As you probably know, the drummer for the upcoming GH Euro gigs is Sebastian Sippola, who also happens to be a full time member of Swedish band, Plankton.
Anyhow, they have a couple of new releases out that I highly recommend if you're into Hendrix-inspired, retro-70’s, bluesy, expressive guitar
The first is Plankton 3 which is their third album and very latest work and the second is Rare Tracks 1998-2005, which consists of previously unreleased material.
Here are some samples from each
Thanks for the 'reminder', David
I bought their their first two albums back in the day, but haven't given them a spin in ages!
Excellent Vintage Rock! with a slight Jam Band feel!
GH collectors might be interested in these releases, also on the Grooveyard records label:
V.A. - Cream of the Crop (Cream Tribute, Glenn on 1 track - also feat. Richie Kotzen, Pat Travers a.o. - really not the best of the Tribute albums, but...)
Craig Erickson Project - Shine (CE played on some Trapeze dates back in '94 - Glenn on 1 track, a cover of Tommy Bolin's Wild Dogs)
Thomas Larsson - Harmonic Passion (Larsson played guitar on From Now On... and Burning Japan Live)
Tons of other great releases there - happy browsing!
Just to add to Christian's post that I recommend subscribing to their regular newsletter. Plenty of mp3 samples to listen to of otherwise (to my ears) unheard,& therefore 'missed' , artists
Here's the band live in Sweden from a couple of years ago...
