Rumor has it that DiMeola doesn't want his performance released.<br><br>If that's true... the album would have to be resequenced/edited  :'(

Isn't this just material that came out on other albums?  I would much rather see Dance Me This, Petit Wazoo, Rage and Fury come out after Trance-Fusion.

[quote author=Sebastiaan link=board=wishList;num=1031089900;start=0#5 date=06/15/03 at 17:57:24]<br><br>Yes, but DiMeola was right, his guitarsolo on 'Clowns on Velvet' isn't that good, imho. The first part he's good, lot of energy, but then he's repeating himself, same fast licks, the same scales... the band is really great, though.  [/quote]<br><br><br>I agree... not really a great solo by Al... s'pose he could do the Steve Vai and go back in the studio and fix it, though.<br><br><br>Personally, though... I think there's a point where a person has to look at what they did as a moment in time and decide if that moment is important enough to share... regardless of personal performance.<br>

al's vanity prevented this from being released, maybe he's lightened up after all these years

jaypfunk...I am listening to the Ritz show now and it is good but I am just wondering why you think it's the best...ever...not that I disagree.

ps:for old times sake how about a re-visit to your old signoff picture....please.
pps:you still crack me up.

DiMeola needs to just man up and live with the solo he did. I've written out some of his stuff and he's quite repetitive. 24 bars or so and the rest is copy/paste to the out.

He has great dexterity on the gtr but he'll never be accused of being very creative. I never thought he fit very well in the Guitar Trio with McLaughlin & DeLucia either. Coryell was not the same calibre player as Al but was way more creative though. Gimme creativity over machine gun triplets any day.



Peace. 8)

I would buy this if they made an official release! And Warts & All! And maybe even Crush All Boxes...

Which is why Coryell is a much higher caliber player than Al Di.
