5.0 out of 5 stars Not a disappointment, February 6, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
In 1995, I obtained a Discovery Sampler CD called Country. One of the artists is Shaver and I Love You 'Til The Cows Come Home is one of two cuts that were included. That song has been one of my favorites for 15 years. I didn't really investigate who it was until today. I discovered it was Eddy Shaver playing and that he died early in life (38# on December 31, 2000, as it seems so many really great guitarists/artists seem to do. I've been playing guitar on and off since I was around 12 years old #1958). I've heard just a handful of truly inspiring guitartists. I know there are hundreds of gifted pickers, but in my mind just a few that inspire me. Eddy was one of those. I can't believe the range of leads this guy could assemble on command. He moved from blues to country to rock and back with so little effort. Shows you how close all of those genres of music really are, doesn't it? Today, I downloaded Unshaven: Shaver Live At Smith's Old Bar and shed a tear for just how outstanding a player this guy was. Who know what greatness might have come when he was to record his debut solo album a few months later. It seems that the really gifted have to experience so much sadness and pain in life. I can only say that I'm glad I took the time to discover more info about Eddy and plan to search for more of his music.
