Editorial Reviews

Product Description

An inspired player who has gained respect through his impressive guitar playing and world class bango playing. Mixes modern day music with traditional, creating a sound distinctly his.

Although he started his career as an award-winning banjo player, Tony Furtado has largely abandoned both that instrument and his bluegrass roots. Instead, he's focused on playing the guitar, composing, and singing, carving a distinctive niche of folk/blues originals and covers that resonate with agile picking and dusky vocals. His second live album is, as its title suggests, a solo affair that cherry-picks from his catalog and adds newly recorded, imaginatively rearranged covers of Tom Petty's "Running Down a Dream" and the Beatles' "I Will."

With a playing style that shows the influence of Ry Cooder, Leo Kottke, and Jorma Kaukonen, Furtado's nimble fingers show a jaw-dropping proficiency on his instrument. But even at his most flashy, he never lets his impressive technical prowess detract from the introspective, often poignant songs such as the heartbreaking instrumental "Can You Hear the Rain" and the traditional folk of "False Hearted Lover's Blues." Furtado kicks up his slide on a raging and passionate version of the old prison work song "Oh Berta, Berta" and a dizzying "Cypress Grove Blues." The exquisite recording quality of this live document brings clarity to every note as Furtado weaves his web of folk magic and mystery with chilling and hypnotic intensity. --Hal Horowitz

5.0 out of 5 stars Roots of Rock April 13, 2005
Format:Audio CD
If you are one of the fortunate people who have seen Tony Futado play slide guitar and banjo, then this CD is a must have for you collection. If you have never heard Tony, this is a great place to start. It takes a lot of courage to walk on to a stage alone armed only with acoustic instuments, and I can think of no one who does it as well as Tony does here. The "Angry Monk", "St John's Fire" and "Berta" all crackle with energy. Tony's cover of "Runnin' Down the Dream" is inventive and inspiring. This CD is exactly what Tony's fans have been asking for. Roots music stripped down to its "Bare Bones."

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this album July 14, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Tony Furtado was a discovery for me based on hearing a song from this album on a local radio station. The whole album is wonderful, and it has been getting frequent rotation on my carousel for months. One of the most satisfying live albums I own.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the one!!! December 3, 2008
Format:Audio CD
This is the way that I saw Tony, alone, solo, with his guitar and banjo. I had never seen or knew of him until this summer (2008) in Denver, and his style is amazing. If you can't see him on the road this is the next best thing!!! Try it!!!
