I must admit never having heard of guitarist Ray Flacke before stumbling across a cassette copy of Untitled Island in a discount bin some years ago.
But this British-born country guitarist (resident in Nashville since the late 1970s) has quite the resumé: He has been in Marty Stuart's touring band and played on albums by the likes of Emmylou Harris, Travis Tritt and Ricky Skaggs.
If you love guitar instrumentals, you'll want to search for a copy of Untitled Island, released in 1991 by RJM Records. A link to a sample track, lifted from the cassette, is below.
Devotion to the Dog
You have to be rich (or lucky) to be able to buy a copy of Untitled Island on CD. Even rarer is Songs Without Words, a 2004 acoustic album Flacke did for his own label. Neither album appears to be available as a download.
Flacke is featured on several guitar instructional websites, including guitarinstructor.com. There are also a couple of Flacke videos on You Tube. Here's one:
Flacke does not have a website and unfortunately does not appear to be active in music at the moment.
