5 stars Well now isn't this most pleasant! If one has a taste for the acoustic guitar work that Mr. Phillips made famous, after a fashion, on Private Parts & Pieces V: Twelve, and many other albums throughout his wondrous career, then one simply must own this collection. It contains nothing but acoustic guitar pieces, and lots of them, spread out over two discs. Got a good book, and placid moment to spare? Need a CD to play on a cool spring day, whilst the rain patters on the roof outside? This is a great CD to pull off the shelf. There are others, yes, but this is quite nice.

Some of it seems vaguely familiar to me, namely "River Of Life" and some of the other blissful, haunting 12-string pieces at the end of disc one. Maybe it's just the type of similarities that one will inevitably hear from the oeuvre of an artist so prolific as Mr. Phillips.
