When is a sitar not a sitar? When it's Paul Metzger and his amazing banjo, that's when! The three tracks on Deliverance certainly don't sound like something from Deliverance. Instead, these three very long songs are woozy, intoxicating and simple in their approach. If you're looking for a record to relax you at the end of the day, or to provide quiet music for a nice, sedate gathering of you and your intellectual friends, then burn some Nag Champa, pour some Midori, turn down the lights, place Deliverance between your Modern Jazz Quartet and Ravi Shankar records in your CD changer, hit random play, and relax, man.
