Guitar prodigy Dave Sharman shows remarkable maturity with his debut album, like a dream come true Dave’s talent was spotted on the Friday Rock Show by producer Tony Wilson and the result is this. ‘1990’ a studious instrumental collection, I can’t knock the guy cos he not only plays guitars on this but keyboards and bass too. The most interesting tracks are ‘Southern Comfort’ and ‘Cloud 9 (Sure Feels Fine)’ for their adventurous spirit, ‘Southern Comfort’ finds Dave in fine whiskeyed form, sliding and twanging up and down the fretboard in true solo. ‘Cloud 9’…. on a different theme is a funky horn-tinged slapabout rounding out his perfect repertoire.
