I'm taking notes, here. The only artists I listen to that I have seen so far in this thread have been Jeff Beck and Helmet (though I don't know how anyone could call Helmet a guitar album... there aren't many (if any?) solos or leads).

Image<br><br>mid-70's fusion from Eric Johnson. This album was out of print for over 25 years and was bringing huge money whenever a copy popped up. Kudos to Rhino for reissuing it on cd.

Billy Cobham's Spectrum album features some of the most sick and intense playing by Mr. Tommy Bolin.<br>Anyone who doesn't own this record is a complete and utter fucking moron!!<br>Too bad the dumb mother fucker O.D.'d on 'H"!<br><br>[/quote]<br><br>i highly agree with you on this one. cobim's spectrum album is one of the sickist i've ever heard. another great album he did was the mahavishnu orchestra's lost trident sessions. fucking brilliant, and yes yer a little weird<br>

[quote author=Ronnys Noomies link=board=albums;num=1110631023;start=60#67 date=12/01/05 at 15:39:33]<br>Are those fusion albums, where he plays electric? If so, I'm going to find them! His acoustic stuff doesn't do a thing for me, but on Hymn of the 7th Galaxy, he was incredible.[/quote]<br><br>Yes, he plays electric on these three.<br><br>And I'm sorry I misspelled his name, it's Bill Connors.<br>The three electric fusion cd's ("Step It", "Double Up", & "Assembler") are available at AudiophileImports:<br>http://www.audiophileimports.com/cgi-bin/ai/cart.cgi/command=listitems&pos=0&type=search?search=bill+connors<br><br>I see that he has a new one called "Return", but I've just now learned of it.  The first three I wrote about are trio's (bass, drums, & guitar), and this new one has piano and percussion too.<br><br>BTW, in case you didn't know about it, AudiophileImports is all fusion with a lot of obscure hard to find stuff.<br><br>Oh and check out that "Fusion For Miles" at the top of that link, looks interesting, Vinnie on drums and Alphonso Johnson on bass.<br><br>I just listened to a lot of the sound samples of Connors' new release "Return".  It's way 'smoothe' compared to the three (more rock oriented) fusion albums (mentioned earlier) that he did with the trio in the 80's, so don't let it scare you away.  Tom Kennedy is a monster bassist.  I'd recommend "Step It" first, because it has Weckl.
