A Great Innovator

(5 out of 5 stars)
"Gabor Szabo was a unique guitarist and fantastic musician whose sound is instantly recognizable once you hear his recordings. Listen for the use of open strings both in melodic lines and as drones, controled feedback, up-picking where other guitarists would use a downstroke, and more. This album does not contain his most creative work but demonstrates what a highly creative musician can do with some fairly ordinary pop tunes. Sadly only a small portion of his work is available on CD and hence I've given this album 5 stars whereas in the galaxy of all his recordings, it would get fewer."
