Guitar Heroes  is a landmark one night only, no edits live “guitar extravaganza” cd that proves passion for music has no restrictions.

The guitar work on this cd by James Burton, David Wilcox, Albert Lee and Amos Garrett is off the chart natural and unforced.

Whether it’s an original song like Wilcox’s Bad Apple, the instrumental Coming Home Baby or the classic That’s All Right Mama it’s all done with a respect for what live music is supposed to be.

A celebration.

Amos Garrett and David Wilcox come up with unexpected bends and solos that defy category and make you grin from ear to ear.

James Burton and Albert Lee take more than a few chances, while still retaining the sound you fell in love with in the first place.

On the over 7 minute cover of Ray Charles’s Leave My Woman Alone everyone rips and trades licks.

And yes it’s never a mess.

For fun, the band ends with a quick 10 second nod to Eric Clapton’s Layla.

Again readers, this is a GUITAR featured album.

Absolute fave track has to be the gorgeous Only The Young.

You may remember the track from The Ventures and the Ricky Nelson vocal version from the mid 60’s.

Make no mistake…Great support band with Jon Greathouse, Will MacGregor and James Harrison Smith.

Crank this up at your next BBQ!!
