Armed with a 12 strings acoustic guitar, an intoxicated banjo and a cheeky Weissenborn, amongst other soaked instruments, Israel's Yair Yona adapts his British Folk influences and his love for the groundbreaking guitar works of John Fahey, to a captivating trip down memory lane of the 1920s & 1930s Mississippi and Delta blues, country, rag-time and contemporary acid-folk.

Through his happy/sad compositions, a clever Salute to the late Fahey and a somber wink to Godspeed You! Black Emperor with "Skinny Fists", the closing track on "Remember", Yona adds a brilliant album to the exclusive pantheon of innovative acid folk and modern blues albums.

Recommended if you like Glenn Jones, Doug Martsch (Built to Spill), Bert Jansch, Mississippi Fred McDowell, Jack Rose, Leadbelly & Steffen Basho Junghans.
