Album of the Day

Live from Austin TX, by Eric Johnson (2005): For a lot of people, their first exposure to guitar master Eric Johnson was on public TV's Austin City Limits. In fact, legend has it that EJ's first appearance on ACL was seen by Prince, who convinced his record label (Warner Brothers) to sign EJ to a contract. Another appearance, after his major-label debut Tones was released, cemented his status. It's that performance that's cataloged on this CD (there's also a companion DVD). This disc is a clear example of EJ's talent.
