Ashra - Blackouts (1977) Retail CD
Prog-Rock/ Art Rock
After the gentle, dreamy "New Age Of Earth", Manuel Gottsching returned with a slightly meater, more rhythmic album with much more obvious guitar.
There's a lovely, simple beauty in the tracks here. The melodies are truly uplifting without being over complicated. That Manuel has real skill with the guitar is in no doubt, in fact it's the way he keeps it apparently simple that does it for me. I can think of one jazz/rock guitarist who was amazingly quick fingered and "clever", who ended up giving me a headache with his amazingly intellectual, lightning fast and cerebral recordings that ultimatelymore… went straight over my head...
It would appear that much recording was done by Mr Gottsching at this time. Many of the better ones have been released in recent years and the ones I've heard have been delightful.
Anyone who likes Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze etc. should investigate Ashra's body of work, certainly from the mid seventies onward. This disc still gets played regularly and it comes as genuine light(er) relief from some of the heavier stuff in my collection.
