ROYE ALBRIGHTON ‘The Follies of Rupert Treacle’ (Voiceprint 2002)

Roye Albrighton is the guitarist and vocalist of UK band Roye Albrighton. This album was recorded at the artist’s home studio during 1998 and Roye play’s all the instruments. The album is based on the concept of an imaginary childhood friend who helps the child into adulthood. Opening track ‘Sandman’ is a mellow keyboard drenched tune, overlaid with some subtle guitar soloing. Instrumental ‘The Follies’ has spacey soloing guitar, not unlike modern day Camel. ‘Pass the Fuzz’ another instrumental track, builds from a keyboards intro into a jazz rock guitar frenzy by the song’s end! ‘Rupert’s Lament’ is a laid back piece, similar in vein to early Toto. Roye’s guitar playing is gloriously highlighted on the closing track ‘The Stranger’ – a strong end to the album.

Roye Albrighton fans will obviously enjoy this, as well as anyone who enjoys more progressive music, particularly fans of later day Camel. The instrumentation is first class - amazing for a one-man show!
