Gabor SZABO - Faces 1977

Gabor SZABO - Faces 1977


The iconoclastic guitarist's final American record suffers producer Wayne Henderson's dated disco tendencies. But by the time the needle finds side two, some genuinely beautiful performances emerge ("Alicia," "The Last Song" and "Estate"), proving Szabo had not lost his ability to sustain a potent, hypnotic interest. Not available on CD.
