Album Notes
Rathor combines his powerful fingerstyle guitar with the Kenny Loggins Band for a tour de force of original instumental music ranging from from solos to selections with various combinations of the band.

Also guest appearances by Larry McNeely, Alan Thornhill and Martin Young makes this a most unusual and unique contribution to any guitar lover\'s collection.

The legendary Lenny Breau had this to say about Rathor and this record...

\"Raj and I have been friends for a few years now. I first met him in Nashville, I was teaching there, and he came to study with me all the way from California. So I knew he had to be serious about his music.

When I listen to his album I hear all the same influences I had in my lifetime: Country,Jazz, Folk, Indian. Some of the people I know he has listened to are Chet, Merle, Reed and banjo players, and I also hear a bit of me in there too, ha ha.

I think his music has a universal sound. It paints pictures of times and places and evokes a full range of emotions.

Also, when I am listening to his album I hear a lot of Raj.

I think this music is great! Good luck Raj and all the best.\" Lenny Breau

Genelle Baltutis

excellent album
If you have a pulse, you will love this album. It's full, complete, and works as a whole. The songs have real range, and show deep-rooted talent. Buy this, you won't regret it.

Dave Rice

Multi-faceted Guitarist Generates a lot of Sound
Wish I could have listened to more of this man's work. Of the four tunes, Robyn struck me as the most artistic of the bunch. Would have awarded five stars but he's right on the edge of greatness. Interesting music. Never dull.

Looking for great things from you, Raj.

All the best,

Dave Rice

Magnificent acoustic guitar worth the price and more. Buy it.
When I heard this record for the first time I was amazed at the tecnical ability of Mr. Rathor. After a few listens the beauty shines through and you realize you are listening to something special. Thank God the internet can deliver a CD to a large audience where a record company has problems. If you love acoustic guitar you will listen to this record over and over again. A great piece of music from an up and coming artist.
