires crossed? The track playing now is not 1952 Vincent Black Lightening!? Love the song and a big RT fan regardless.
  • Beautiful guitar-playing and a great story.
  • "Red hair and black leather, my favorite color scheme" is just brilliant stuff.
  • What a song, what a bike to write a song about!
  • 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.
  • Man I love this track so much
  • Love, love, love. love, love. Consumate storyteller. Breathtaking.
  • 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.
  • a favorite!!
  • Shotgun blassst in his cheeestttt.....left nothing insiddeeee :(
  • It's a cracker!
  • Ah. Nothing beats a great death song!
  • "Legend"

  • My favorite song of one of my favorite singers!
  • A man rides a Vincent alone.
  • Great song!!
  • If only me 53' Beam was a Black lightning!
  • Havent heard this in years !! Used to have one of these ( the bike bit only, i'm afraid-no "red mollie" for me (alas!) but DID actually ride it down the old A20 "death hill" back up in Kent 30 years ago --- weird !!
