Allan Holdsworth - Live at Reigen, Vienna, Austria, May 11th, 2000 [2CD][FLAC]

I thought it was time for me to share some Holdsworth. I'm not the big fan of him that I was in the 80's but his originality in both playing and composing remains really impressive- IMO. I don't think this one circulates heavily. It's a nice recording of a great show. Husband or Wackerman (ormaybe the "other" Gary), you ask (or not)? I like them both (saw the IOU stuff with both in the early 80's). I think both their styles suit AH's music but I prefer Husband with him plus I remember thinking I saw Gary's bass drum catching air off the stage because he was so frenetic & powerful. Anyway, he is killing here! Enjoy !!!

Hi Doc, this recording originaly came from a friend of mine and he did a very good work. I also catched that tour and have some anecdotes on it. For an example, I have got one of Gary's drum sticks.

Hi Doc, I really don't know if my friend would like to appear here with his real name. And about my anecdotes on the gig on Valencia, Spain on May 23, 2000 all was written in a message I sent to the Fusenet forum. My friend Jose and me made nearly 11 hours by train to attend that gig, which was the last one of that European tour. There were not good times for Allan himself, but I spent with him nearly one entire hore before the gig. Best regards
