The Rolling Stones – “Route 66”

Remember when the Stones played rythm and blues? This is from their first album (1964). I won’t insult anyone’s intelligence by naming the then two guitarists.


Muddy Waters – Hoochie Coochie Man (Live 1970)

Frank Gambale – Little Charmer (live – audio only)

Frank Gambale

Frank Gambale's Best of Jazz Rock FusionFrank Gambale said recently that some of his albums were “as rare as hens’ teeth” in some parts of the world. And it’s a pity that a large part of his potential audience apparently doesn’t know his work. How many of the thousands who tuned out for the recent Satriani tour know about Frank Gambale? 10-15 per cent, tops. You can get to know his work by buying one or two of his albums. Guitarpower recommends his Best of Jazz and Rock Fusion, on which Little Charmer is a star track. Buy it directly from the Gambale site  here or from Amazon here. You won’t be disappointed.
