  5. Complete Blue Horizon Sessions (1967-1969) by Fleetwood Mac ·
    This is definitely the "best" line-up of Fleetwood Mac.Peter Green is in top form for the studio albums as well as the live tracks recorded in Chicago.His phrasing and vibrato are absolutely superb-reminiscent of B.B.King at HIS finest.A must ha...(more)

  10. Do You Get The Blues? by Jimmy Vaughan ·
    Jimmie Vaughan is a master of understatement.His playing shows that he knows EXACTLY when to play and when to lay out.Jimmie's vocals are also minimalistic but get the point across.His duets with Lou Ann Barton are real nuggets and the instrumen...(more)

  11. DR PURE BLUES ·
    Great strings for vintage freaks and tone connosiours.I've tried most of the major brands and keep coming back to these.They may cost a few more bones but they're worth the added expense.

  12. Semantic Rhyming Dictionary ·
    A necessary evil,just try not to end up sounding like Dr. Seuss after visiting this site.Honestly,it's a pretty cool site,but some of the rhymes it gives you back are just nonsense...

  13. Used Musical Instrument Prices ·
    Mostly Pro Sound and processers,but it could be useful.I've not seen another site like this so it definitely fills a void.

  17. Allparts ·
    Great site.Pictures of most of the parts.Price list.These guys are a distributor for many other company's parts plus generic type stuff (screws,jacks,pickguards).I think you can buy direct from them but you'll pay full retail.Check with your loc...(more)

    Izzy's 4th solo album reunites him with Rick Richards of Georgia Satellites,Taz Bentley of Rev.Horton Heat and Ian MacLagan,who has played on both the Rolling Stones and Faces albums.This should give you a pretty good idea of what ol' Izzy is up...(more)
