Reissue of American guitarist and producer Jerry Donahue's 1986 album 'Telecasting'. Donahue is primarily known for his work in the British folk rock scene as a member of Fotheringay and Fairport Convention as well as being a member of the rock guitar trio The Hellecasters.

Donahue was born in New York but after moving to England, Donahue soon became a respected member of the developing British folk rock scene. As a band member, he played with Poet and the One Man Band, Fotheringay and Fairport Convention. Later he recorded and/or toured with artists such as Joan Armatrading, Gerry Rafferty, Robert Plant, Elton John, The Proclaimers, Mick Greenwood, Johnny Hallyday, Gary Wright, Cliff Richard, Chris Rea, Warren Zevon, Bonnie Raitt, Hank Marvin, Roy Orbison, Nanci Griffith, The Beach Boys and The Yardbirds!

In 1986, Jerry Donahue released 'Telecasting' on a limited budget and in limited quantities. This reissue will be particularly interesting to Hellecasters fans, as this record contains the original recordings of two songs familiar to them: the haunting "King Arthur's Dream" and the Donahue/Jerry Reed composition "The Beak/The Claw." As a player, he is simply incredible (one does not get to be Richard Thompson's replacement in Fairport Convention without a great deal of musical vision). He is known for his amazing string-bending skills, and he shows off his remarkable facility to play both very vocal melodies and very virtuosic passages, in which his guitar sounds like it is coming apart at the seams. Donahue's playing is mesmerizing throughout.
