Various: "The Guitars That Destroyed the World"

Oddball though it is, this is a truly FANTASTIC album musically.  And the art, as you can see, is rather unique and strangely appealing.  The art is credited to "W. Weber."
The guitarists featured? Carlos Santana, Edgar Winter, Johnny Winter, Blue Oyster Cult, Spirit, John McLaughlin, Leslie West, Mountain, and the Mahavishnu Orchestra.
An amazing gem.
Released in 1973.

This LP went to an eager recipient in California.

  1. I have had this album in my collection for years and can attest to the great music included. An especially good track is the live Blue Oyster Cult version of 'Buck's Boogie'. Previously unreleased until this album. They used to play it in concert only. It later appeared on a live album, but this is a far superior version.
