  1. Bluesbreakers w/Eric Clapton by John Mayall ·
    I just love the cover version of the first track, "All Your Love" by Otis Rush (cool Clapton solo) and Eric's vocal debut of Robert Johnson's "Ramblin on My Mind". Ray Charles's hit "What'd I say" is also represented here, with a drum solo and ...(more)

  2. DOD FX53 Classic Tube ·
    This is a great sounding guitar pedal for everyone looking to recreate vintage and modern sounds comparable to the classic tube amps of the 60s. I use this pedal mainly for blues, but it could be used for grunge or metal/hard rock as well. I u...(more)

  6. White Pony by Deftones ·
    This is the first record I've heard of the Deftones, and based on this I'll be picking up the first 2 as soon as I'm able to. These guys are a really cool metal band that really grooves, kind of in the same way that Helmet used to. My favorite...(more)
