Rick Bishop's Mister Hide (USA 1982)




Now back to the great American tradition of furious guitar fusion.  This is a totally unknown album, undeservedly so, although when I glanced at RYM I saw the mighty osurec was well ahead of us on this.  There are definitely throwaway tracks though, namely, the standards that make up half of side 2 (which were written by Miles Davis).  The compositions by Rick are astonishing though, for the most part.  The music recalls Tony Palkovic, Tony DuPuis, note how the green cover of "Every Moment" is now blue here.

Here's the wonderfully brilliant ST A2 track:





Please enjoy this great slice of summer fusion!  Perfect to listen to next to a barbecue and beer...
