5.0 out of 5 stars This one is hot ! November 28, 2012
Format:Audio CD
I enjoy reviewing CD's and albums from the past and present and I try to review those mostly that fit the five star category. These are the artists that I have bought their music or plan to because they are great. What is the sense of reviewing something that is crap. If I don't listen to it because I don't like it, what's the point. I want to preach the gospel of greatness.

So in keeping with this standard here is what I think of Craig Erickson's 1995 release, "Two Sides of the Blues". He is another professional that has been around for a while delivering excellent vocals and musicianship. If you enjoy Trower, Hendrix and Marino then his style will appeal to your tastes.

I read from Craig's Bio off his site...

"The son of a great jazz guitarist father, Craig Erickson started out at age 12 playing covers of Hendrix, Mountain, Jeff Beck, Cream, etc. A trip to New York at 13 led to seeing John Mclaughlin and Mahavishnu Orchestra playing high energy fusion at Central Park. This inspired Craig to branch out and listen to more jazz, fusion, classical, funk, etc. and he also started playing drums, keyboards, and bass... in addition to guitar. This enabled him to understand composition, arrangement and musical interaction more intensely. Free-form jamming in the basement and various nightclubs with the best musicians in town furthered his musical chops."

Influences and comparisons include Hendrix, Jeff Beck, Trower, Shawn Lane, Eric Johnson, Eric Gales, Walter Trout, Kings X, Chris Whitley, SRV, Govt Mule, Jimmy Herring, Larry Carlton, Steve Lukather, Mike Stern, Glenn Hughes, Free, Monte Montgomery and many many more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Blues Player!!! March 24, 2008
By Dale
Format:Audio CD
Anyone who likes guitar oriented Blues, or plays guitar will love this CD. Craig has great tone, and isn't really too much "in your face", just ripping enough. Like the other reviewer, I don't think there is a bad song on this whole CD. Well done from a Studio stand point also.
