The first volume of BHP's Guitar Masters compilation is a fun comp that goes zany throughout tons of musical genres. Among the 18 cuts are fun cover versions of such widely divergent tracks as the traditional American folk ballad "Shenandoah," ( Who knew it could rock and not be weepy), Edgar Winter’s "Frankenstein," and Stevie Wonder’s hit, "I Wish." Some excellent originals that incorporate smooth jazz ("Stay with Me"), an acoustic ballad ("What Can I Say"), and a bombastic rocker ("Space Talk"). A combo of instrumentals and vocals - B fingers is a standout.
