Radio Free Albemuth was also the title of the first
solo album by (electric) bassist Stuart Hamm, released in 1988 or 89. Hamm's technique is very interesting, alternating between
the standard, finger-plucked style and a two-handed,
"hammering" technique, similar to that of Michael Hedges.
On the bass, the sound of the hammering is strongly
reminiscent of the piano, which comes across
very clearly in his renditions of Beethoven's Moonlight
Sonata and Claude Debussy's Doctor Gradus Ad Parnassum,
the latter of which is truly stunning. The album also features excellent guitar work by guests Allan Holdsworth and Joe Satriani, particularly on the title track, and again on the lovely (and Dick-inspired)
Flow My Tears, The Policeman Said.
