Earl Slick

"In Your Face"

The Story
"In Your Face" is former David Bowie guitarist Earl Slick's third album, an eleven instrumental, two vocal (interestingly, both covers with guest vocals by Ron Young) CD, that will dazzle you with super guitar work, slinky slide playing, and solid energy. "In Your Face" was Slick's first instrumental effort, and came about as a result of a jam with bass player Kirk Alley and a conversation in 1984 with Terry Bozzio (whose drum playing on this album helps make it so appealing). A superb guitarist, Slick's style is all his own, and yet reminiscent of Jeff Beck and Stevie Ray Vaughan. The CD is one of Slick's personal favorites, and song highlights include "Surfer Junkie Dude" and "Tank" (plus "Across The River" for you harp fans).
