AllMusic Review by

This solo record by Sun City Girls guitarist Alan Bishop is an exquisitely dogmatic folk excursion in the mode of John Fahey and Robbie Basho. Sounding akin to a Folkways recording of the '60s era, the American primitive blues rubs up against the Sun City Girls' penchant for Eastern drone improvisation. Highly recommended to fans of the solo six-string improvisation and American primitive blues guitar, as well as those with a taste for the Sun City Girls' eclectic weirdness.
