"In his follow up to 1987's "Speechless," "Gagged but Not Bound" Albert Lee continues both his wordplay and foray in a mixed bag of instrumental tunes. His considerable talent rises to the top even if the material lags a bit (Schön Rosmarin and Oklahoma Stroke are not the best showcases). Mr. Lee, one of the finest guitarist on the planet, picks his way around traditional numbers such as the Flowers of Edinburgh, covers such as Don't Let Go (the bank of saxophones really bring this number to life), Tiger Rag, and Forty Miles of Bad Road, and a couple of original tracks, Fun Ranch Boogie and Monte Nido (though on the latter is Mr. Lee sounding a lot like George Winston on solo piano--which is fine). When he cuts loose, it's pretty clear why so many in the know respect Mr. Lee for his finesse and his lightning fast speed. The sound is crisp, precise, and all business. Just a touch more heart and soul might bring this recording up a notch."
Master Guitarist's Excellent 1988 CD

(4 out of 5 stars)

"After playing behind everyone from Skeeter Davis to Emmylou Harris, from Joe Cocker to the Everly Brothers, even "Slowhand" himself, Lee continued his solo career in the late '80s with 'Speechless' (1987) and 'Gagged but Not Bound' (1988), both issued by MCA and both critical successes. The master musician plays unworldly guitar on this acoustic/electric country-, rock-, and traditional-oriented masterpiece. Exquisitely recorded. - Jeff Tamarkin, AMG
