Performer Notes
  • Personnel: Richard Thompson (vocals, guitar, mandolin, hurdy-gurdy); Simon Nicol (guitar); Aly Bain (fiddle); Phillip Pickett (shawm, curtal, crumhorn); John Kirkpatrick (accordion, concertina); Mitchell Froom (piano, Hammond organ, portative organ, chamberlin, celeste, clavioline, echo harp);
  • Jerry Scheff (bass); Jim Keltner, Mickey Curry (drums); Alex Acuna (percussion); Clive Gregson, Christine Collister (background vocals).
  • Richard Thompson's albums with Mitchell Froom in the producer's chair tended to be stylistically varied affairs, and on RUMOR AND SIGH, the singer's distinctive English vocal inflections and biting guitar spar inspiringly with Froom's kitchen-sink approach to production. Froom found intriguing ways to cope with Thompson's own wild stylistic approach, ranging from dark, narrative acoustic ballads ("1952 Vincent Black Lightning"), through radio-friendly, country-tinged rock ("Keep Your Distance," "You Dream Too Much"), to demonic rock & rollers ("I Feel So Good," "Mother Knows Best'). SIGH also showcases Thompson's lyrical extremes, from the intense ("I Misunderstood," "Mystery Wind") to the daffy ("Don't Sit On My Jimmy Shands," "Psycho Street").
