Desert Island Album
Joel W. Riehl | Issaquah, WA. USA | 03/28/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I first bought this album, on vinyl, in late 1975 or early 1976 - because I liked the cover. Knew nothing about the music. From the first spin, it was magic - and is no less so over the years. The music has a depth and complexity that rewards repeated listening with new revelations each time. 30 years of repeated listening. It has all the ineffable mystery, natural spirit, and grace of the Northwest coast. If I were stranded on a desert island, and could take only one record with me, Winter Light is it."

"OK.....I first heard this album ( not the CD) in the 1970"s when a great guitar making and playing friend in Chicago bought it for me. ( Hi Ed!) The first track hooks you and the rest follows suit. The sound is jazz-like but no big band or quartet tight ensemble here. Flute w guitar, wonderful soft but present percussion ( much more than I am able to describe ), synchopated and unsynchopated rhythm, that creates a sound native to no country. If you have a long commute, this music will stimulate yet relax the spirit and sharpen the mind. Enjoy ! Enjoy !"
