I'm now listening too a female guitarist called Orianthis, ahe was going to be the guitarist for Michael Jackson last tour. I kind see why he would have choose her. Really good at the guitar and not a bad voice, she sounds alot like Kelly Clarckson.

Just got done listening to Rodney on the ROQ Vol. III on LP thanks to a recommendation by a forum member here. Vol I LP was purchased and on its way. Vol II, is being sought for a reasonable price. I actually wonder if that thread prompted a bidding war on the 3 records because I began following them within hours of them being posted. Shortly after the posts and exchange about the LPs, with zero activity previously, including page views, both views and the prices began to rise.

I really liked Vol. III. It had a great representation of music from the era that was certainly played too infrequently, if at all, in lotsa places. I could have probably done without a few of the 'squealy girly' tracks, but they were representative of what people (some, anyway) liked back at the time so too bad for me. That's fine. I still like the perspective.

This record I largely punk with some of the earlier beginnings of the morphing into New Wave and the more electronic based stuff. I came into punk rock late- the music, not the scene - and a lot of punk and some New Wave was/is in my collection. I worked with a former college DJ who was heavy into New Wave and he turned me onto a lot. A counterman at a liquor store I frequented was a punk and we quickly figured out we had music as common ground and he turned me onto a lot of punk. Once I got a taste and I liked what I heard I bought a lot of music often knowing zero about who they were. Hearing a lot of music I was familiar with on a period compilation record gave me one of those "I was cooler than I thought!" moments! Punk, and likely over half my music collection are artists and sounds who 99.99% of the crowd I ran would have began the "Play something we know!" chorus that's followed me most of my life. Since high school, anyway. (Think trying to play Court of the Crimson King to an audience who thinks Grand Funk are the best band ever.)

One of the joys of owning a collection that has been assembled over decades, it inevitably contains a lot of one-offs and obscure titles by bands never to be heard from again. In the sheer quantity of material and as new supersedes old and old gets older, things get lost and forgotten. But, when something really good is rediscovered it's a special thing that only serious lovers of music (whatever flavor) can really understand. And those on their way may not get the words, but I know they get the feeling. Whatever triggers a rediscovery in a blessing (in a secular sense) and this LP did that for me. I had forgotten just how great some of that music was. And I'm enjoying it now!

Shut Up 'N Play Yer Guitar - vintage vinyl 3 record set

Zappa's 3 CD set Shut up n' Play Yer Guitar (and the variations on the title). No singing, great guitar work in a lot of styles using a variety of instruments/pickup/amp/effects all of which are detailed. I posted the LP because it clearly stated it's the 3 set. There's a 3 CD set as well but the titles in the set were also sold individually.

The Guitars the Destroyed the World
Kings of the Blues Guitar
Blues Guitar Heaven

Really, 'guitar compilation CD' in a search engine yields tons of results. The above are just a few I have. For difference in styles going back, Wishbone Ash had a unique (at the time) guitar sound. The Ocean Blue / Cerulean has a very ultra-bright clear sound. Anything by Jeff Beck, especially with other noted guitarists. Adrian Belew and my favorite release of his Twang Bar King. Clutch is down low and muddy, sludge I believe. Rock-A-Billy: Phantom, Rocker, and Slick/Men Without Shame and a LOUD music system. Jazzy- Al Di Meola and John McLaughlin. McLaughlin was excellent with Mahavishnu Orchestra but his solo work is amazing. He was finger playing the neck and burning up the frets like nobody else before Eddie van Halen knew what a guitar was.

There are just so many "good" guitar albums...

Could be good if the right people were in it. 2-3 original players are getting old and likely tired of paying England their high income taxes.
