volume 2 features yet more acoustic renderings of classic songs from his breath-taking back catalogue, some previously recorded by other singers, some previously available only in a band format.

Named by Rolling Stone Magazine as one of the Top 20 Guitarists of All Time, he is also one of the world’s most critically acclaimed and prolific songwriters. He has received Lifetime Achievement Awards for Songwriting on both sides of the Atlantic - from the Americana Music Association in Nashville to Britain’s BBC Awards as well as the prestigious Ivor Novello. In 2011, Thompson received an OBE (Order of the British Empire) personally bestowed upon him by Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace.
