heinz1959 Yet another great album by the inimitable Bill Nelson. This time, a collaboration with Reeves Gabrels. R. G. sometimes played music with David Bowie. One of the greatest guitarists / musicians I had the pleasure to listen to. I really love his music. My pesonal recommendation.

Cosmic Voyager A brilliant collaboration between two unique guitar giants who have already left indelible footprints in the sands of rock music. If you don't know Nelson or Gabrels look them up.
Be Bop Deluxe & Tin Machine were iconic forward thinking 70's & 80's bands. Favorite track: Ambiguity.

Long time David Bowie collaborator and now lead guitarist of The Cure, Reeves Gabrels, has been a friend of Bill Nelson for over 20 years. During that time a collaboration has often been discussed but it was only recently that serious plans were made for the two guitarists to record together. The result is 'Fantastic Guitars,' an album of guitar instrumentals that marries their playing in a unique and exciting way. If you love electric guitars they don't get more astonishingly electric than this!
