DANIEL DONATO'S COSMIC COUNTRY - Reflector (2LP) light blue


Reflector's 15 songs offer 66 minutes of ecstatic musical immersion. It's an album in the classic sense of the word, tracks that are individually memorable but sound even better coming one after the other and make the sum greater than the total of its parts. ''We're touching on a lot with this record, which is also why there's so many songs on it,'' acknowledges Donato, whose stinging Fender Telecaster tone is the strongest glue of continuity throughout - and is positively screaming on tracks such as ''Gotta Get Southbound'' and ''Dance in the Desert Pt. 2.'' ''If you're the kind of person who wants to listen to a record and have a record be a companion with you, then Reflector is going to vibrate in your frequency.''
