(5 out of 5 stars)

"Born in Decatur,Illinois, Steve Hunter (not to be confused with
the Australian bassist who released "Night People") first gained
success with Mitch Ryder's DETROIT. They released the legendary
"Detroit with Mitch Ryder" LP in 1971 & "Get Out The Vote-Live"
recorded in 1972. The "Decatur Gator" has played lead guitar
for everyone from Peter Gabriel to Alice Cooper. Most notable
is his stellar work (with co-guitarist Dick Wagner) with Lou
Reed ("Rock N Roll Animal" "Lou Reed Live") & Alice Cooper
("Welcome To My Nightmare" & others). This CD, his 2nd solo release,was released in 1989 & now out of print. It is a great CD with stunning guitar playing. Fortunately, his first solo release,1977's "Swept Away", has finally been released on CD. Try to get your hands on "The Deacon" & 1989's "H Factor"(a collaboration with Climax Blues Band's Pete Haycock & Derek Holt).Both of these CDs are out of print & getting harder to find, but well worth the search. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!"

"Terrific album but incognito. It is an instrumental guitar album. This guy was playing with Alice Cooper and Lou Reed.Sometimes he gets western like in "Ghost riders", jazzy like "Pig jam", Pink Floydish like "The surge" or "The old man in the boat".My favorite track is "hidden portrait""
