According to the announcer on track 1, the recording begins at the halfway point, so the firsat half is missing. But at least you have some of the higher profile artists and the grand finale. I was able to identify all artists except one and the majority of the song titles. Theres an impressive list of personnel, but I'm sure a few people are still unidentified. This list is primarily those who are actually announced on the recording, plus a few guitarists I recognize on the grande finale that are mentioned in a few online articles as being there. Despite being chopped up a bit and incomplete, whats here is primarily good to excellent quality and many great musicians are present. There's a great version of the "Thrill Is Gone" with Henry Kaiser, Harvey Mandel and Freddie Roullette joining forces and a surprisingly hot "Stormy Monday" with Elliot Easton (The Cars) and Gregg Allman teaming up. This recording also includes a ten year old Nathan Cavaleri, who is a relatively well-known blues guitarist these days. The grande finale is a bit ridiculous and the mix wildly varies throughout its 14 + minute duration, but folks may still get a kick out of hearing "One Way Out" featuring 10 lead guitar players!
