Album Review

As evidenced by the multitude of collections the Tommy Bolin Archives label has been issuing on a regular basis since the mid-'90s, Bolin left behind quite a few demos and unreleased recordings. And to the delight of Bolin fans everywhere, there appears to be no end in sight to these releases, as collections continue to roll off the assembly line, such as 2002's double-disc Naked. While cataloging all of Bolin's reel-to-reel tapes during the early 21st century, the Archives unearthed a significant amount of demos of previously unheard songs, in addition to demos of what would become subsequent Bolin classics.

In a recording career that lasted only several years, Bolin not only touched upon several styles (blues-rock, ballads, fusion, funk, reggae, and heavy metal), but showed that he could master each one — as evidenced by his two solo albums and...
