I'm glad that Musicmaker and Cello collaborated on this effort to let the world know Guitar Gabriel's talents, and they are wonderful. This guy can play, sing and most of all, feel the blues. Mark Levinson spent some time remastering this great album using Cello's super audiophile technique to enhance the blues element of this masterpiece. The marketing of this series is good as well. You can find it at almost all mainstream music stores. Compare this album with John Campbell's Tyler, Texas Session, it's similar but completely different. Campbell can sing and play the blues, but Gabe definitely feels the blues like no one has. This is about the feeling and sentimentality of the blues, not merely playing it. So kids like Jonny Lang and Mike Welch need to listen to this for guidance. The best song on this already fantastic CD is "Old Fashioned Love." This song makes me believe again in old-fashioned love. Gabe left the world in 1996. His voice and talents should be remembered.
