    The most intense solo acoustic performer I've ever seen. He didn't so much play guitar as at attack it for an hour straight, ending with the only words he spoke to audience of "I'm done."

    I only just realized that How the Thing Sings is supposed to play at 45 rpm after I went to transfer it to digital, and all the track lengths were way off. I can say it made the vocals more interesting at 33 rpm, but the album does make a little more sense at the correct speed. Edit: In my defense, it doesn't seem to specify the speed anywhere on the gatefold sleeve or the record.

    much as I love his stuff - he sounds NOTHING like Derek Bailey - it's a lazy comparison which does neither of them any favours. Bailey's playing is about a zillion times more nuanced than Orcutt's, and for the most part, is completely outside the blues idiom. This is no-wave with a barbed-wire enema up the delta...
