Susan Alcorn

And I Await The Resurrection Of The Pedal Steel Guitar

Label: OLDE ENGLISH SPELLING BEE

Format: Vinyl LP

Genre: Folk

Out of stock

This is the fifth solo offering by the Houston, Texas-based pedal steel sorceress, Susan Alcorn. 'The Heart Sutra' opens and is inspired by the 'Sutra of the Heart of Transcendent Wisdom' which was delivered by Buddha 2,500 years ago. It is a beautiful, yet solemn work that reverberates from within, as Susan strums those magical strings. The title track, 'And I Await the Resurrection of the Pedal Steel Guitar' was inspired by Messiaen's 'Et Expecto Ressurectionum Mortuorum'. It is a near 16-minute epic of stirring, haunting sounds. Each note is stretched out and floats like a spirit on the wind in a graveyard. Ms. Alcorn's approach to the pedal steel guitar is completely unique and she doesn't quite sound like anyone else. If one is patient enough, they will realize that she makes every note and space count.
