The Review:

Multi-instrumentalist Rick Ray, according to his website, has put out several cds over the years. I wasn't unaware of Rick until he sent me his latest cd entitled "The Guitarsonist", which is an eclectic mix of various styles of rock and roll ranging from guitar-driven instrumentals to some humorist & fun sounding psychedelic.

The cd some wonderful instrumentals including the title track, The Guitarsonist, a smoking 7 minute guitar-driven instrumental showing not only is Rick a great guitar player but he can back himself up instrumentally. His vocal tracks sometimes remind me of early 70's Alice Copper, especially on a semi-psychedelic tune called "Psycho Sam" plus it features guest musician, Rick Schultz on various clarinets.
