Product Description

British born guitarist Snowy White (Born Terence Charles White) first became interested in music at the age of eleven when he was inspired by blues musicians Buddy Guy and B.B. King. He pursued his blues style in a number of bands however during the seventies Snowy made a reputation for himself playing numerous sessions for a wide variety of musicians such as Al Stewart, Cliff Richard and Peter Green. More famously Snowy toured as second guitarist with Pink Floyd augmenting the bands sound on the tours to promote the Animals and The Wall albums. By late 1979 however tiring of the session scene Snowy accepted the offer to join the rock band Thin Lizzy. Snowy recorded two albums with Thin Lizzy (Chinatown and Renegade) and completed a number of successful tours before deciding that the bands music and more importantly their lifestyle wasn't to his taste. No Faith Required is the first in a series of reissued Snowy White albums that have been unavailable for some time. No Faith Required was originally released in 1996 and was the first album to be recorded with The White Flames. The album is a set of Snowy White originals which finds the guitarist in fine voice over his distinctive guitar style. This re issue will also contain two previously unreleased bonus instrumental tracks that are drawn from the White Flames Instrumental Sessions.

I love Snowy White, and so it is with a heavy heart that I give this such a low score.

First, the good news. Midnight Blues is one of the finest blues instrumental pieces I have ever heard, and if any proof were needed, this track showcases Snowy's prowess as one of the best guitarists ever to plug in and play. Unfortunately, I already had this one on a compilation album. But he was totally in the zone the day they taped this, and they captured pure magic.

Dangerous Bends is fantastic too, fabulously Santana-esque, which wouldn't suit everybody, but I love it.

Canyon is mind-blowingly haunting as an instrumental, but the whole band make this track so good, not just the lead guitar.

And the title track is very good too.

So why such a low score? Because most of the rest of this album should have been cut and left on the editing room floor.

I would have given this CD a higher final score were it not for the fact that I know Snowy and his pals can do so much better. The proof lies elsewhere in my CD cabinet.

Realistic

The Way It Is

Restless

All the above are better than this in my book.

Sorry!

Snowy White continues to impress with his enjoyable guitar work, one of the few who actually push the ratio in favour of instrumental than needless vocals. Over the years his vocal style has changed, it's become a bit more like a rap narrative now, no melody needed. But good stuff anyway, proper music by proper musicians for proper music lovers. He is eloquent at both the structural guitar work or riffs and chords and the nifty-fingered solo breaks. Sometimes there is a sense of formula construction music, but at least its a good formula.

One of Snowy's Best Studio Albums 25 Feb. 2010
By Matthew - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
As the title states, I would put this at the top of Snowy White and the White Flames studio recordings. A myriad of sounds, I really dont know or wish to catagorize. Yes, there is some blues, but much more. Refreshing from beginning to end. Some of Snowy's best lyrics. If you enjoy Snowy, definitely pick this one up!

Clean, Clear Blues 17 Jan. 2013
By To The Max"Bax" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
In 1996, `Snowy White and The White Flames' band recorded their first album together as a trio, it was called `NO FAITH REQUIRED'. The band toured throughout Europe, with their fan-base gradually increasing.

Snowy White, self taught guitarist, has been around for a while and has played with the likes of Thin Lizzy, Peter Green, Pink Floyd, and Jim Capaldi to name a few. A great sessions guitarist whose White Flames, Blues Agency, and blues Project offerings/compilations are legendary. One of Britain's best, and most talented blues guitarists. With the edgy, clean bluesy sound that only he can master from his well loved vintage Gibson Les Paul Goldtop.

"Snowy White is one of a handful of classic blues-orientated British electric guitar players - musicians whose sound, technique and style has echoed the originality of the blues with the excitement of contemporary rock."

Always a tight band of great musicians in accompaniment, great percussion with a semblance to the Santana style. Full sounds, intricate fretwork and not a wasted note among the lot.

Snowy's work with Pink Floyd is legendary, I read...

"In June 1990 Roger Waters, having split from the Pink Floyd, asked Snowy to perform with him on the spectacular `The Wall' show, in front of 350,000 people in Berlin. This was televised live across the world and the resulting video was one of the biggest sellers in the USA that year. The live album was also a world-wide hit, containing performances from many guest artistes, including Van Morrison, Joni Mitchell, The Band and Bryan Adams. For many of the audience though, one of the most memorable moments was Snowy's guitar solo in `Comfortably Numb' played from the top of the eighty foot wall."

The man is top notch and all his recordings are choice. You can't go wrong with any Snowy White projects. One of my favorite artists of all time.

5 stars easily. Take a listen to Highway to the SunTunes can be perused at You Tube.
