Gordon Giltrap - Elegy (1987) MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 90.65 MB | SCANS | Time: 37:58 Genre: New Age, World, Fusion, Acoustic, Neofolk | Label: Prism Entertainment (Japan) | Cat.#: CD 101
The first truly solo album by British guitarist Gordon Giltrap (his previous releases had featured a full band backing him), 1987's Elegy is pitched somewhere between the folk fusion experimentation of John Fahey and Bert Jansch and the more direct, pop-oriented work of rockers like Steve Hackett or Anthony Phillips. Less somber than the title would suggest, Elegy is a lovely blend of acoustic and electric guitars (with some bass thrown in to anchor the tunes, keeping the whole from floating into the new age ether) playing delicate folk-inspired melodies that tend toward simplicity and lyricism instead of either flashy notes-per-minute showmanship or treacly sweetness. It's not hard to imagine that if Mike Oldfield hadn't been so enamored of his overdubbing equipment and multi-instrumental excessiveness that he might have come up with an album quite similar to this in the early '70s.
