Up Close

"Never one to be considered “prolific,” Eric Johnson has emerged from his studio with a new collection of tunes that gives anxious fans just what they want: great playing, great tone and a Texas-size dose of soul. This is the first album that was recorded entirely in Johnson’s home studio (which was took Johnson 15 years to build). The sound of the record doesn’t come across as sterile as previous studio albums and the addition of some guests really adds to the looser vibe."

review by Jason Shadric on primier guitar.

Wow 15 years! I can understand guys like me, but he sure takes long time to do things. Can't be a lack of funds?

Had a listen to couple of samples, defently more depth then previous albums. Any body out there mix these songs? Good stuff!

when you are so anal that you say you can hear the difference between the battery door being on your stomp box or not . . . . can you imagine how anal he must be in recording and mixing a record? I admit he is talented (though not my thing) but he would drive me absolutely crazy.

For anyone interested, went home and found the youtube video of Eric explaining the gear in his studio.
