Great album, but I wouldn't call obscure.
How about "Asmodeus" Book Of Angels Vol. 7 - {Marc Ribot plays John Zorn's Masada Book Two} featuring Trevor Dunn(electric bass), and G. Calvin Weston(drums). One of the best guitar power trio albums of the last 20 yrs.

Obscure ? Maybe.

I posted this one 10 years ago, and I'll post it again:

Note: These are both acoustic guitar albums.

Hi,

Guru Guru - 1st 5 albums, including the live one and Dance of the Flames. The first 3 are pure psychedelia, and I do not find many folks that can sit and enjoy them. That's how far out there they are ... let's say Jimi on acid and totally out of it ... that's Axe Genrich for you! And his solo albums are even crazier!

Egberto Gismonti - His earlier stuff, like Solo, Magico, Sol do Meio Dia ... where his free form guitar is insane.

Terje Rypdal - The original Odyssey album, and then the EOS album with David Darling, is almost like "chamber music" for electric guitar, something that none of us are ear-trained for at all!

Amon Duul 2 - Yeti/Dance of the Lemmings/Wolf City/Vive La Trance ... incredible guitar playing and use in music. It is very different and its material is totally out of its whack and very psychedelic, in an European way. Very with it as well because you and I are not going to argue about Mona Lisa having a bird brain!

Carmen - Fandangos in Space/Dancing on a Cold Wind/The Gypsies ... influence by the Spanish material, and a flamenco guitar, this guy plays Spanish licks on an electric guitar and rips it ... very tough to listen to, unless you are familiar with Spanish music, as it breaks hard and fast, and furious, and the feet and the castanets are much faster than the bass or drums. The albums also featured a bass player that went on to play with Jethro Tull until his passing a few years later.

Can - Ege Bamyasi/Future Days/Soon Over Babbalooma ... superb guitar work, and sadly the recording of much of it in the long cuts in FD and SOB, the guitar is way too much in teh background, and it is one of the prettiest things ever done. A touch, that is not always seen or heard very often.

Groundhogs/Toni McPhee - Crosscut Saw/Black Diamond ... opus of this world power guitar with lots of effects beautifully done. From Crosscut Saw, to the long cuts to Live Right ... these two albums belong in any guitar collection for sheer beauty and music design.

Nektar/Roye Albrighton - sounds Like This/A Tab in the Ocean/Remember the Future/Recycled ... for an incredible guitar expose, for someone that also sang lead at the same time. They are still around, but Roye has lost his voice! And it does not sound good now. But those albums are worth having for the guitar spunk!

Ash Ra Tempel - And the Cosmic Couriers, were extremely free form, and not something that most folks can enjoy because they are not song oriented, and this part of the German music scene at the time was about anything, but a western music format, specially, the song concept, and many of the works that Manuel has done, is all live and free form material. It shows on many of these albums, and Manuel's own solo works. For a sure show of guts, try his solo stuff with Klaus Schulze on the CD "In Blue".

Originally released in 1976. Not sure if it's really obscure, but it's worth mentioning anyway.

What's obscure is that this trio recorded 3 more albums:

1978: Gateway 2 (ECM)
1995: Homecoming (ECM)
1996: In the Moment (ECM)

I own all of them and they're all good. But if you're interested, start with the first one.

Alphonse Mouzon - Mind Transplant

I put this right up there with with Billy Cobham Spectrum as one of the greatest fusion records ever. Yes it's a drummers record but it features BLISTERING guitar work from Tommy Bolin, Lee Ritenour and Jay Graydon. Bolin's stuff is especially amazing!!!



This is high praise, considering the greatness of Spectrum. I just added it to my itunes wishlist and will check later.

Praxis - Transmutation. This album was my introduction to Buckethead.

same goes for sir richard bishop.

Been enjoying these the past few days. Frith has cited FZ as an influence, and you can hear it in his some of his compositions.
Reminds me of Uncle Meat/Weasels/BWS era stuff.

Shin Jung-hyeon

He's famous with the US forces for this album (look an SG !), but he has some other albums that are sensational.
