Danny Gatton ranks with rock & roll’s all-time tragic guitar heroes. One of the eighties greatest guitarists, and unquestionably one of the most eclectic and versatile axe-men ever! He committed suicide in 1994 without achieving the kind of fame his talent should have provided. Most of the tracks here are originals, the exceptions being a John Martyn cover, Charlie Patton’s “Funky Mama,” “The Simpsons Theme,” and a heart-wrenching cover of the Beach Boys’ “In My Room”. Other beauties to mention are “Blues Newburg”, a fine blues named after his hometown, a really great “Quiet Village”, and even some humor with the “Simpsons” theme. “88 Elmira Street” would appeal to all fans of superb playing, and especially rockabilly and Brian Setzer fans.
