Editorial Reviews

Legendary guitar virtuoso Phil Keaggy has created an all-new masterpiece with this collection of instrumentals performed on the amazing McPherson acoustic guitar. Contemplative, melodic, and beautifully recorded, The Song Within raises the bar on Phil's already stellar recording legacy. Phil Keaggy has earned worldwide acclaim for his mastery of the guitar. His ability to play virtually any style with freedom and sensitivity is admired universally by guitar players and music lovers alike. His instrumental work includes such classic albums as The Master and the Musician and several Dove Award-winning albums including The Wind and the Wheat and Beyond Nature. For three years in a row, he was voted one of the top finger-style guitarists in the world by readers of Guitar Player Magazine. The Song Within is an all new acoustic instrumental album which offers a fresh collection of Phil's trademark memorable melodies and gorgeous atmospheric settings. The unmatched tone of Phil's McPherson acoustic guitar is joined by piano, cello, Irish whistles, strings, percussion and other instruments on songs that range from ambient to groovy. Perfect for lightening the hearts of listeners everywhere!

Everyone who knows about Phil Keaggy's playing recognizes his virtuosity. "The Song Within," an instrumental recording designed to showcase the rich sound of McPherson acoustic guitars, demonstrates not only Keaggy's virtuosity but also his amazing musicianship. His ability to create and recreate his own music with unpretending excellence is what make this CD so enjoyable.

The moods are mostly mellow but also include a funky jam (Early One Day), a few upbeat tunes (Wow's the Weather, The Blue Trail, Addison's Talk), a little ragtime (Water Day), a couple short ditty's (Trailwalker, McPhernought), and my personal favorite, the catchy and haunting Noah's Shuffle.

"The Song Within" is not going to be Keaggy's most critically acclaimed recording, but it is delightful and a very worthy addition to his remarkable catalogue of instrumental acoustic guitar recordings.

Another great Keaggy acoustic album. The McPherson guitars really sound great. Nothing will ever compare to his Olson's, but still wonderful guitars, and some cool tunes on here. Some favorites: Wow's the Weather, Secure (although this one sound a bit weird...maybe it's the drum machine track or the mixing, but still a very cool song), Early One Day (cool groove!), and Noah's Shuffle. The title track is pretty good too.

Overall, great acoustic effort by one of the true acoustic masters of all time, and a wonderful gentleman to boot. For me, it still doesn't hold a candle to his "Beyond Nature", which I would consider the best acoustic album of all time.

Phil Keaggy is the Master and Musician. In my humble opinion, of Phil Keaggy's 40 or so CDs, Beyond Nature is his best work. The Song within echos a close second. The liner notes even mention that the tunes have a Beyond Nature feel to them. This CD is acoustic guitar playing at its very best. The CD will bring a sense of "calm" peace to the soul. In a very mixed up world, this CD is worth having as it provides pure listening pleasure! Calm down, sit back, and enjoy the joyful sound of Phil Keaggy at his best and find the song within. MAD

Keaggy always seems to do something original and sweet. The Song Within is no exception. There is just enough melodic reminder of other albums to make it interesting, but no rehash. You can put this album on and do just about any work. Late at night, relax by the fire. Top two, though, are still Master and Musician and Beyond Nature.

another gem in the Phil Keaggy discography. I often find a few tracks on his instrumental albums that I could do without. Not this one. It has to be my favorite since Beyond Nature.

I have many of Phil Keaggy's excellent instrumental albums [as well as his vocal & band efforts], but this one is a standout both in terms of quality musicianship and as a presentation of multiple musical styles that are difference from many of his previous efforts. For example, several of the tunes remind me of some of my favorites from the late Chet Atkins, a style I did not typically associate with Mr. Keaggy's work.

In my book, Keaggy can do no wrong. Here is an exceptional guitarist who is comfortable in so many styles, but the best part is you can hear that he loves what he does-- we are all so lucky to have such an articulate, prolific composer/musician. Thanks Mr. K!
