A recording that will stand the test of time and serve as a reminder of just what a genius Schenker is with a Gibson Flying V. A lot of my friends listened to this CD for the first time and simply said; “Holy smokes! Where did he come from?” I then tell them he recorded this 25 years ago and was way younger than most of them. They were all utterly speechless and now are fans.
What a great solo effort and Schenker came out of the gates with guns ablazing. Incredible material, song writing, production and performance by all band members. Simon Phillips is a very talented drummer and lays down some serious tracks.
Highlight of this CD is the solo at the end of “Lost Horizons”, that is mind boggling guitar work that is beyond replication.
This is a staple for anyone who follows extreme guitar talent and has an appreciation for master guitar work that will live on as long as music is played.
