The first of two discs released simultaneously and sporting nearly identical covers recaps Leo Kottke 's early years from when he recorded for the Capitol label. As is indicated by the title, this features only Kottke 's amazing fretwork, bypassing the vocals that much of his audience dealt with in a grin-and-bear-it fashion. There is no previously unreleased material as there is on the companion disc Instrumentals: The Best of the Chrysalis Yearsbut many of these tracks are difficult to come by on CD, and having a compilation of Kottke 's instrumental music -- much of it totally solo -- makes for a cohesive -- some might say definitive -- portrait of the A Good Egg - Leo Kottke - Instrumental: The Best Of The Capitol Years jaw-dropping skills.
Incorporating strains of country, blues, folk, bluegrass, gospel, and even classical his version of Bach 's Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring Ruth Wallis - Kinfolk / Cape Canaveral astonishingKottke 's style is immediately recognizable and totally distinctive. Sure, he's fast and technically proficient, but the emotion and soul communicated through his acoustic guitar is mind-blowing.
Although his approach would ultimately lead others to new age, there is nothing here that is atmospheric or merely background music. Beautiful, difficult, quirky, but never flashy for the sake of show, Kottke 's singular style remains vital and influential to everyone who picks up an acoustic guitar.
