    This is a collection of Henry Kaiser's solo guitar improvisations from 1973 (a year after he began playing the guitar) to 1991. Some of the tracks are culled from the out-of-print albums IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE and DEVIL IN THE DRAIN. Others were recorded specifically for this collection, were previously un-issued, or are from works which are either still available or have been reconfigured in some manner.
    A sense of playfulness pervades much of the work. "Red Shadows" features a midi-guitar triggering piano sounds that approach a Conlon Nancarrow-like flurry. In "Novelty Act," Kaiser's guitar simulates the varied sections of an orchestra (evoking an oblique game of call-and-response). "Meet the Flintstones" is not the television theme song, but rather an autobiographical tale that Kaiser weaves while accompanying himself on guitar. As always, the pieces are cleanly recorded, and this album serves as a fine introduction to Kaiser's improvisational work.
