AllMusic Review by

The Lion and the Ram is an underrated gem in the Coryell catalog. It contains mostly acoustic guitar music and several outstanding original compositions. "Bicentennial Head Fest," "The Fifties," "Domesticity," and "Bach Lute Prelude" are fine examples of exciting, yet subtle and eclectic, improvisation-oriented guitar music. A few songs, such as "Song for My Friend's Children," are less successful than the others because of their dated '70s studio gimmickry, but overall this recording is well worth picking up.
