Balance is an album by American guitarist Leo Kottke, released in 1978. It was re-issued on CD by BGO Records (263) in 1996. On this album, only Whine and Dolores are Kottke's familiar acoustic guitar solos. 1/2-Acre of Garlic is a unique blend of acoustic guitar wizardry and Kottke's vocal, with electric guitar and bass supporting. Learning the Game is a straight ballad rendition of the Buddy Holly classic. The remaining tracks are essentially rock songs. Even Embryonic Journey is given more of a rock band style of treatment than in Jefferson Airplane's original version.
