Album Review

Reissued on ECM from original independent label release in Minneapolis. A perfect study item in regards to recording techniques and musicality. Guitarist has no boundaries on this insistently creative set. ~ Michael G. Nastos, Rovi

Customer Reviews

A technical and compositional masterpiece

I loved this album when I first heard it on vinyl in 1979 (!) and it still blows me away. Tibbetts spans the range from Leo Kotke to Jimmy Hendrix and beyond in a single song. Anderson holds it all together. I challenge you to buy the first song, listen to it in its entirity, and afterwards say you still think about music the same way. I wish they would issue another album like Yr, getting back to that deep Minnesota Ur-psychedelic foundation. If you every have a chance to see him live (a rare pleasure, he seems to tour only once about every "ten years") don't miss it.

unique, unmatched

Beautiful songs, virtuosic playing. A shame that Tibbets is not more widely known, given that his talent surpasses so many who have been labeled as great.

Happy Happy Happy

I am sooooo glad to have found this on iTunes. I lost the album years ago and had not been able to replace it. You can not buy just one of the songs, they flow together flawlessly.
