New Releases For November 29, 2011

Richard Thompson
Strict Tempo!

Richard Thompson - Strict Tempo!

Strict Tempo! was originally released in 1981 on Richard Thompson's own imprint, Elixir, and later reissued by the Hannibal label but has been out of print for some time. The year 2011 marks the 30th anniversary of this dexterous collection of traditional jigs and reels - with an original Thompson composition and a Duke Ellington cover thrown in for good measure. Omnivore Recordings is proud to celebrate the reissue of this recording by releasing it both digitally and on CD. The first run of the CD is packaged in a special 'greeting card' style sleeve and features new notes on each song by Thompson.
