Album Notes
Richard Wiegel has been a fixture on the Madison,Wisconsin music scene for more than 30 years. In groups like The Midwesterners, Johnny and the Hawaiians, Out of the West, The Swing Crew, Clicker and the Bowery Boys, Richard's guitar work has always been exciting and stirring.
Now he has added solo acoustic performance to his credentials. Combining several genres of music, from rock to ragtime, blues to jug band music, jazz to rockabilly, Richard blends them seamlessly into an entertaining album.
Taking a cue from Chet Atkins, Doc Watson, and Mississippi John Hurt, Richard plays in the finger-picking style pioneered by these greats. And now his new CD, "Out of the Blue", pays tribute to these men. It's a collection of some of the greatest songs of the last century, from St. Louis Blues and Deep Water Blues, to La Vie En Rose and A Good Girl is Hard To Find, and even a finger-picking version of a Chuck Berry song, The Thirteen Question Method. Guitar and vocals were all done live in the studio, adding a measure of immediacy to the performances. Recorded at DNA Studios, and mixed at Smart Studios in Madison by Mark Haines, top quality was assured.

Out of the Blue
Put on the CD, kick back let your mind start to float. Great music - do duds on this disk.

Stan Johnson

Wannabe fingerpickers if you have tears prepare to shed them now
Out of the Blue is a delightful collection of fairly well known music that is played(and sung)very satisfyingly by Richard Wiegel. He may not in the finger-picking ranks of Doc or Merle Watson, but Wiegel knows his way around the frets and his untrained (apologies if I am wrong) voice is just the right timbre for this CD. His instrumental rendition of La Vie En Rose is hauntungly compelling. This is a fine CD and will be part of my regular rotation of blues in the night.

Mike Stanton

A superb recording!A delight from start to finish.
