Debut solo CD from Jack Rose, combining his much-lauded Eclipse LP's Red Horse, White Mule and Opium Musick. While Red Horse, White Mule is generally recognized as in the Takoma-inspired tradition, Jack adds his own exotic influences and recognizable touch - whether abstracting on the modal epic "Red Horse" or the rough slide stylings of "The Colonel's Blues." Opium Musick is an eclectic collection with pieces for 12 string (the percussive and dark "Black Pearls), 6 string, and lap guitar. The two tracks featuring the lap guitar are duets. The lovely raga-ish "Yaman Blues" features Mike Gangloff on tanpura, and the near-ragtime of "Linden Ave Stomp" features Glenn Jones on his vintage Gibson. The 12 page booklet reproduces the liner notes from both LP's and adds a few snaps for fun. 9 Tracks, 68 Minutes.
