Ackerman, William - It Takes A Year It Takes A Year
New Age Audiophile - LP WHS C 1003 Windham Hill
1977 Original Half-Speed Mastered By Stan Ricker. A New Age Classic. Appears Unplayed. “The Lyrical Strains Of "The Bricklayer's Beautiful Daughter" (The Memorable Opener On William Ackerman's Second Album) Confirm That The Artist Was On To Something Huge In Popular Music. Nobody Knew What To Call This New Breed Of Gentle Instrumental Adventurism. It Takes A Year, Like All The Early Windham Hill Albums, Was A Breath Of Pure Air At A Time When Pop Music Was Stuffed With Commercialization And Irrelevance. Ackerman Adeptly Blended Folk, Bluegrass, Jazz, And Classical Influences Into An Accessible, Mild-Mannered Hybrid Style, Strong On Emotional Expression And Lyrical Depth. Ackerman's Solo Technique Is Not Showy, And Others Like Leo Kottke And Michael Hedges May Have Been More Virtuosic In The Chops Department, Yet Ackerman's Trump Card Is His Impressionist Command Of The Acoustic Guitar. His Use Of Alternate Tunings, Overdubs, And A Sensitive Ear For Melody Helped To Trademark This Uncluttered Sound, Tuneful And Rich In Harmonic Overtones. Some Of The Up-Tempo Numbers Like "The Townshend Shuffle" Have A Bluegrassy Flavor And, In General, The Folk Influences Are Readily Apparent. But Ultimately The Music, Much Of It Composed In The Early '70s, Stands Out Because It Sheds The Musical Labels And Carves Its Own Space -- Deep Emotional Sentiments Set Into Calm And Reflective Backgrounds. It's An Open-Ended Sound, Well Suited To The Spaces Of California And The Western U.S. From Whence It Grew. Although The Production Quality Varies From Tune To Tune Making It A Less Consistent Set Than The Follow-Up Childhood And Memory, It Takes A Year Is Historically Important For New Age Collectors Because It Built Upon Ackerman's Debut And Set The Mold For Things To Come.” Jim Esch, AMG.... more details
