CD Reviews

Great Music
David Zarate | Waukesha, WI United States | 12/05/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The music here is very simple and straightforward. The artist manages to capture the pioneer spirit of America in a way that reveals its purity and promise. I particularly liked the "Gold Rush" track (I wish I could play it on guitar,) but the whole album is great listening. Haunting and atomospheric, I highly recommend it. Thank you John."
An American Master

"Most people know John Stewart through his work in the folk era (Cumberland Three and the Kingston Trio) and his solo career. A surprisingly under-recognized singer-songwriter (Gold, Runaway Train, Daydream Believer, etc., etc.), Stewart also is one of the finest guitar and banjo players around (Lindsay Buckingham, who knows a few things about the guitar, regards him as extraordinary) as well as a very talented arranger. Despite dozens of albums, Stewart seldom has released purely instrumental work until this album. Whether or not you know him and are just a fan of superb finger-work, listen to this album. You'll be very glad you did. And then listen to his singing albums."

"I cannot recommend an album more than this one. Totally different than anything else John has done, this is a unique masterpiece. Heartfelt lovely multi-themes are side one, each playing on the other with great segues. On side 2 what I call John's Balero on a hypnotic building piece and then a kick-ass set of guitar and banjo picking. One of my all-time favorites."
