Dirty Pool by Melvin Taylor and the Slack Band

Taylor, an admittedly little known blues guitar player, really treats the listener to some of the finest blues around on his release Dirty Pool. Many of the tunes are inspired by Stevie Ray Vaughn, but thankfully Taylor is able to inject life and power into many blues standards. This album is most notable for Taylor's exquisite guitar playing, striking original ground somewhere between the phrasing of Stevie Ray Vaughn, the unique Wah-Wah tone and style of Frank Zappa, and the a**-kicking of Jimi Hendrix. Any fan of Blues guitar will be sure to love this gem of an album.
