Album Review: Ah, Via Musicom

Ah Via Musicom

Ah Via Musicom

Capitol Records, 1990 ‎(CDP 7 90517 2)

In the Fall of 1991, I was able to see Eric Johnson play at the sold-out show at the Lisner Auditorium (Washington, DC) – paying $20 for a ticket from a guy whose friend was a no-show. “The Cliffs of Dover” was the signature piece of the Ah Via Musicom tour. Listening to the music then was like listening to waves of sound cascade over you like ocean tides. There are haters who say he has no soul, no rhythm, no real skill set beyond playing scales; but being awash in that sound was amazing.

OTHER: I originally owned Ah Via Musicom in cassette form (which I most likely purchased from Tower Records in Washington, DC); but that is long gone. Today I was able to get a CD copy from CD or not CD :-). I receive no monies, goods or services in exchange for reviewing the product and/or mentioning any of the persons or companies that are or may be implied in this post.
