Here's a lovely CD by Music For One. So you lonely folk with no one to share your music with finally have someone who cares about you. There really is something for everyone... the world is truly a beautiful place. 'The Red Thumb' is packaged in a delightful (I am happy today...) screen printed cardboard sleeve which immediately made me want to open it up and have a good poke around inside (always a pleasure). I twanged the CD on and it's all made by Sherry Ostapovitch and her acoustic resonator guitar. On the album are 12 beautifully played vignettes of delicate finger pluckery ala Basho and Fahey. They're almost sketches as they seem so sparse at times you'd wonder if they're finished or not. I think it leaves a lot to the imagination to be honest cos as I listen I feel much reasonably inspired to write and that doesn't happen too often these days. It's very soundtracky and very acoustic.... there's no electronics which were on previous albums so it's a more back to basics approach. In fact it reminds me of the Paris Texas soundtrack without all the slide guitar.... there's some definite similarities. Anyone into the whole solo acoustic guitar thing will love this as it's remarkably good! Check it.
