I've been a Satch fan for a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG time now. Sad to say this was a CD I was very much looking forward to and when I tried to play it today, I must have skipped over at least five tracks. I agree that there is some good material here, title track, Asik Veysel, and Andalusia. The rest should have been left out. I would have much preferred him to release an a handful of new studio songs and coupled it with some live tracks from this Surfing With the Alein anniversary shows last summer.
"People can hurl any epithet they want about the snobbishness they think audiophiles retain. Let them drink their wine from boxes. The sound of my Bob Ludwig–mastered pressing of Led Zeppelin's Houses of the Holy coming through my system cuts through their contempt like Toshiro Mifune's katana blade!" - Henry Rollins
