Tommy Bolin - Whips and Roses 2 (2006) Retail CD
Mad muso jams, funky rock riffery and some of the finest shredding of our time - ladies and gentleman, lets have a hand for the late (and great) Tommy Bolin. Whether sharpening his axe with DEEP PURPLE after Ritchie Blackmore's departure or just going it alone, alongside contemporaries such as Jimmy Hendrix and Bolin was not just a born guitar hero - he was a unique player, years ahead of his time.
This specially compiled album is sure to not only appeal to Tommy Bolin fans, but to win over a whole new respecting rock crowd in general. Opener `Teaser' is a blinding funk marathonmore… with more hooks than an automated octopus, `Wild Dogs' has modern single stamped all over it and `Cookoo' carries delicious, blues funk guitar melodies as opposed to lead vocals - Joe Satriani eat your heart out!
Much of the same follows with the bizarrely titled `Marching Powder', impressing with ludicrously tasty time changes and harmonies - nevermind Crunchy Nut cornflakes, this is what you call nuts, but in the very best of taste!
The sole ballad appearance comes via `Dreamer`, piano based with a memorable chorus - again, worthy of high praise. Time defying epics such as `Flying Fingers' (15.56) `Just Don't Fall Down' (10.43) & `Blowin' Your Cookies' (12.09) shows Tommy rocketing to heights still further, although these, while to be respected, are something you'd appreciate more in live format or at a concert.
A very enjoyable listen from a true legend, may his legacy continue to live on.
