CD Reviews

Cheesy, cornball, 1980's pop
The Delite Rancher | Phoenix, Arizona | 02/24/2005
(2 out of 5 stars)

"For a moment, forget what you know about David Grisman. Remove from your mind the image of the bearded and elderly statesman of the mandolin and ambassador for bluegrass jazz. Now, imagine him in the 1980's with a cleanly shaven face, wearing parachute pants, white shirt and a thin pink tie. If you can imagine this, you already know what the music sounds like on "Acousticity." The music on this disc is cheesy, cornball, 1980's pop. Grisman himself is in as fine a form as ever -the problem lies in the production. Just as you would recognize Grisman in a cameo for a Molly Ringwald movie, you can still make out his greatness on this recording. Unfortunatley, this album sounds like the producer mixed the disc for lite FM radio airplay. It seems that this disc is currently out-of-print and for good reason. At the time of review, the least expensive used copy was going for $44.97. If you're a wealthy Grisman completist, make this your final disc."
