Must Have Guitar Albums - Cream - Disraeli Gears

Disraeli Gears is the second album by British supergroup, Cream. It was released in November 1967 and went on to reach #5 on the UK Albums Chart. It was also their American breakthrough, becoming a massive seller there in 1968, reaching #4 on the American charts. The album features the two singles "Strange Brew" and "Sunshine of Your Love". The title of the album was taken from an inside joke. Eric Clapton had been thinking of buying a racing bicycle and was discussing it with Ginger Baker, when a roadie named Mick Turner commented, "it's got them Disraeli Gears", meaning to say "derailleur gears," but instead alluding to 19th Century British Prime Minister, Benjamin Disraeli. The band thought this was hilarious, and decided that it should be the title of their next album. In 2003 the album was ranked number 112 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. VH1 also named it their 87th greatest album of all time in 2001.

    Must Have Guitar Albums - Extreme - Pornograffitti

    The album was also the band's first stab at writing a concept album--it dealt with the media's subtle yet constant use of sex in advertising and it's effect on the public. If you're in the mood for rock with a progressive edge and loaded with six-string wizardry (courtesy of Nuno Bettencourt), just check out "Decadence Dance," "When I'm President," "Get the Funk Out," It('s A Monster)," "He Man Woman Hater," and the title track.

    Must Have Guitar Albums - Steve Vai - Passion and Warfare

    The one and only Satriani-taught and Zappa-tested virtuoso, Steve Vai, returns with his self-produced 1990 release, PASSION AND WARFARE. The album was inspired by sequential dream patterns Vai experienced earlier in his life, and results in one technically electrifying ride filled with vivid mysticism and groovy instrumental imagery. The album was recorded in his home studio, the Mothership, and released on Relativity/Epic Records. Vai says it best when he characterizes this album as "Jimi Hendrix meets Jesus Christ at a party that Ben Hur threw for Mel Blanc."
