Earl Klugh - Wishful Thinking mp3 album

Wishful Thinking (Earl Klugh album). The album represents a summation of Klugh as a guitarist and composer, and features a variety of musical styles, including pop, classical, jazz, blues, reggae and funk.

What makes the album compelling - despite its brief running time, clocking in a bit over 36 minutes - is that it is a summation, really, of all the places Klugh had been as a player and composer. A self-produced effort, it showcases his wonderfully rhythmic, deeply melodic gift on an acoustic nylon-stringed guitar.
