Guitar's Practicing Musicians Vol. 1 CD music contains a single disc with 13 songs.

Great CD with exclusive tracks unavailable elsewhere including a live version of Steely Dan Bodhisattva with a "?" listed as performing on keys and vocals who sounds a lot like Donald Fagen (wink wink nudge nudge)! Also solos from Allan Holdsworth on the Jeff Watson track. 

I used to have this on cassette a long, long time ago! What a rush! The Reckless Fable alone is worth the price (at the time I think that it was the only place you could listen to it; Steve Vai released the whole album on his label since). But you also have Steve Morse, Vinnie Moore, Billy Sheehan, Randy Coven, etc. etc!!! I'm glad I got my paws on this cd. Keeper for sure! If you're lucky enough to get a copy, don't hesitate! 

This is a good cd of hard rock instrumentals. This was put out in 1989 and The best tracks here are by 'buck dharma" of blue oyster cult. and one by 'Vinnie moore' , some tracks have that 1980's drum sound , some don't;. back then some songs would push the drums to the front and some do that as you would expect from a hard rock cd from that era. But others are just hard rock songs that are melodic in nature. I don't remember seeing this back then , but it's worth owning if you like hard rock from that era. Like I said some songs do not do the drums forward sound and you could place them in any decade from the 70's until now. others are just that type of song. A number of really good guitarists are on this one too. Leslie west and Vinnie moore are on here. Vinnie is currently the lead guitarist of UFO. A band which began in 1969! and is still making great songs. If you like instrumental hard rock from the 80's then this will be worth your effort in owning. I collect blue oyster cult music so I had to grab this one because it has bd on it. The sound is good too as this was digitally recorded back then. wait is it really that long ago?
