Some of the greatest moments ever from guitarist Eric Gale – brought together in one extremely well-chosen batch of tracks! Gale's a legendary figure, even just for his session work alone – which includes performances on hundreds of albums for other artists – but here, the music comes from Gale himself as a leader, pulled from both his own albums on Columbia Records in the 70s and early 80s, and some of his work in the funky combo Stuff! Gale's got a tight tone on guitar – one that's never too
self-indulgent, but certainly finds the right sort of soulful flow, no matter what the setting – and unlike some of his contemporaries, who might try to go for some rockish solos, or maybe get a bit too
cheesy, Eric's always pure
class, all the way through. Other players include Bob James and Richard Tee on keyboards, Hubert Laws on flute, Ralph MacDonald on percussion, and Idris Muhammad on drums – and titles include "Morning Glory", "Forecast", "Dindi", "Thumper", "De Rabbit", "East End West End", "Red Ground", "Ginseng Woman", "Au Privave", "Touch Of Silk", "Oh Mary Don't You Weep", "Gypsy Jello", "Let Me Slip It To You", "Tell It Like It Is", "Killing Me Softly With His Song", "Foots", "My Sweetness","Sara Smile", "Blue Horizon", and "I Know That's Right".
