The Raspberry Jams
"The Raspberry Jams" are a collection of demos, songs and ideas on guitar from the archives of Jason Becker's many tapes. In the words of Jason Becker himself, "The songs on "The Raspberry Jams" were all recorded so I wouldn't forget them as possible songs for some CD. I never planned on releasing these versions, but as I listened to this stuff, I thought, 'hey, it isn't right to hide this neat music.' So here you go. I hope you get as big of a rush listening to it as I do." For a fascianting glimpse of immense talent in the rough and raw, check out the 25 raspberry jams contained on this CD.
