    Anyone remember that double vinyl that GP put out? There was some great stuff on there.

    The one that had Barney Kessell and some other guy doing a duet of "Tea for Two"?

    That album was KILLER!!!!!!!!!!

    Yes, i do remember it and just pulled it out. BTW, that was Barney Kessel and Herb Ellis doing ' Tea for Two' , good memory. Also on it were BB King, Lee Ritenour, Joe Pass, Larry Coryell, Laurindo Almeida, Irving Ashby, and John Collins.
    I'll have to give it a spin later.
    Thanks for the reminder,
    J

    I had that! I loved it - especialy the Kessel/Ellis cut. I still play that every now and again (only from memory, sadly). The Pass solo cut was gorgeous. The Lee Rittenour cut (the one with the phaser) was 70s funky. I'd LOVE to find that on disc!

    I think I may still have that one, I just need to check what's left of my collection. If I do have it I'd be happy to transfer it from vinyl to uncompressed wav's of aiff's....

    I still have mine, although its a little rough. "Valdez In The Country" by Lee Ritenour and the Joe Pass stuff were my favorites. The liner notes had the type of guitar and strings used in the recordings.

    Those were great. Doesn't seem that long ago -- CDs, cell phones, laptops, sure was great when we had less things to have to spend money on.

    Without trying to look up when the flick Crossroads [Ry Cooder, Steve Vai] came out, once upon a time [whenever that was], had the issue with their duel at the end, courtesy the floppy vinyl in GP. Thought that was great.

    Thanks, bluejack. '88, you say?
    IIRC, problem was that the duel was not on the movie soundtrack.
    Once Napster came into being, got the duel off of it.
