RAVE RE­VIEWS

Guitar Techniques - - TALK BACK -

I don’t know who’s do­ing your record re­views, but they de­serve a raise. That col­umn is quickly be­com­ing one of my favourite, and most valu­able, sec­tions of the whole mag­a­zine. I’ve been turned on to so much great mu­sic and so many great mu­si­cians I might not have oth­er­wise checked out if not for the very ac­cu­rate, well writ­ten, and spot on de­scrip­tions of the var­i­ous artists and record­ings they fea­ture. Most re­cent ex­am­ple: the five-star re­view of the lat­est Sonny Lan­dreth live record (GT 273), was ab­so­lutely on the money, and I can’t thank who­ever wrote that enough for mo­ti­vat­ing me to buy it. Mike Cosola Thanks, Mike. Th­ese days it tends to be mainly mu­sic edi­tor Ja­son Sid­well, plus some from David Mead and oc­ca­sion­ally a few from me. Ja­son’s are the most mu­si­cally in-depth (as you’d ex­pect) and it was he who re­viewed and raved about Sonny’s amaz­ing new re­lease.
