Info for Moonstruck



The amazingly versatile guitarist that has lent his talents to so many Stockfisch releases recorded his album "Moonstruck” in the winter of 1999-2000.

Moonstruck contains moving ballads such as Long Long Journey, Angel from Montgomery and Maria's Lullaby.

"I think this album is probably unique, in that it captures my music over a span of 17 years. Although my vocals have improved over the years, not that much has changed since 1983, other than me getting old and fat. The songs are still personal (maybe even more so, I've lived and learned a lot in those 17 years) and the music means just as much to me now as it did back then. If you like honest acoustic music, you'll like Moonstruck." (Chris Jones)

"Apart from the strong roster of songs, the power and clarity of the recording are truly exceptional. Soulful, bluesy, bluegrass with a touch of gospel and super-potent bass (though not on every track) is perhaps the best way to describe it. It's an album of good strong songs with lots of feeling, maybe a sort of pumped-up James Taylor with flavours of Mark Cohn and Gordon Lightfoot. The opener, I Could Be Singing This Song Long After You're Gone, is an absolute killer.

If nothing else, it's an exceptionally powerful recording with which to give your hi-fi system an exhilarating workout and impress your guests ~ that bass is really addictive right from the word go. If played at high level, it'll swiftly warm up the heat sinks adjacent to the output transistors on your power amplifier/s and tell you what items in your listening room are susceptible to rattling." (Julian Stevens)

"Among fans of high-quality guitar music, Chris Jones rightly enjoys cult status. His unusual career began at the age of 14, when he was awarded the „Young Composer of the Year" prize at the renowned Peabody Conservatory in Maryland, USA. By the early 1980s he had already made a name for himself with his unique guitar style, which ranged from sensitive ballad renditions to driving rockers, his soulful vocals and impressive songwriting talents. As well as countless recordings as a studio musician, Jones released three solo albums. Despite his death at the early age of 46, Chris Jones left a legacy which will be remembered long after he‘s gone." (Steve Baker)
