5.0 out of 5 stars Golden Morn From Golden Oldie, 13 May 2010
By

(VINE VOICE)   
This review is from: SHINING MORN (Audio CD)
Gordon Giltrap is not the most aggressively self-promoting of musicians, but over the course of four decades has quietly built up a reputation as a musician of awesome playing technique and tunefulness. 'Shining Morn' is the umpteenth, and latest example of the man's music, with a generous running time and truly breathtaking cross-section of musical styles. There is much to admire and enjoy in this album, and the moods shift from sun-dappled beauty to more strident and sharper sounds. Gordon doesn't know how to make a bad record, and 'Shining Morn', plus the superb Edsel reissues are welcome additions to the man's absorbing and hugely enjoyable body of work. Why isn't GG as lauded as (his hero) Bert Jansch of John Renbourn? Maybe he's just too modest!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful compositions, 10 Oct. 2010

This is an excellent album full of very beautiful music.
Yes Gordon is an outstanding guitarist but more important than that is that he is a very, very good composer. There are some absolutely lovely pieces of music on this album which should last forever. Without sounding too morbid I sincerely hope that in fifty years time there will be a guitarist in a concert hall somewhere playing Gordon's music; ensuring that new people will always be able to discover his achievements.

A Kid's Review
This review is from: SHINING MORN (Audio CD)
A SHINING MORN has a wonderful range of moods that produces an album to suite all occasions. The Dodo's Dream is a great piece, made more special for having seen it performed live. For those not aware Dodo's Dream is recorded just as you hear it; it is multi-tracked with Gordon playing on one guitar and laying the next track straight over the top of the one he has just played.

Another lovely album by a true master of the guitar. Gordon has continued to make quality music for years and is still at it, both in the recording studio and with live performances. If you haven't visited his website yet, you should, for more examples of his music and to get a sense of what a modest, yet really talented musician he is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Here's Gordon ! Shining again, 17 Sept. 2010
This review is from: SHINING MORN (Audio CD)
The uber-cool may not namedrop Gordon Giltrap but his work is maddingly difficult not to like. There's exquisite technique, playful invention, an Arcadian heart but mainly, like this set demonstrates, a bagful of memorable tunes.
