Kottke at the Clearwater Festival, 2007. Background information. By then, he had gained an international following largely due to his performances at folk festivals. In 1976, Kottke collaborated with arranger Jack Nitzsche on the release Leo Kottke, which featured Kottke backed by a small orchestral section on a number of tracks. In the later part of his career, he has begun reworking and re-recording tunes he wrote and recorded in the early 1970s. For example, 1999's One Guitar No Vocals offered a new instrumental version of 1974's "Morning Is the Long Way Home", with the countermelody opened up from behind the vocal line, stripped of its original trippy lyrics.
Chewing Pine has some great moments including his version of Procol Harum's Power Failure and Wheels, a classic Kottke interpretation. But, the addition of other instruments such as piano along with Leo experimentation with electric guitar almost feel like "filler". Of Leo's studio albums with other musicians, I'd recommend Ice Water. This is Kottke at his finest. Unlike many of his offerings, this album has some vocals on it and contrary to what Leo himself says ("My voice sounds like geese farts in the wind"), the vocals help to round this album out nicely. Of particular note is the fine slide work on 'Can't Quite Put it Into Words'.

Leo Kottke's seventh album is a dazzling amalgam of sounds and styles - there's a surprising emphasis on vocal numbers here, beginning with "Standing on the Outside" and "Power Failure" (a Procol Harum number, no less), that show him off singing with a full band in a light country-ish vein, followed by "Venezuela, There You Go," a loping instrumental that incorporates. It also says something about how the artist himself and his admirers feel; only a single track off of Chewing Pine, the shimmering, fingerpicking instrumental "The Scarlatti Rip-Off," earned a place on his Rhino anthology.
