After Linda Thompson sang on Richard’s solo debut in 1972, the two wed and kicked off a legendary decade that remains one of the highlights of all British folk rock. Through an often rocky marriage (which included Richard and an unwilling Linda joining a devout Sufi commune), the couple combined his stellar instrumental chops and brutally sad songwriting with her exquisite voice on classics such as 1974’s I WANT TO SEE THE BRIGHT LIGHTS TONIGHT and 1975’s POUR DOWN LIKE SILVER. The duo supported their most commercially and critically successful record, 1982’s SHOOT OUT THE LIGHTS, with a final tour marked by the notably public dissolution of their relationship.
