Dreams Fly Away, a retrospective of the career of Linda Thompson, is a terrific introduction to one of the great female voices in popular music. A healthy dose of rare and unreleased tracks, along with previously available material from her career with Richard Thompson and solo, make this a must for fans and novitiates alike. Some of the unreleased gems include a haunting, live "The Great Valerio," what may be the definitive version of Sandy Denny's "I'm a Dreamer" from the Gerry Rafferty-produced Shoot Out the Lights sessions, and "Pavanne," recorded live in Hamburg, Germany.
4.5 Stars & AMG Album Pick
Linda Thompson, of course, is Richard Thompson's ex-wife and performing partner, and her retrospective is most appealing when she's soberly intoning his bleak and brusque admissions. "For Shame of Doing Wrong" and "Walking on a Wire" are perfect forums for Linda Thompson's stately, weary vocals. She never found quite so sympathetic or prolific a source of songs after her marriage to Richard broke up. Attempts to modernize her surroundings met with mixed results, but Dreams Fly Away sifts through the chaff to come up with 20 worthy and frequently rare Linda Thompson tracks.
