Synopsis

Product Description
Winner of the 1997 GRAMMY® Award for Best New Age Album, "Oracle" is one of Michael Hedges best. "Oracle" signified a return to acoustic performance, but the record was the last to be issued during Hedges' own lifetime. One of the most revered acoustic guitarists of all time created a wonderful and innovative album that even includes a few covers - the Beatles' "Tomorrow Never Knows", Frank Zappa's "Sofa No. 1", and Henry Mancini's "Theme from Hatari!" The album spent 26 weeks on the Billboard Top New Age Albums chart.

CD Reviews

Michael Hedges - Oracle....BRILIANT
William P. Borden | Clovis, New Mexico | 11/14/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Always wondered how you would answer the question "if I were stranded on a deserted island, what music would you take?" This one is without a DOUBT at the top of my list. Michael's untimely death STILL wracks me to this day. The man was just beginning to blossom. I can say without hesitation that this CD is the single most important piece of modern acoustic guitar ever made. The emotion laid forth on each and every song is unmatched. Strong enough review for you? Buy it, and if you do not like it, I WILL BUY THE COPY FROM YOU!!! If I had 100 copies of this album, I would be fine with that!

"Who was Michael Hedges? One of the greatest acoustic guitar players ever, for sure, and a brilliant composer, but much more than that. His total mastery of technique enabled him to transcend the boundaries of his instrument and to speak with a direct connection to his soul. Not a striving to reach such a state, but the outpouring of a true master, of one who has attained it. I hear his music and no longer wonder about the reason for existence. Not to say that all of his music attains this lofty level, but a great deal does. Oracle might not be his best work, (although it is my personal favorite) but it's definitely in the top three."
