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
not norton 71 SS ?

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 ! 
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.
Shotgun blassst in his cheeestttt.....left nothing insiddeeee :(
It's a cracker!
Ah. Nothing beats a great death song!
Worlds Best Song.....In The World!!!!!
My favorite song of one of my favorite singers!
A man rides a Vincent alone.
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 !!
the man possesses some talent
That is wicked version..even better than the album version.
I frigging love this track. he play the guitar like .......a good guitar player
