Jan Akkerman: Heartware

"Heartware" was originally released on a small Dutch label in 1987. It has become one of Jan Akkerman's most requested and certainly most sought-after albums.

On this Hux reissue, eight new tracks have been added. They vary in style from acoustic to jazz-fusion and are a perfect showcase for this unique, and highly influential guitarist.

Jan Akkerman has written a liner note and the 8 page booklet  includes background notes and photographs.


"My big problem was to create a little bit of the same context of the songs of each C.D. but since I’ve never done anything the same twice it was a real problem. Still is! And as I said the difference between C.D. 1 or 30 is what I like!"
