Notes and Editorial Reviews

Scott Johnson's experiments with rock go back to his 1986 ''John Somebody''... his technique has advanced considerably... [I]n the purely instrumental title piece, the interplay between Mr. Johnson's raucous guitar and the gracefully turned string lines is irresistibly eccentric.

-- Allan Kozinn, The New York Times [8/15/1996]
