The album feature for this week of 4/25-30 is a new addition to the library. Roye Albrighton's The Follies of Rupert Treacle. It's not a new album, since it was release in 1999, but it's something I stumbled upon and sent in to Jim.

Roye Albrighton was the creative force of Nektar and their guitarist. This album was his first solo effort (as far as I can tell). On this you'll find he's come a long way since the 70's, merging other musical genres and stylings into his creations. I hear the influence of several guitarists in his work, or perhaps it's emulation. All-in-all, it's a nice showcase for Roye's compostion skills and guitar work, as he does take a couple of good rockin' licks from time to time.

Here's a link to his site to learn a little more about him and check out some of the other groups he has played with recently.

I hope you enjoy.

Thanks Gooze. I appreciate the feedback.

In fact, everyone, I'd love to hear from you as well just cause I don't get to hang out like I used to to see your comments. Please feel free to do so here. Otherwise, I might think you're not listening.

Well, time to make the rocks. Cya later.

I agree with thegooze.
I preferred this one to some of the old Nektar catalogue. A pleasant surprise that sounded almost Camelish. Thanks again Dale.
