    Un compositeur habité, inspiré par je ne sais quelle muse, quel symbole ou quel rêve. Des morceaux d'une inspiration folle, toujours feutrés dans un jeu de guitare tantôt délicat, tantôt aérien mais toujours fabuleusement lyrique.

    "The Erlking" ou la mise en musique de la célèbre créature de Goethe signé Steve Gillette. Un morceau qui n'a rien a envié à la facture romantique de la version Schuberienne. Les guitares tourbillonnantes sont plus belles et enivrantes que les envolées de n'importe lequel des violons et la voix plus imprégnée du texte que n'importe lequel des chanteurs lyriques.

    Un disque d'une beauté intouchable. Il sera le premier et le dernier chef d’œuvre de Steve Gillette qui se voyant dans l'impossibilité d'égaler ce premier bijou, se contentera de poursuivre sa route musicale en se bornant à une country/folk de bonne facture mais bien en dessous des dispositions musicales du bonhomme.

    A vous de juger... Pour moi, c'est un des tous meilleurs !
    Steve Gillette was one of a great many singer-songwriters to emerge during the early-60s folk scene.  Although he was working as a professional musician since at least 1964 (when he co-wrote what is probably his most famous song, “Darcy Farrow”), this was the only album he released during the 1960s, which may be one reason why he has remained obscure.  The prevailing sound of the album is muted and ethereal; the music seems to emerge from a deep blue haze.  The songs (almost all written by Gillette and/or long-time collaborators Tom Campbell and Linda Albertano) tend to have a strong traditional-ballad influence, particularly “Darcy Farrow”, “The Erlking”, and “Springtime Meadows”.
    Superb US Folk Rock with Folk Psych touches.....his 1st and best album with backing from Bruce Langhorne, Dick Rosmini & Bill Lee. The album has some truly magnificent songs and some wonderful dual guitarwork. It includes the original versions of 'The Erlking', 'Back On The Street Again', 'Darcy Farrow', '2:10 Train', 'Springtime Meadows', 'Many The Times'....but just about every track is excellent. It has to be one of the best Folk Rock albums ever recorded!
