I am an old acoustic music fan who drifted away. Acoustic Edge brought me back into the fold. Almost all of the cuts are solid strong pieces that reveal the power non-amplified music can have. I rediscovered old friends and found new ones. Richard Thompsons "Beeswing" is a soft etheral piece. Pat Donohue "Pig Iron" is a revelation. Overall it the album offers up strong pieces from musicians I automatically put in the acoustic folk category and surprising gems from musicians I put in the amplified pop/folk/jazz category.

I've bought quite a few of these Rough Guide albums. The first one I got was Mali&Guinea, which I loved, and it just rolled on from there. The international compilations are always good, especially if you like diversity. A problem with Rough Guides sometimes is that they try to include 'contemporary' music from various countries that has a local rather than international slant. But as we all know, folk and techno drumbeats usually don't work together.

To cut to the chase, I love this album because it is all acoustic. It is a very relaxed album, with a collection of outstanding artists such as Baaba Maal, Toumani Diabate and Cesaria Evoria. I think the best song is number five by Duquende. It is sublime.

In conclusion, while I'm sure there are one or two dodgy numbers here, I still give it five out of five because it has so many great songs.

Great selection of acoustic guitar music, from Leo Kotke's tragic but beautiful Driver to Richard Thompson's melancholy, delicate Beeswing (and let's not forget Ferron's beautiful Ain't Life a Brook, Peter Rowan's sensational Dust Bowl Children or David Wilcox's punchy Strong Chemistry)--there is not a single disappointing track on this album. I had it years ago, then lost it and couldn't live without it, so was glad to find it on Amazon.
