Front Parlour Ballads marks Thompson's first full studio album of acoustic-oriented material since 1981's Strict Tempo, and unlike that album, which was dominated by traditional material, this set features a bakers' dozen Thompson songs. Thompson also recorded and produced this set all by his lonesome in his home studio, and while the man has always shown good taste in collaborators, Front Parlour Ballads reveals how bright he can shine on his own. Front Parlour Ballads is the eleventh studio album by Richard Thompson, released in 2005. His 2005 release on the Cooking Vinyl label was a literally homemade album. Thompson's aim was to create an album that sounded small and intimate. Front Parlour Ballads has been hailed as his first solo, all acoustic album since 1981 but strictly speaking it's neither of those things - percussionist Debra Dobkin plays on two tracks, Let It Blow and My Soul, My Soul and Thompson himself adds electric guitar to.
