Guitarist Richard Leo Johnson once proclaimed, "A guitar is something to be screwed with. The Arkansas native's 1998 debut, the solo-guitar Fingertip Ship, upheld that ethos perfectly, capturing this homegrown talent - no lessons, no nuthin' - as he coaxed pristine textures from his 12-string with an assortment of oddball tunings and a truly formidable technique. Even John McLaughlin and Shakti are evoked in Johnson's welcome tendency to capture sub-Asian grooves with his rhythmic sensibility.

Richard Leo Johnson's The Legend of Vernon McAlister may have upped the ante. Johnson was already a critically acclaimed fret-burner, bringing two-handed tapping techniques to his double-necked acoustic. Here, he opts for a gentler, but possibly more avant-garde sound, trading his acoustic for a National Steel guitar. Like a Dobro on steroids, the National Steel is a metal guitar whose overtones and strange resonances make it capable of the most unearthly sounds. Richard Leo Johnson has created an album of hidden and subtle charms. A truly beautiful guitar record.

Richard Leo Johnson diventa Charlie Shoe, un ragazzo quasi autistico che si lascia trasfigurare dalla musica in occasione del passaggio in paese di uno sconosciuto che offre la sua arte chitarristica in cambio di un pasto. Gregg Bendian è invece Junk Fish, un altro personaggio immaginario che lascia la scena rock di Memphis per andare ad aiutare lo zio nel suo lavoro di trovarobe. I 21 bozzetti che compongono questo album rappresentano un delizioso pastiche musicale che accarezza il blues e il folk per debordare in situazioni assolutamente creative che non possono non fare venire in mente la genialità spesso scombiccherata di Eugene Chadbourne. Rispetto alle lunatiche follie di Chadbourne questo Who Knew Charlie Shoe? è più raccolto ed omogeneo ma ci troviamo di fronte a mondi poetici che certamente collidono con un sorriso reciproco.
