George Gruhn said about this acoustic, fusion-driven improvisational guitarist, “By all accounts....when the likes of Jerry Garcia and Jorma Kaukonen were still figuring things out, Perry Lederman was one of the finest finger-pickers in the country".

Album Notes
"Perry was one of the great fingerpickers of the 1960s, a friend and influence to artists including Bob Dylan, John Fahey, Michael Bloomfield, Jerry Garcia, and many, many others. Somehow, though, he never quite got around to making a record until the last months of his life. Perry was a marvelously soulful, funny, insightful, and imaginative player." --Elijah Wald, who produced this CD, is an American folk blues guitarist, music historian and author of "Dylan Goes Electric!".

Liner notes by Elijah and Al Young, tell about Perry's music and his legend. Al said, "….Indeed, Perry knew what sounded musical and what didn’t. Genre didn’t matter. He and I would listen to every kind of music available in those days – the folk hub spoked off in every direction, even back to crassly commercial pop sounds – and Perry could always separate the wheat from chaff, whether we were taking in an Odetta LP, Woody Guthrie, Barney Kessel, flamenco, Leadbelly, Lonnie (Rock Island Line) Donegan, Cannonball Adderley, Dion and the Belmonts, Greek bouzouki stuff, the Shirelles, Nina Simone, Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, that early Ravi Shankar album on the Pacific Jazz label, French-Canadian fiddle music, British songster Ewan MacColl, Charles Mingus, the Carter family, the Staple Singers, Glenn Gould, Jascha Heifetz, John Cage, the Weavers, Elvis Presley, Mexican mariachis, Muddy Waters, Little Richard, Rev. Gary Davis, Robert Johnson, vintage Lonnie Johnson, Leroy Carr with guitarist Scrapper Blackwell, or Washboard Sam with Big Bill Broonzy and Memphis Slim."

"What Perry Lederman was up to during the swift 50 years he graced this planet would probably fill a fat stack of CD-ROMs. When I listen to the playing and singing preserved on this album .... a sweet sadness steals over me. I can't remember anyone in my time who has played with more soulfulness and light. " -- Al Young, poet, novelist and recent Poet Laureate of California.
