Guillory, Isaac - Isaac Guillory Isaac Guillory
Pop New - LP SD 7307 Atlantic
Sealed, Rare 1974 Original. Saw Cut. Guillory Came To Earn The Reputation As One Of The Best Guitarists Ever. Many Guitarists Today Emulate Techniques Guillory Evolved In The Early 70's While Living In The South Of Spain. A Particular Signature Technique That He Developed Was 'Hybrid Picking', Where He Would Sustain A Bass Line With A Plectrum Held Between His Thumb And First Finger, Whilst Picking Chord And Melody Lines With His Second And Third Fingers. With Spare Accompaniment (A Little Bass And Drums Here And There, Touches Of Electric Guitar, And Even Tablas), It's Very Much Guillory's Show And He Presents It With Aplomb. His Voice Was As Strong As His Fretwork, And His Songs Could Veer From Flowing Verse To A Halt Before Taking Off Into A Chorus. "Staying Awhile" Is Reminiscent Of James Taylor, But Without Any Saccharine Factor In The Road Song (And A Lovely Piece Of Electric Guitar Work From Guillory). There's A Melancholic Quality To Much Of The Material, And A Constant Sense Of Travel And Looking Back At His Homeland ("Sidewalks Of America" Remains As Relevant As It Was When First Written). Where There's A Sense Of Adventure It's Very Much In Tune With The Period, All Patchouli And Pot Smoke. But There's Still A Relentless New World Energy About The Disc That Means It Holds Up Very Well.... more details
