It was released by Island Records in the UK in 1974. Although never commercially successful and critically ignored upon its release, it is now considered by a number of critics to be a masterpiece and one of the finest works of both Richard and Linda singularly or together.

Produced by Richard Thompson & John Wood. Album I Want to See the Bright Lights Tonight. I Want To See The Bright Lights Tonight Lyrics. I'm so tired of working every day Now the weekend's come I'm gonna throw my troubles away If you've got the cab fare, mister, you'll do all right I want to see the bright lights tonight. There's crazy people running all over town There's a silver band just marching up and down And the big boys are all spoiling for a fight I want to see the bright lights tonight. Meet me at the station don't be late I need to spend some money and it just won't wait Take me to the dance and hold me tight I want to see the bright lights tonight. A couple of drunken nights rolling on the floor Is just the kind of mess I'm looking for I'm gonna dream 'till Monday comes in sight I want to see the bright lights tonight.

In 1974, Richard Thompson and the former Linda Peters released their first album together, and I Want to See the Bright Lights Tonight was nothing short of a masterpiece, the starkly beautiful refinement of the promise of Thompson's solo debut, Henry the Human Fly. In Linda Thompson, Richard found a superb collaborator and a world-class vocalist; Linda possessed a voice as clear and rich as Sandy Denny's, but with a strength that could easily support Richard's often weighty material, and she proved capable of tackling anything presented to her, from the delicately mournful ".

Bright Lights addressed the issue by pairing him with his wife Linda. While her voice was not really commercial in the pop sense, it was certainly more radio-friendly than Richard’s at the time. It had a kind of naked honesty that captivated many listeners, although it was not to everyone’s taste (see Tim Wilson’s answer). And her singing (as well as Richard’s) got even better over the course of their six albums together (nowadays Richard is an excellent vocalist, while Linda’s voice, tragically, has beenstilled by dysphonia to the point that she has retired from performing)  . But on the whole, forty-four years later, I Want to See the Bright Lights Tonight holds up extremely well. 263 Views · View 2 Upvoters · Answer requested by. David Elrod.
