Though he's far from a household name, Albert Lee has quietly earned a reputation among musicians and discerning aficionados as a guitar hero of the first order. His twangy, country-influenced licks and dazzling dexterity place him in the Mark Knopfler/Eric Clapton/Richard Thompson camp of guitarists, and, as HEARTBREAK HILL makes abundantly clear, Lee is every inch their equal. He first became known for his work with British country-rockers Head, Hands & Feet, and subsequently worked with everyone from Emmylou Harris to the Everly Brothers. Over the years, Lee's sporadic solo records have delighted those with a penchant for lightning licks that never seem flashy or overdone. HEARTBREAK HILL is something of a tribute to Lee's former employer Harris, as the songs are mostly associated with her own versions. Nevertheless, Lee--an effective singer in addition to his guitar wizardry--makes the tunes his own, from the poignant Rodney Crowell ballad "'Til I Gain Control Again" to the rocking riff-fest "Born to Run" (not the Springsteen song).
Uncut (1/04, p.112) - 3 stars out of 5 - "He's accompanied by Nashville's finest, yet the focus always remains the brilliant guitar work..."
Dirty Linen (2/04, pp.71-2) - "Lee's fretwork is exemplary here, particularly his breathtaking acoustic and electric solos..."
