The best guitarist you've never heard of - at his best!!!

This album is awesome! Roy at his best. No wonder the Stones gave him a tryout around this time. They obviously didn't pick him (Keith hated his guts) and he probably wouldn't have fit but that's only because he was such an amazing player, he would have made Keith look totally lame. I love this dude - nobody ever rocked a Tele like Roy.

"Sweet Dreams; Roy!"

.."Roy Buchanan Will Come Again!"..We hear you are "Playin' Da Bluz" somewhere "Further On Up The Road!"-With "American Axe (Live In 1974)"; I hope that "Good Ol' Roy" will garner some new Young Fans & Bring back some Older Ones to once again listen to just how incredible an "Awesome Axemaster" he really was!-{If all you know from "The Blues" are Eric Clapton; Jimmy Page & Stevie Ray Vaughn; Prepare to have Roy Buchanan's most Powerful Playing just "Blow Your Mind!"-He was one of the Best & Like Michael Bloomfield; "He Left Us Too Soon!"-"I Hear You Knockin'; Roy!"

His father was both a farmer and Pentecostal preacher, which would bring the youngster his first exposure to gospel music...
