Richard thompson baby don t know what to do with herself

You? Me? Us? is the eighth studio album by British singer-songwriter Richard Thompson released in April 1996 via Capitol Records. It was Thompson's fourth album for the label, his fifth with Mitchell Froom producing and his second to be nominated for a Grammy Award. Thompson's son from his first marriage (to Linda Thompson) Teddy sings backing vocals on disc 2.



The album is split into two discs. Disc one, Voltage Enhanced, is recorded with a band and is largely electric. Disc two, Nude is largely acoustic with just violin or Danny Thompson's double bass for accompaniment. Two songs, "Razor Dance" and "Hide It Away", are included on both discs. The songs on you? me? us? are notable for metrical complexity and richness of lyric, and for Thompson's guitar work. His acoustic guitar playing is highlighted on the Nude disc. His electric playing is to the fore on "Put It There Pal" and "Bank Vault In Heaven" on the Voltage Enhanced disc.
