Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

TEDDY THOMPSON

Upfront & Down Low

2007-08-20

Teddy Thompson, the only son of British folk-rock icons Richard and Linda Thompson, steps away from his songwriting talents to reflect upon some old country classics. He chose wisely for his third album ... Ernest Tubb's "Walking the Floor Over You," George Jones's "She Thinks I Still Care," Dolly Parton's "My Blue Tears" ... and his own "Down Low." What makes this album poignant isn't the songwriting Thompson showcases, but the freshness of his interpretation. Sara Cosgrove
