Sketch For Summer Live

I mentioned how much I love the guitar playing of The Durutti Column’s Vini Reilly a couple days ago.  I posted one of their most well known studio compositions, Otis, along with that post.  Here is a great live version of one of their other signature pieces, Sketch For Summer.  Notice how much sound they create with two people.  Notice how the composition of what Reilly is playing is finally honed, like a jeweler crafting a diamond.  I love the liquid quality of Reilly’s guitar, almost as if he is painting with sound.  One of the true masters of the instrument, who should get much more recognition than he does.
