Editorial Reviews

2009 release from the acclaimed guitarist. The Freak Of Araby is a new direction for our distinguished gentleman, and just in the nick of time as well. Sir Rick's had it up to here with solo acoustic guitar records! The Freak Of Araby isn't even a solo record! And there's no acoustic guitar on it! So let's have no more of this kind of talk. Drag City.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sir Richard Bishop / Captain Ahab in the Desert June 5, 2011
By Keene
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I don't know, man. Maybe it's me. This is so good. Surf guitar in the desert! Sexy middle eastern themes that bring to mind Sergio Leone's westerns. Strange but it works. This album is so good that's it's a cryin' shame. This man can play the bucket like a whirling dervish and leave you wanting more. Why is this artist not better known? There is no justice in the music industry. Get this and listen. I know I'm not crazy.

I don't think I am.
