Behold, the Keaggy of your dreams, totally unharnessed and displaying what must be nigh on the whole range of his guitar skills. Finally, it can be conceded that Hendrix might have really said and actually meant that reported comment that Keaggy's the world's No 1 guitarist. These are mainly alternative variations of some tracks from 'Crimson And Blue', but gloss-free and SATURATED in raw, blues-soaked screaming energy and sledgehammer power. Some of the guitar solos rival the classic flights of your favourite guitar heroes. The 12:46 jam "The Further Adventures Of" where Phil's joined by former Glass Harp colleague, drummer John Sferra is instrumental paradise. There's two alternative versions of "John The Revelator" offering different guitar solos, a swamp version of "Doin' Nothin"' plus a few other goodies and a couple of unannounced treats thrown in for good measure. Great set from one of our few truly world class performers.
