Robert Reed - Sanctuary II album review

Album Review

Second chapter in multi-instrumentalist Robert Reed’s Oldfield Variations.

S_anctuary II_ begins with high keyboard drones and Les Penning’s recorder evoking wide-open skies, just as he did at the beginning of Oldfield’s Hergest Ridge. This segues into another instrumental section which culminates in lead guitar with that unique, slightly whinnying sound that makes one think that this time, surely that’s got to be Oldfield guesting, playing his old Gibson SG through the original amp set-up. But of course it isn’t; it’s Reed.

Both slightly droll and full of love for the original material.
