There are many styles of rock guitar, and this is not most of them. This is instrumental acid rock electric and acoustic guitar with bass and drums playing rock funk psychedelic music. This set was partly inspired by the performances of Jeff Beck and Jimi Hendrix during the years 1965 to 1969. These pieces are in the spirit of their melodic style of extended guitar solos over a bass and drums rock foundation. This music evolves in a continuous variation, seeking a balance between composition and improvisation. It's called acid rock because that seems less misleading than other categories, but it's still misleading. Atavistic Times was mastered by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley, California.
