Long time Keaggy buffs, of which I'm one, who've long been bemused by the guitar Maestro's somewhat erratic albums have been hoping that his delightful 60's sounding "Sunday's Child" was the start of more consistent things and so it proves to be. On this new set the same co-producer Lynn Nichols (the rootsy Steve Taylor side kick), the same session musos (Rick Cua on bass, Mike Mead on kit) and the same "live" studio sound full of energy and a sense of joyful camaraderie connect to produce a delightful album. The songs are good as well, full of humable hooks, Phil sings with more confidence than of old while those stunning axe ids, sometimes recreating early 70's melodic rock memories, sometimes surging on into more contemporary territory are a joy to the ear.
