Notes and Comments:
  • The (sound) quality is very good.. The playing! What great concerts! Subtle, jazzy sometimes, excellent! Pure fun to listen to.
  • That was taped in Italy. He leaves the fretboard smokin' on that one!!
  • Man, I've gotta agree with you on that particular version of Mary Had A Little Lamb. It's definitely one of my favorites! It starts out with a long introductory solo (a couple of minutes)...then Stevie sings for about 30 seconds, then comes back with a smokin' solo that really kicks!! Not only some incredible pickin' but also some incredible rhythm playing (with Reese on a smoking keyboard accompaniment). This goes on for another two and a half minutes. Then Stevie sings for about 15 seconds, followed by a final solo, where he slows it down a bit and plays a couple of incredibly sustained notes. Then he speeds it up again to a breakneck pace...followed by a big OWWWW!! at the end. This version is full of great solos. There's about 45 seconds of singin' and about 5 minutes of guitar virtuosity.
