Adam Ironside: reviews Alan Williamson's Across Angry Skies

A couple of people asked me what I think about various CDs and what kind of music I am listening to at the moment, so I thought I would start up a little mini-review thing, basically just recommending music that I like. I hope you enjoy!


PS - No infringement on copyright is intentional, I am simply genuinely trying to promote the artist here, who deserves greater recognition.

Alan Williamson - Across Angry Skies (Mini-Review)

My view:
Totally agree that is a great album... every time it comes on the mp3 player... you are reminded of the musical quality. Put this one on your buy list!

Adam Hughes Henry: I love the English cricket team so much I entered a solo for the shred this too competition!

Thanks Adam... you are a true star! Just off to have a cup of tea to get over the shock! A reciprocal arrangement... apparently I love the Aussie cricket team just as much as the Jazz Butcher loves our English boys! Some super not fusion licks, particularly in the trail out solo... enjoy!

Here's my take for ' Marco Sfogli's Shred This Too' contest. The Backing Track was really cool and fun to jam with.

In the name of shred, Thanks to Laurie Monk & his JR and the rest of the judges to make this possible. Being a part of this shredding community is really awesome!

And thanks to Marco Sfogli for his music and endless inspirations!
