More recently he's become known for his books and columns on various popular guitar styles. This disc, drawn from his two Rounder albums, showcases over sixty minutes of a guitar master at work.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great guitar. Singer? Songwriter? Not so much... November 4, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I haven't heard any of his more recent albums. He is (of course) best known for his instructional books and videos. His touch is deft, funky without being overstated. I am not as high on his songs as such as the other reviewer, but they are good frameworks for his tasty playing and soloing. His singing is adequate.
His influences, esp. considering the date of this album are pretty obvious--his excellent slide playing on the first half of this album evokes Ry Cooder. A few cuts at the end (particularly the final cut) are obviously strongly influenced by Mark Knopfler. If you love these guys, you will enjoy this album--I know I did.

4.0 out of 5 stars Arlen Roth is a guitar master January 16, 2013
By Lit fan
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Arlen Roth demonstrates his incredible guitar skills, revealing nuanced, graceful melody, dynamic interplay, and overall production clarity. Most people know him from his Hot Licks music instruction DVDs (formerly VHS tapes!), but he truly lives to play guitar and make beautiful music. This CD is definitely an artistic triumph, and though he hasn't hit the big time in commercial radio, he is a genuine artist on 6 strings.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, not great December 1, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love Arlen Roth's guitar style and this CD showcases it, but it's not his best effort. Still, his pretty good is better than most. Worth the price, definitely.

4.0 out of 5 stars Guitar picking August 30, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Arlen Roth's guitar playing is wondrous. Half the album contains moody, instrumental pieces, whilst the second half has vocal, quirkier numbers. Not Her Usual Man and Poor Side of Town are worth the cost of the album on their own.
