Album Review

At once his most accessible work and also very experimental, Tibbetts' first album was released independently in 1976 before being picked up by Frammis. He began recording it while an art student at Macalaster College in Minnesota in the electronic music studio of the school on a four-track recorder. Still working on the album when he graduated, he ended up finishing it clandestinely late at night by sneaking into the school. The resulting album of totally self realized songs is great fun to listen to, as he used the studio as an instrument, mixing tape loops and effects with impressionistic acoustic guitar playing. Even at this young age, he's equally at home with finger style guitar, psychedelic and world musics, and the soundscapes he creates are both introspective and adventurous. Highly recommended.

Customer Reviews

Great album by experimental musician

I remember finding the tape for this back in the early 80's.

I spent many nights sitting around mesmerized by the alien adventures provided by this recording.

Some of this reminds me a little of Michael Hedges, as far as the strictly acoustic parts. All it's missing is a nice flute accompaniment. "the wonderful day"

It's hard to believe he has such vision at such an early age, and he did all this on his own........ Nice!

It's also great to listen in a nice car stereo on long trips. Turn it up and enjoy the ride......... ;-)
