Album Notes
Rex Stratton is a Guitarist from the Midwestern United States. He doesnt hate anyone, has no axe to grind, hasnt been in rehab since 1987. His Music is his drug. He puts down several of his styles in this his inaugural CD from the year 1998. Its helped him build a band, get heard and appreciated for his yeoman years. People have passed on since he wrote and recorded this, good friends, old enemies. He's very grateful to be alive after surviving an heart attack in 2002.
He has a Blog
He looks like Jerry Garcias ghost.
He now is the driving factor in the band "Hi Trim", a group of loosely associated psychos and derelicts from the four corners of the Universe.

This CD is a compilation of melodies constructed with a Roland Gr30 Guitar Synthesiser and recorded on a four track recorder and mastered on CD from the tape.

Some of the guitar work is straight through to the recorder with no effects added, all the takes were done straight through like a live session.

Rex wrote and played all the instruments on all songs.

Mike Hall recorded some of this work for Mutantblues Studios.

Keith Wright was executuve Producer for Mutantblues Music.

The Music is laid back and easy on the mind. the Rock melodies are for fun. They're intended to soothe and relax you and make you drift into places of peace. If you like Mannheim steamroller and Windhamhill artists
you'll like this.
And If ya want more clips and pics go to Myspace and in the music section type in Rex Stratton and get MORE!

Linda Ray

Incisive look at the composer
It's easy to imagine that the composer IS his music. Quite biographical. Very mellowing tones. I would like to hear more of his music.

Lynne V

My tastes in music are rather eclectic and undefined....This CD pleases those tastes superbly. I recommend it.

Lucille Westover

He must have such a beautiful soul!
