Review from Tune Up Magazine (excerpt)

What happens when you sit down two great guitarists like Davey Johnstone

& John Jorgenson with a couple of acoustic guitars , a Sony MDMX-4 mini

disc recorder, and the opportunity to make a recording without any

commercial restraints?

What you get is to be privy to some music that is made for the pure love

of music, and in my experience in music that is usually when the best

music is made. That is exactly what happens on Crop Circles. I guess

youd expect nothing less from these two monsters of the guitar, as they

not only play brilliantly, they also manage to blend together many

musical styles like pop,rock, jazz, celtic,blues, bluegrass, country &

some classical elements.

Another unique thing about this project was the way it was recorded. It

was recorded during some downtime during Elton Johns last world tour.

So the tunes were recorded in some pretty strange places like hotel

rooms & the backstage area of some of the venues that Elton was booked

at.

So who needs Sunset Sound when you have Holiday Inns all over America,

and all of the tunes were recorded with the Sony 4-track mindisc

recorder.

So I urge you to go out and get this disc, and to sit back and enjoy

some very inspired music, and thank God that there are record companies

out there that are willing to release great music like this
