  1. Jim Hall & Pat Metheny by Jim Hall & Pat Metheny ·
    Great songs, and great improv. You can hear them playing off each other, they just fed off each others styles and that is a treat for any guitarist especially jazz, so i really liked the cd.

  2. In Session by Albert King & Stevie Ray Vaughan ·
    Great guitar playing. It is great to hear Stevie's blazing blues runs along with Albert's tasteful, piercing bends all in the same tune. They even shared some chats on the CD, even some during the middle of the song. I strongly recommend this CD...(more)

  7. Blow By Blow by Jeff Beck ·
    A lot of people and magazines cite 'Freeway Jam' as the best song on this cd, well i don't know what they are talking a bout because i like 'Cause We've Ended As Lovers' a lot more, and his rendition of 'She's a Woman' is great too.

  8. In Step by Stevie Ray Vaughan ·
    Stevie was amazing. Life Without You (live version) damn near brought me to tears when he stopped and started talking to the crowd.

  13. Alien Love Child: Live And Beyond by Eric Johnson ·
    I believe his playing here is amazing, he isn't as much of a perfectionist as he used to be and sounds more real in the result, this live record shows Eric showing his Wes Montgomery and George Benson influence as well as his Hendrix and SRV blu...(more)
