Album Notes
Closing Time is Doug Young’s second solo release, following on his well-received debut, Laurel Mill. With Closing Time, Doug continues to explore original compositions with a strong focus on melody, but also expands from pure solo guitar to a broader array of colors. The tunes on Closing Time include a number of purely solo guitar compositions and arrangements, while other tunes are arranged as duets, with Doug playing both parts. Besides traditional six-string guitars, Doug also incorporates a baritone guitar, a resonator, and ebow. He also collaborated with some outstanding Bay Area musicians to add other instruments, including guitar, mandolin, violin, percussion, and harmonica to the mix.

The songs range from some old favorites, like the Celtic aire, Jock O’Hazeldean and Doug’s novel take on the bluegrass and folk classic Wildwood Flower to tunes inspired by moods, like Autumn Roads, Rainy Sunday and the title track, Closing Time. Others are reflections on events, like the somber Cairo, and some are just plain fun, like Curly Q, Elephant Dance and Red Snapper.

Closing Time was recorded on a wonderful collection of instruments, mostly hand-built by some of today’s best luthiers, including Ed Claxton, John Mello, Kevin Ryan, and Tony Yamamoto, as well as classic guitars by Martin Guitars and National.

Closing Time was recorded, mixed and mastered at 96Khz, 24 bits using state of the art recording gear, including Brauner, AEA, and Schoeps microphones, Great River and AEA preamps, Cranesong analog to digital conversion and UAD, TC Electronic and Lexicon reverbs and other processors. For those with playback systems that can reproduce the full fidelity, a full resolution HD-Audio version is available as a download.

Closing Time well worth opening
Listening to this CD you'll discover 14 well written and well arranged gems. Doug has gone out of his way to make sure that everlasting ballads like "Jock O'Hazeldean" have been given a fresh, and at the same time heartwarming, arrangement. I never get tired listening to it. There is something for everyone on this CD, from traditional to fast-paced originals. The production value of this CD is excellent. I can see myself listening to it for many years to come. Doug is a very talented finger-style guitarist, and I wish him all the best with his future projects and endeavors.
