Richard & Linda Thompson: “Lonely Hearts” (1979)

No one can sing a sad song like Linda Thompson. And no one can write one like her one-time husband Richard.

It’s not that they were stylistic one-trick ponies: their albums showed them to be quite adept at political, comical or satirical material. And all resonated with a trademark passion and authenticity, and each brimmed with the tasteful guitar work of one of the instrument’s true masters.

But it’s the tear-jerkers that seem to stay with you once the needle hits the end groove–or what have you.
