A great cassette and a handful of very unique tunes for this guitar player known very well to be on the longer-side of the clock. Here we have a handful of shorter tunes that run through a variety of moods and even some with drum accompaniment, which turns out sounding great! The only downside (and perhaps this is a dubbing problem, perhaps it's a recording problem, and hell, maybe I'm the only one who experienced this?) is the sound quality. This tape sounds horrible. It's damp, muddy, and there are just none of the higher-frequency sounds that come through on lots of other McGuire tracks. Sounds like it was recorded on very low quality tape or else with uber-Dolby effect. Not great.
