Chris is not entirely correct when he writes " only three of these artists would do anything more -- Steve Tilston, Pete Berryman, and Willy Barrett..." since Davey Murrell was well known on the English Folk Club Circuit, and Philip John Lee did have a following on the smaller flamenco scene.Overall though, Chris gets it right when he comments about nimble fingers not being enough, since on many of these tracks, whilst one can admire the dexterity shown, it is depressingly hard to identify an actual tune, Simon Boswell being a prime offender. It is also obvious that on several tracks the player/composer is utilising a non standard tuning so as to facilitate open string playing, which somehow strikes me as cheating. TBH this is very much an album for the acoustic guitar player, rather than an album for those who enjoy listening to acoustic guitar music.
