VARIOUS Guitar Greats Volume One
Magna Carta (2007)

An eleven track compilation selected from previously released albums plus one previously unreleased track featuring Steve Stevens, Terry Bozzio and Tony Levin. Picks of the album are 'Fate Speaks' by the Explorer's Club, where Dream Theater's John Petrucci lets fly and a cover of Rush's 'Analog Kid' with Great White's Jack Russell on vocals and Michael Romeo doing his best Alex Lifeson impression.

However whoever roped in Seb Bach on vocals for another Rush cover 'Working Man' must have been under the influence at the time! Even Jake E Lee's guitar can't save this abomination. Worth getting as well to hear 'Western Sabbath stomp' by the Alex Skolnick Trio who really produce a veritable shredfest. The slow burning 'Things Ain't What They Used To Be' featuring Glenn Hughes is worth a listen as well, originally released on Niacin's 'Deep' album and Toto's Steve Lukather plays guitar on this one.

A good, solid compilation with three tracks coming of the Rush tribute album 'Working Man' and fans of the guitarists/vocalists featured on here should certainly give this a go.
