Synopsis

Amazon.com
From the country hoedown stomp of "Lunchtime at Rosie's" to the childlike whimsy of "Rocking Horse," Adrian Legg's second Red House Records release is sure to please fans of this wonderfully dexterous acoustic guitarist. While nearly every song showcases his unbelievably quick, fluid finger playing, Legg never sacrifices melody to virtuosity. On songs such as "Shorelines" and "Cradle Songs," Legg establishes tranquil, even hypnotic atmospheres that serve as perfect counterpoints to his uptempo material. On "Tiddles," a little comedic discourse about a cat's unfortunate encounter with the neighbor's dog, Legg puts the guitar down as he tells us of the cat's sad demise ("Finally the whiff of his decomposition made plain his condition..."). A special bonus for those with CD-ROM drives: Legg includes a selection of his photographs to illustrate each song. --Percy Keegan

CD Reviews

Another excellent selection from the guitarist of the decade
05/18/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Adrian Legg has done it again! From the opening of "Lunchtime at Rosie's" (featuring Eric Johnson) to the closing of "Mdrundgum", Guitarist magazine's "Guitarist of the Decade" takes us on a journey through a range of styles and moods. Two years after the release of his previous Red House CD "Waiting for a Dancer", Legg has chosen to deliver a more textured album including some percussion, keyboards, bass and subtle vocals. There's also a poem "Tiddles", and a multimedia track "Shorelines" which will give you a set of shoreline pictures to showcase Legg's photographic talent. Guitarists will also be particularly interested in "Hymn for Jaco" and "(Pace Doc)", both of which are featured in his new Homespun video, "How to Cheat at Guitar". There's something for everyone here, and Adrian Legg should make many new friends this time around as well as pleasing his existing fan base."
