Bring Back Sandy Bull Rhythmic Flow Master
Peter Rorvik | Durban, South Africa | 05/19/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Its nearly 30 years since I first heard this album and I still quote it as my all-time favourite music. All the world music fans who are band-wagoning on cross-cultural sounds should listen to this historically pioneering artist who blended North African and Middle Eastern textures within a western context into our experience, regrettably the experience of a small few, but hopefully a wider community of listeners to come. Not only important historically, but musically: a wide range of music genres over the last couple of decades have worked with drone-note principles and it is an increasingly common device, but Sandy Bull was/is a superlative master of utilising the drone sounds;understated but effective in creating sounds that vibrate and resonate within ones being in mesmeric meditative flow. Flow I think is an essential description of this album, for it is not an inane lift-lobby new age meditative music, and neither anything jarring, it is fluid and flowing, like a perfect wave unwinding along a perfect point. And the perfection of the music lies in the way it allows you like a surfer to find your own flowing journey along this mesmeric but spaciously unfolding wave. I still have the LP but am seeking the cd,please!"
Gone but not forgotten

"like other great artists and creative people in the 60s-70s, Hendrix, Joplin, Morrison, Buckley... Sandy Bull passed on. But anyone listening to his recordings will never forget or confuse him with any other guitarist. It's not just a 60s record, it's an inspirational record. If you play or enjoy really good guitar, get this."
Amazing music, especially for its time

"I kept this album for years until it almost wore out, taped it, held onto the precious get the idea. It amazed me to see him listed on this website. It sure would be SWELL if it could be reissued as a CD!!! It would be even sweller if he'd record something new!"
