During the 1970s, Bob Hadley composed and recorded three albums of guitar solos. These albums, on Kicking Mule Records, have drawn critical praise, and Guitar Player Magazine has called Hadley "A fingerpicking talent on a par with anyone recording today". Melody Maker, the leading music publication in Britian, described Hadley as "The greatest discovery of the Kicking Mule Tour" -- a reference to a European tour by Kicking Mule artists. Bob's three albums, in chronological order, are: ``Raven'', ``Tunes from the Well'', and ``On the Trail of the Questing Beast''
Selections from Reviews
"Bob Hadley is a genius of melody. He weaves beautiful textures with his steel string guitar. The second solo Kicking Mule album extends the ideas and haunting sounds we first heard on his debut album - Raven ... He combines fingerpicking with bottleneck techniques and produces some fantastic guitar sounds. A must for the listener and player of fine guitar music."
-- GUITAR Magazine (London, England)
"Hadley has put together a thoroughly satisfying, brilliantly executed collection of original compositions ... Everything on the album is first-class, sophisticated, and compelling. I think it is a better album than Fahey's early productions and I'd go as far as to say that it equals Kottke's finest work."
