"Very inventive, sometimes demented, always surprising and never dull... an instrumental adventure. - Phil Dirt, reverbcentral.com
"...remarkable variety of guitar sounds - how many sounds and effects can one man stand?" - Geoff Jermy, 2Good4Words
"What Ed does here quite cleverly, is to take these '60s classics and embed the rock guitars we know so well into new arrangements. Try the lovely "San Francisco" for an example and the wilder and longer Hendrix track "Third Stone". ...excellent second album. (Four Stars.) - Davy Peckett, New Gandy Dancer
"Plus que de psychedelique... je qualierarais ce CD d'ode aux '60s... Un peu de tout (pop, country, variete), un peu R'n'R, un peu surf." - Bernard Boyat, Le Cri Du Coyote
Back in the sixties when it seemed everyone was listening to the hits of the day, I was also listening to the instrumental albums the session players were making. Now I am lucky enough to have session men of such calibre as Lawrie Minson, Pixie Jenkins, Peter Figures and Ezra and Demo from the Blues Cowboys. The combined experience runs from Australian bush-ballad pioneers to the latest international pop stars. So it’s no surprise that they all sound pretty hot on my psychedelic stuff, too.
It probably seemed like a radical departure at the time, but now this music sounds like the natural successor to the rock and surf instrumentals that preceded it. That’s how I was thinking when I was producing it, anyway.
You can find some bio on me at the CDBaby Artist page. No point duplicating it here, and there’s not much to add – just another year or so of playing bass with the Blues Cowboys, teaching guitar and bass at Hunter Valley School of Music and recording the new albums.
