RICHARD & LINDA THOMPSON – Hokey Pokey

LP – Black 180g Vinyl – Includes Download Code


Richard and Linda’s second LP. Released in 1975, Hokey Pokey is a much jollier release than its predecessor, I Want To See The Bright Lights Tonight.

Richard always envisaged Hokey Pokey as “a music-hall influenced record”. He was a big fan of Harry Lauder and Gracie Fields, and this inspiration can be seen in the Victorian style cover by Shirt Sleeve Studio, and is audible on the title track, Hokey Pokey and also Georgie On A Spree.

Richard and Linda’s 2nd album together is a mixture of darkly comic songs like Smiffy’s Glass Eye and the more world weary nature of I’ll Regret It All In The Morning and A Heart Needs A Home. There are also more sombre songs such as The Egypt Room which Richard described as “half way between The Coasters Little Egypt, George Formby, and Dickens by way of Patricia Highsmith”.
