Stefan Grossman & John Renbourn

Acoustic Guitar (East World EWLF 98001)
Japanese limited edition direct cut disc.



An excellent album by two of the world's best acoustic guitarists. This is unlikely to get a CD release - it's a direct cut recording, therefore no master tape to make a CD from, just the original master disc. This does mean that the sound quality is stunning and just goes to show how much better vinyl can be compared to almost any of the digital formats.

Tracks:
1. Mississippi Swamp March
2. My Creole Belle/Katz Rag
3. Spirit Levels
4. Twelve Sticks
5. Cocaine Blues
6. Sake And Jelly Roll
7. Bonaparte's Retreat/Billy In The Low Ground

Tablature for all the tracks is included with the artwork.

Note: the track numbering is slightly wrong on the uploaded files - there is not a track missing, just me starting the numbering wrong on the second side.

For another piece of direct cut sound heaven see gonzo's blog.

Got this one on LP a few months ago, and it does sound phenomenal! The version of "Spirit Levels" is amazing!

Great guitar work from these guys as usual, but I've always wondered how Stefan Grossman could possibly think that his singing was worth putting on record... I cant stand it, especially when he warbles out some classic old country blues with that new york city bagel accent.
