Amazing, powerful, funky!

"Do NOT go into this amazing album expecting School of Fish! I was lucky enough to experience Josh (rest his early-departed soul) live as an opener for Tori Amos, where he and his guitars alone battled against the audience like an orchestra.... for THAT, pick up his live album. For THIS... expect studio work and grooves, less fuzzy and hardcore than School of Fish, more lighthearted, more from the delicate, smiling soul. It is indeed a funky album, heavy in clear guitars, a far degree from the power-alternative of SOF.
Incredibly spiffy, and keep an eye out for his long-awaited post-mortem album, Spirit Touches Ground, to be released soon!"

"The fact is, you can't rely on his studio work to define him as an artist. To truly understand the genius of his talent, you really did need to see him live. That being said, his studio work really is fantastic. JCF definitely held his own, separate from School of Fish.
I was lucky enough to see him in a small pub in LA (the Largo), where he was opening for Colin Hay (of Men At Work fame). A friend of mine and I drove from Phoenix just to see him (we had no idea who the headliner was before we left). It remains one of the single most memorable and enjoyable concerts I've ever attended. It was just him, his guitars, and effects pedals. He did a cover of Prince's Erotic City which totally blew us away. He even told us, had we let him know we were making the trip ahead of time, we could have contributed to the set list. A super great guy and a true tragedy.
Check out "Felt Like Making A Live Record" for a bit of his live flavor. Definitely give "Spirit Touches Ground" a listen as well."
