2/1/08 – Peter Holmstedt of Hemifran in Sweden has posted ‘Making Up For Lost Time’ as album of the week, and included Italy’s Francesco Lucarelli’s CD review. http://www.hemifran.com/album.html

2/1/08 – ‘Making Up For..’ is now available through Village Records. Village Records Review: “Fourth solo album since 1971 for Thomas. Great things take time and there’s no use in rushing things when the end result is as satisfying as this. Getting a vocal assist from Graham Nash and featuring some top session players Thomas offers up an album of new originals. Using an atmospheric backing sound with acoustic underpinnings this one is easy on the ears and yields some memorable songs. He’s been around for a long time, mostly behind the scenes and has been involved in many projects in a forty year plus career. Like James Luther Dickinson he steps behind the mic for himself once and a while.” http://www.villagerecords.com/product_info.php?products_id=4720
