Jim Lampos returns for "Live Lunch Break" encore
I don't have many personal regrets concerning our "Live Lunch Break" concert series. Yes, I'm sad I haven't been able to get the original Todd Rundgren's Utopia to regroup and perform. Or, for that matter, The Clash. And, yes, we know Joe's dead.
However, in 2012, when the excellent songwriter Jim Lampos appeared on an early LLB episode, I was out of town. My colleague, director Peter Huoppi, filled in adeptly for the interview segment, but I was sad to miss the show.
I'm looking forward, then, to Thursday at noon when Lampos encores. He's got a new album called "Entangled States," and, simply, it's pretty wonderful. Loaded with wistful and wise balladry, "Entangled States" is evocative, haunting and features 10 songs of impressive craft and inspiration.
You won't regret dropping by, and who knows — maybe, in addition to copies of "Engtangled States," there might be copies of Lampos' book, "The Remarkable Women of Old Lyme," available.
Live Lunch Break, noon Thursday, Telegraph Records Shop, 19 Golden St., New London; free; theday.com/livelunch.
