    What can be said about Shawn that hasn't already been said. My biggest inspiration as a guitarist though I can play nothing like him.

    I've got all his albums barring "Centrifugal Funk" with Gambale & Garsed.

    1 of my biggest inspirations for sure.

    "Good People in Times of Evil" & the follow up "Icon" are great at mixing eastern & western music.

    I'm a huge fan of John McLaughlin's Shakti & i'd put those 2 albums up with Shakti IAH.

    Great player, VERY under-rated as a song writer.

    "Personae", "Temporal Analogues of Paradise", "Time is the Enemy" (get the re-issued version if anyone is looking to buy it- much better mixing), "Abstract Logic", "Zen House" & his 2 solo albums- "Powers of Ten" (try to get a used copy of the original release) & "The Tri-Tone Fascination" (try to get the 1st US pressing 2nd hand, it hase 2 extra tracks- "Hardcase" & "Nine=101" on it) are ALL great.

    He's up there with McLaughlin, Holdsworth, Henderson & Greg Howe for high-level consistency of output.

    What a guitar player!


    EDIT- And also, try to get your hands on the Jens Johannson album "Fission" (where Shawn Lane and Mike Stern appear on) & Michael Shrieve's Two Doors album "In The Palace of Dreams" (Shawn is on the first 8 tracks as is Jonas Hellborg. Bill Frissell is on the final 11 tracks).

    "Powers of Ten" is the most accesable.

    If you like that, then check out the albums with Jonas Hellborg.

    I've listed all the albums in my post above yours. Most are still available brand new, but "PoT" & his other solo album "The Tri-Tone Fascination" are only available to buy 2nd hand for £30+.

    I think in some ways Tri-tone is his best work though it's hard to say.
