On this instrumental solo record, Sir Richard Bishop moves in as many directions as there are tracks on the album. Each composition is comprehensive and meaningful but with a completely different approach from the tune it succeeds or precedes. There are bright acoustic guitar pieces with Spanish, Middle Eastern or American Primitivism touches, one and a half swinging Django-esque tune, hypnotic electric guitar murmerings and a long and slow duel between a piano and a resonating guitar. These 45 kaleidoscopic minutes offer an intriguing insight in the compositional mind & moods of this underappreciated guitar hero. Fans of Jim O'Rourke, Six Organs of Admittance, Robbie Basho or (late) John Fahey really shouldn't miss out on this one. No one should, for that matter!

HASH(0x90a9d444) out of 5 stars Clear words from an old master 23 Jan. 2008
By Nomoreklondikes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Bishop's first record for Drag City sees a move to a bigger label and some broader brushstrokes. Bishop still moves through styles and obsessions at a rate faster than you can recognize them, as likely to break out into back-porch swing as a gypsy freakout. But for those for whom the Girls were always a bit too far out in the ether, Fragments -- as open-eyed and accessible as anything he's ever done -- is a great entry point to the Girls' fourth dimension. The kind of record that speaks the Girls' legacy in a clearer voice, it runs through all his passions and obsessions without ever seeming like a grabbag, taking in back porch americana, hyperactive flamenco and the now familiar oud-ish excursions, before finishing with 'Ecstasies in the open air', quite possibly the dreamiest things he's ever committed to tape.
