"Tom Smith may be one of America’s finest unknown acoustic guitarists. For this album the Bay Area picker has put together 13 solo pieces, played on banjo, bottleneck slide or his own homemade acoustic, and utilizing a variety of tunings that would do John Fahey proud. Semi-improvisational soundscapes like these are rarely overwhelming, yet Smith’s do have their subtle charm."
