– Les Paul and Friends: A Tribute to a Legend

2008-10-13

This album featured a melting pot of great musicians paying tribute to Les Paul, and I liked the mixture of genres represented on this album. From Blues to Rock, this album doesn’t disappoint. My favorites tracks are 2-“The Walls Came Tumbling Down” (feat. Hiram Bullock) a bluesy piece with that patented Les Paul sound, (6)-69 Freedom Special, (7) Vocalise (feat. Slash), (8) I Love You more than You Know (feat. Mick Hucknall), and (9) How Long (feat. Jeff Golub) with just the collaborations alone on this album, you have a plethora of flavor for the listener. From lick to lick on the strings left me wishing I could play guitar like that and I actually enjoyed this album from top to bottom and would recommend it to anyone who loves guitar. –Corey Jones, WYCE Intern
