Guitar music unlike any you've heard before.......
Gary L. Chappell | 03/14/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"For fans of guitar music, this is an album that should not be missed. Craig's deft fingers and extraordinary melodic skills, coupled with Ozzie Alher's production talents, make this album one of the freshest sounding recordings I've had the pleasure of hearing! I have also had the pleasure of seeing over 15 "live" performances by Craig (it helps to live in his hometown), and can honestly say that if he plays in your area - Don't miss it! His live shows are a real treat and sound amazingly true to his recording performances. Four years ago I took my then girlfriend (now wife) to a Craig Chaquico concert at the Sweetwater in Mill Valley, CA for our first date and it was pure magic! For another treat, check out From the Redwoods to the Rockies album he did with Russ Freeman from The Rippingtons - another 5 Star recording!"
A Must Have

"This Craig Chaquico album is absolutely awesome. I originally bought it because of his great talent with Starship. I've never gotten tired of it and love it all times of the day and in my car.Finally, I met Craig over a 4 day period in Boston a number of years ago. He is very warm, welcoming and humble. An extra bonus that this "star" is so down to earth."
Acoustic Highway: A Melodic Museum

"Acoustic Highway is without doubt the purest of all Chaquico albums. The instrumental landscapes he paints with majestic melodies and Native American earthbeats spread the complete spectrum of sense and emotion. Each song on this album contains nostalgic undurcurrents of innocent, child-like adventure. Have you ever actually "heard" the stars come out at night? Have you ever actually "heard" the smell of Californian Redwoods while at home in front of your stereo? Chaquico uses layers of tracs with sound effects and surround sounds to bring the listner into a new, pseudo-world. Chaquico is no doubt a genius SONGWRITER. His songs are at the same time crafted and improvised, held-back and let-loose. This man can jam. Great roadtrip music. A must buy. Title trac #5, "Acoustic Highway," truely reaches a cathartic moment by the end of the song. Check it out!"
