Ahead of Albert Lee’s extensive Australian tour and appearances at the Gympie Muster, Melbourne Guitar Show and both the Adelaide and Sydney Guitar Festivals, comes a new live album from the man Eric Clapton has called ‘the greatest guitarist in the world. The ultimate virtuoso.’
Albert Lee is “the guitar player’s guitar player,” universally recognized in music circles as one of the worlds finest, as well as one of the top country & rockabilly guitarists in history. His song ‘Country Boy’ helped to redefine country guitar for a whole generation of pickers. Humble and self-effacing, he’s played behind Muddy Waters, BB King, Jerry Lee Lewis, the Everly Brothers, Emmylou Harris, Joe Cocker, and Eric Clapton. This is a glittering run-through a set of fan faves and country and rhythm’n’blues classics that is a close approximation of what Albert will be giving Australian audiences in August. Kicking off with Fats Domino’s statement of intent ‘I’m Ready’, the set features key tracks in Albert’s repertoire, including the Gram Parsons/Emmylou Harris fave ‘Luxury Liner’, Rodney Crowell’s poignant ‘Til I Gain Control Again’, the Everly Brothers’ version of Ray Charles’ ‘Leave My Woman Alone’, and of course, ‘Country Boy’.
