5.0 out of 5 stars Only two reviews so far? October 6, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This must be a reissue or something if only two people wrote reviews. And one of them wasn't impressed! Maybe it's not Carlton's most rockin', but it's not typical instrumental slap-together doggerel, either. It's a "smooth jazz" analog for Coltrane's "Ballads" - a rare virtuoso in a mellow mood. And to be fair, the album is upfront about being downtempo; it's called "Sleepwalk."

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice to see Larry's back catalog available once again!!! December 20, 2007
By M. Zito
Format:Audio CD
I haven't heard any of Larry's older cd's in twenty+ years I'd guess. I saw him Live in 86. He was awesome.

I just ordered "Strikes Twice" and I can't wait to hear it again. As I recall "Strikes Twice" is his most aggressive playing album.

For people that don't know you can also hear some great classic LC on Steely Dans "The Royal Scam" album. Great solos on "Kid Charlemagne".

Cheers,
Matt

5.0 out of 5 stars LARR'S GUITAR LOWERS MY HEART RATE.! February 9, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
EVERY TIME I GET TOO UPTIGHT, LARRY CARLTON'S MUSIC TAKES ME TO A PLACE WHERE I CAN THINK MORE CLEARLY ONCE AGAIN. BESIDES THAT I DANCED ON THE BEACHES OF MAUI BACK IN 1989 ON MY HONEYMOON TO SLEEPWALK, AND THAT BECAME "OUR SONG". SMILES AND SMILES, BUBBLE SHUFFLE ETC. ETC.THEY ARE ALL SO GREAT. THANK YOU LARRY FOR ENDLESS MOMENTS OF PLEASURE. BRIAN D. DEILY

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent Sound Quality, Not So Great MLPS Design! October 25, 2012
Format:Audio CD
As far as mini-lp replica sleeve (mlps) releases go this one isn't going to wow collectors although the sound quality is very good showing that Larry Carlton is a decent producer in his own right. The cardboard material used is cheap and the assembly average and is certainly a long ways off from the better mlps releases that I've seen even from Warner Brothers. Included is an 8-page booklet containing an essay by Tadashi Narita but totally in Japanese.

With regards the content, this album ranks among Larry Carlton's better works and he is helped by Jeff Porcaro of Toto, Steve Gadd, David Sanborn among other great session musicians. Mr 335 also uses a Valley Arts Strat ("Sleepwalk", "10:00 P.M.", "Last Nite") and a Guild Blues Bird ("Blues Bird") on half the tracks here so that we get a variation in guitar tones to make for a more interesting listening experience. Too many people mistake great guitar playing with speed but those in the know will tell you that great guitarists have a great tone, accuracy, feel and phrasing so that you can identify them just from listening to what they play and Larry Carlton has all these qualities which is amply shown on tracks like "Sleepwalk" and "10:00 P.M." which are the standout tracks here although the rest of the album are far from even remotely resembling filler. In fact, speed while a useful tool actually ranks among the least important attributes of a great guitarist. That said it doesn't mean that Larry Carlton doesn't have speed as anyone who has heard his early work with Steely Dan can attest to this guy can shred! In fact, I still prefer his early work like his fantastic solos throughout "Kid Charlemagne" which is really what makes the track so great.

5.0 out of 5 stars A master's touch.... June 24, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Larry Carlton is the rarest of birds...as a player his touch and feel are peerless. Do you love great instrumentalists?... this album is wall-to-wall beautiful tone and phrasing. No there are no rock jams like "Kid Charlemagne", but the cliche-free rock edginess of that tune is not the only feather in Carlton's cap...music just pours out of this guy...he's got the delicate vocal touch of B.B. and Clapton, but with a voice all his own. I don't much care for labels like 'smooth jazz' or 'pop' as they not only tend to turn people off (myself included) they also do not represent the content of a record like this (although "smooth jazz" may be completely appropriate referring to Kenny G.)...that being said, this is a kind of instrumental R&B record with Larry's guitar in the role of vocalist...thankfully it has a live feel and warm 70's analog production. It is a delicate set of music, but I mean this in a very good way, as it is very dynamic. And check out the none-too-subtle nod to Jeff Beck's "Scatterbrain" on "You Gotta Get It While You Can"...
