CD of the Week
Legends of Guitar, Rock The Sixties Vol. 1 by Various Artists:
I’m a big fan of the classic rock label Rhino Records. And being a huge guitar fan too, and playing the guitar just a little, I also am a fan of their Legends of Guitar series. This album is just one of the titles in their Guitar Player Legends of Guitar series. The series features music by great guitarists that cover all genres of music from rock to blues to country to jazz to classical. Some of the guitarist are well known and others less so – however, if you like guitar music this is definitely a series to check out!
