Sha-ROCK!
Dec 03, 2009, 19:42
Sonny Sharrock is a wonderful guitarist, and he is a big part of the appeal of pretty much any album he appears on as a side man (Pharoah TAUHID, side 2 of JACK JOHNSON, Wayne Shorter SUPER NOVA . . . )

My favorite of his is the 1975 PARADISE album, co-credited with ex-wife Linda Sharrock.

It's like fusion sorta, but unique (imagine Eno producing 70's pop R&B -- with Yoko Ono and Sonny Muthafuggin Sharrock!!) Critics hated it, didn't sell shit, supposedly Sonny himself said he "wished it had never seen the light of day!"

I LOVE IT!
