The fourth of five albums Richard Thompson would record in Los Angeles with producer and keyboard player Mitchell Froom, Mirror Blue faced the challenge of following one of Thompson's biggest critical and commercial successes, 1991's Rumor and Sigh. Rather than repeat what had worked so well previously, Thompson and especially Froom were more adventurous in the studio, turning off both fans and critics. Still, Guitar World included Mirror Blue on its list of the 50 iconic albums that defined 1994.

"... it was a radical record and a brave record, it was off the back of the records Mitchell had done with Suzanne Vega and Los Lobos and the couple of records (engineer) Tchad Blake had done with Tom Waits. All of which I thought were terrific ... they all had a kind of character to them, a sound that was really trying to strip away some clichés, like why have a snare drum, why the backbeat? And just looking at the song and seeing what does the song need, what’s going to work?"

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
