He started out in harpplayer Johnyn Dyer's band and wento on to work withe Mighty Flyers. Today, Holmstrom's one of the most respected and innovative guitarists in the US. This is the styleful re-issue of his debut CD. Comes with digipak and can be offered at a vry attractive price. All-instrumental, but don't worry. No sleepy moments on this CD. This is high-energy swingin' blues guitar as developed in the '40s by stylists like Pee Wee Crayton, or Tiny Grimes. Holmstrom is a master of the fat-toned guitar with super reverberation and spare accompaniment. Great. Highly recommended!! - Digipak. RICK L.A.
