From Here To Eternity
The Story
"From Here To Eternity" is a special 3 CD set which brings together three CDs worth of German guitarist Uli Jon Roth's songs, from the albums "Earthquake", "Fire Wind" and "Sky Of Avalon: Prologue To The Symphonic Legends". In addition, the third CD also features the "Aquila Suite", twelve arpeggio concert etudes for solo piano, recorded in 1991. Roth wrote all the etudes, and a computer 'generated' the final performances heard on the CD.
