2009 Cold Blue Music (CD)
Iconoclast composer and instrument builder Chas Smith's music has always been a favorite at steveroach.com HQ. His classic NAKADAI has at last made its way from vinyl LP to CD. The textures found inside these rising and falling sheets of sound and harmonically compacted drones are simply chilling, evoking the vast interior of a forbidden desert region or maybe Nevada's Trinity test site in its current day.

|An Hour Out of Desert Center|
2003 Cold Blue Music CB0013 (CD)
This highly-recommended release suggests the stark and chilling beauty of the desert heat's mirage, high streaming clouds, and abandoned desert towns that pass along mid-day drives down nameless desert roads. This release is a current favorite of Steve's and is in constant rotation around the mail-order office. A beautiful, unique release by a true original. A perfect statement of pure harmonic textures and space all on steel guitar, along with instruments invented and built by Chas Smith.

2002 Cold Blue Music CB0007 (CD)
Bowed, struck and caressed into a hovering cloud of tone and texture, Smith's world of sound mercilessly lights up the imagination while creating a constant sense of suspending time. Created on his instruments made from various metals, strings, rods and aluminum sheets and plates, this is a fasinating place to visit and feel the effects of.
