    I've seen leo a dozen times and almost attend these days because it doubles up as a fantastic comedy show Seriously! He's a funny guy. I actually think I found out about this South African guitarist (Guy Buttery) through an interview with Leo. Does that sound correct?

    I've just seen that Guy has released another record with another fantastic South African musician, Nibs van der Spuy. I ordered the CD (also through Bandcamp - which is fantastic BTW) which came with an instant digital download of the album as well. Sounding brilliant upon first listen.

    You aware of that you can select FLAC as download format on bandcamp, then there is no need for the physical CD , and this is a good record I agree

    Thanks for that, but I am afraid I'm of the old school and MUCH prefer hard copy albums. Reading liner notes, digesting the artwork and taking the album out and into the player is far more real and almost cathartic That's why I also bought Mr. Buttery's vinyl LP (which sounds unbelievable by the way). I did however take the FLAC files as well and have those backup for digital use.

    I see Mr. Buttery has released a new album this week. His Bandcamp site only allows to preview two tunes so far but they sound incredibly good as a hors d'oeuvre. It seems like another release worth checking out by this dude. http://guybuttery.bandcamp.com/

    I received my copy of Guy Buttery's new live album in the mail and am loving it. Beautiful quality recording (and that's not just for a live CD), fantastic renditions of older tunes along with some new ones and the artwork is stunning. I am now on his mailing list and see the album is also now on iTunes https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/li...lu/id663095271

    Seriously guys. You should take a listen to this!

    Another great fingerstyle acoustic player is Bill Dutcher. His album "Solo Guitar" is excellent, and "Finding Time" is simply fantastic.

    I just received a mail about this which I've copied below and thought I'd pass it on. Judging by the guest artists and the Soundcloud link, this LP promises to be a goody. Guy's last vinyl release was definitely one of my albums of the year back in 2012 and still one of the best sounding albums I have in my collection. I'll be ordering this one later this evening!

    Pre-order the hand numbered vinyl of 2 time SAMA award winning guitar player, Guy Buttery. This limited edition LP features Vusi Mahlasela, Dan Patlansky, Will Ackerman (founder of Windham Hill Records and multiple Grammy award winner), Derek Gripper, Piers Faccini, Shane Cooper, Qadasi and Nibs van der Spuy. The album delivers a unique angle on South African musical landscapes fusing numerous traditional genres alongside ambient and groove driven psychedelia.

    Buy it here - www.igg.me/at/guybuttery
