Runoff Review

by Richard Meyer

Chis Proctor is one of the experimental and technically brilliant steel string guitarists who emerged following the success of Leo Kottke. On this album, Proctor uses a variety of tunings and dynamic approaches. This is a beautiful and mostly peaceful collection of instrumentals. The guitar sound is reminiscent of Kottke's 1970 6 & 12 String Guitar album, and some of the melodic turns are in a similar vein, but he has staked out enough new territory to stand alone. A worthwhile album to seek out for fans of John Fahey and his descendants.
