The Story
Originally recorded and released with the backing of major label (Elektra), now rereleased through Wounded Bird, George Lynch's 1993 solo album, "Sacred Groove", features six vocal numbers, and four remarkable instrumental tracks ("Tierra Del Fuego", "Love Power From the Power Head", "Memory Jack" and "I Will Remember"). "Tierra Del Fuego" is significant because it features major shred, as Lynch jams with Long Beach guitar monster Derryl Gabel, who won a contest to jam with Lynch on this track. "I Will Remember" offers a soulful, almost neo-classical groove, while "Love Power From the Power Head" is an explosive track in the Joe Satriani and Tony MacAlpine vein. A number of guest vocalists also make appearances on "Sacred Groove" - an essential addition to a George Lynch fan's collection.
