Love Extended Guitar Solos? 'No Tears' - Duke Robillard & Ronnie Earl

'The Duke Meets The Earl' is the first time blues guitar giants Duke Robillard and Ronnie Earl have recorded an album together, which was released in 2005. 

Between the two, they have won six W.C. Handy Awards as Blues Guitarist of the Year! But this is not two guys duelling at a showdown at high noon; what it is is two good friends and two exceptional guitar players jamming together and making exceptional music for the joy of playing together.

This album is a great contemporary blues album, a must for blues guitar lovers. I chose the cover of Walter Price's 'No Tears' because it's 16 minutes long and features about 10 minutes of guitar soloing, so what's not to love?!
