Recorded in 1989, this album of traditional airs played on the guitar as instrumentals, had a massive influence on finger-style guitar in the US and Europe and as far afield as Madagascar!
It continues to create ripples, which can, for instance, be heard in the playing of the excellent guitarist, Tony McManus. The guitar as a voice can be heard clearly on this CD.
