Strict Tempo! Richard Thompson. The young Richard Thompson did not have to travel far in the 50s and 60s to soak up a plethora of musical influences. He had the nearby Whetstone folk club where he got early exposure to the thriving melting pot of traditional and contemporary folk strands that caused excitement and argument in equal measurement at the time. Even before that local suburban journey, he had listened to the wireless and investigated his policeman father’s rich record collection

Richard Thompson: Strict Tempo! Cut in 1981, these "traditional and modern tunes for all occasions" are strictly instrumental, with Dave Mattacks holding the tempo. They're recommended to folkies, ex-folkies, guitar adepts, and students of European song. The Duke Ellington cover excepted, I just wish they swung as much as the rest of Thompson's catalogue. B.

Strict Tempo! is an instrumental album by Richard Thompson released in 1981. After the modest sales for their 1979 album Sunnyvista, Richard and Linda Thompson found themselves without a record deal. An album produced and financed by Gerry Rafferty (see Shoot Out the Lights for more details) failed to secure them a deal with a major label. To generate some income, Richard Thompson formed his own record label Elixir Records and recorded this album mostly at the small BTW studio in London, and also at the Woodworm Studios at Cropredy  . All songs traditional and arranged by Richard Thompson except where noted.

He has also appeared as a guest musician on the albums of a number of other artists.
