Alone Again - Doug Smith $15.00 $10.05

The success of Doug’s Alone at Last solo CD prompted this new collection of succulent solo acoustic instrumentals. This new CD is not just a new bunch of tunes: it also represents Doug’s fi nest hour. This is arguably Doug’s fi nest outing to date. And it’s totally Doug Smith: Doug not only wrote and played all the tunes, he served as producer as well. As you listen, you can’t help but be amazed and touched. This a rare type of music that’s full of warmth, humor and beauty.
“Inviting melodies…stunning fingerpicking.”
~ ~ Billboard

 Doug Smith, "Alone Again", Solid Air SACD 2036, 2002
 One of the best-kept secrets of the music world is a magically talented
 fingerpicker with the oh-so-common name of Doug Smith. Sounds like the boy
 next door, right? Well, this Doug Smith doesn1t sound like any boys I grew
 up next to. Smith is a weaver of beautiful melodies who plays as clean as
 anyone recording guitar today, and based on his previous recordings,
 shouldn1t enjoy such anonymity. "Alone Again" is Smith1s sixth release. He
 has done great duo work with Paul Chasman and Mark Hanson, but this is his
 first record featuring just him and one guitar. His compositional strengths
 - belying a classical guitar background - come through on every one of the
 12 tracks of the CD. The opener, "Beyond the Clouds" shows Smith1s ability
 to dance over a melody line while developing multiple voices. Fingers flash
 on "Out of the Darkness", but as he drives us through, his touch is never
 out of control, so he keeps us with him for the entire ride. His playing
 jumps easily from Celtic-tinged pieces like "Dance of the Gnomes" to the
 tapping of "Millennium Force" to the Travis-picking "South Run". He paints a
 wonderful version of Turlough O1Carolan1s "The Right Reverend John Hart",
 agonizing over the melancholy yet sweet tune. Sometimes, you1re left
 wondering if you1re hearing just one guitar; other times you1re glad it1s
 just one. Doug Smith may not be the boy next door, but hopefully he1ll soon
 be as well known.
