Of course there is nothing wrong with an album full of guitar solos. Certainly not if they are played by Warren Haynes and the like. His solos have a fluency that transcends the virtuosity of a guy like Steve Vai. It's not a show of flashing fingers and impossible to play licks, rhythms, and experiments with little known scales. (And I do like Vai but I also love great music). Haynes is at times very reminiscent of Clapton unleashed. His guitar playing never bores and is always about the music and never about showing of. It's about hard rocking and riffing, blues playing, slide, fast licks and listening to the music.
The different guests are all playing at a very high level of musician ship. The songs are varied and cover a wide range of styles (but all are obviously very guitar oriented). The spotlight always returns to Warren Haynes and he has the chops to keep it going for three hours.
Great DVD also.
