Sometimes you just have to shut up and play your guitar. For Phelps that time is now. The Washington picker's eighth CD is a back-to-basics affair, with 11 lulling solo instrumentals played on six string, 12-string and lap-steel guitar. Some are folksy; some are bluesy; none are showoffy; all are gorgeous, if somewhat overly atmospheric. Don't get rid of the mic just yet, dude.
