Originally Released in 1985!

Originally released in 1985, this is the Grammy-nominated Alligator debut from the late genius of pyrotechnic blues-rock guitar. Roy had a spellbinding arsenal of chops and tone, and he called When A Guitar Plays the Blues "the best album I ever made." Includes "Short Fuse," "Mrs. Pressure" and "Hawaiian Punch."

Technically awesome and explosively soulful guitar
