9/10 according to on Fri 08 Dec, 2006

And quickly before I sod off for the weekend to do more painting, putting shelves up and other potentially catastrophic things to our house UI wanted to mention this BERKELEY GUITAR CD/LP we just got in (self titled). Really excellent stuff along the lines of Fahey, Basho, Blackshaw etc.... if you like the sounds of twiddly acoustic guitar this sounds as good as anything I've heard (and I've only heard half of it so far!). We don't have many in (cos we hadn't heard it til now) so it may take a week or 2 to get more in! A quality release on Tompkins Square!

Press release

Berkeley Guitar is a collection of new recordings by three of the Bay Area’s finest young acoustic guitarists: Sean Smith, Adam Snider, and Matt Baldwin. The city of Berkeley and the acoustic guitar share a rich, decades-long history — most notably as the Sixties home base of Takoma Records, which released landmark recordings by John Fahey, Robbie Basho, Leo Kottke and many others. This history inspired three young guitarists from the Bay Area to create a document of the present-day guitar scene. Produced by Sean Smith and recorded and mastered at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley, CA, the package includes liner notes by Larry Kelp of Berkeley public radio station KPFA and Ed Denson, co-founder of Takoma Records. The album is available on CD and gorgeous limited edition deluxe gatefold vinyl.
