Dave Hole – Steel On Steel (1995)

FrontCover1Steel On Steel” features “blistering, relentless slide strafes and single line solos” (Guitar Player Magazine) from Australian bluesman Dave Hole. For his third CD, Hole chose to use producer Jim Gaines – with spectacular results. Even the Detroit Free Press showers the accolades, “This blistering steel guitar player’s searing new AlligatorRecords “Steel On Steel” CD is the album I can’t get enough of. Steel guitar freaks like me, wait’ll you hear this guy play. You’re just gonna go crazy.” (Well, actually it’s slide guitar not steel guitar…) Guitar Player Magazine concludes, “Dave Hole scorches the strings… “Steel On Steel” comes at you so hard you’ll barely have time to catch your breath.
