The first compilation album by American Blues/Hard Rock guitarist-virtuoso.
Iain Ashley Hersey proved to be not only a remarkable musician but also a gifted songwriter that honors the legacy of such giants as Ritchie Blackmore and Eric Clapton.
On this CD, the American guitarist presents remastered versions of his best songs.
The additional motive of this collection is that we get the chance to listen to some very important singers interpreting Hersey’s ideas. Among the musicians joining Iain in these songs, is an impressive cast of top-notch vocalists. In the 15 songs, included in the collection, we are treated with the undeniable vocal talents: Paul Shortino (ex-Quiet Riot), Doogie White (ex-Rainbow), Graham Bonnet (ex-Rainbow, MSG), Mike Stone, Doogie White (in an excellent rendition of “L.A. Connection”) and Carsten Schulz (Evidence One).
All the fans of Classic Rock and the blues-based sound should definitely listen to Iain Ashley Hersey. They won’t be disappointed!
CD also features previously unreleased track “Red Head Rampage”.
This release will without a doubt appeal to fans of Classic Rock, Hard Rock and Melodic Rock, but also for lovers of Blues influenced Classic Rock such as Black Country Communion, Philip Sayce, Richie Kotzen and Joe Bonamassa!!
