CD reissue. Jerry Donahue is an American guitarist and producer 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, the son of big band saxophonist Sam Donahue and actress Patricia Donahue and grew up in Los Angeles. 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, but to name a few! In 1986, Jerry Donahue released Telecasting on a limited budget and in limited quantities. This record has out of print for years when Donahue, enjoying a renaissance of sorts due to his association with the Hellecasters, decided to revisit his old solo album. The result, Telecasting Recast, but here for all to hear, is the original version, where you can hear the percussion, bass, and acoustic guitar. 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 virtuostic passages in which his guitar sounds like it is coming apart at the seams. Donahue's playing is so mesmerizing.
