VARIOUS 'Flatpicking 2000'

  • $13.50


Now a yearly feature of the Virginia-based FLATPICKING GUITAR MAGAZINE, these annual guitar samplers have become welcome additions to the huge number of recordings coming out, in that they always seem to introduce the listener to some heretofore unknown talent. This, the 4th in the series, contains another 21 recordings, each taken from a different album. The sources are carefully noted, even with photos of their respective album covers, making it easy for the fan to zero in on his favorites and track down otherwise little known albums. Artists heard here range from the well-known (Steve Kaufman, George Shuffler, James Alan Shelton, Richard Bennett & Chris Jones), to upcoming artists like Curtis Jones, Bull Harman, Steve Kilby and Gary Cook. As usual, there are super cuts like Kenny Smith & Tim Stafford’s ANGELINE THE BAKER, and Curtis Jones’ BETTER DAYS (with Shawn Lane, Alison Brown, Dan Tyminski & Missy Raines), but most everything is at least interesting. There are several tracks here with vocals, but for the most part the tunes are pure intrumentals, and we recommend this as an enjoyable & worthwhile album.
