Soul on Ten
Musician magazine called Robben Ford one of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of the 20th Century.” He proves it here on Soul on Ten. Eight of the 10 tracks were recorded live at The Independent in San Francisco, while the other two were recorded live in studio. The live renditions of these previously released songs (and three new tracks) add a depth that can only be captured in the live setting, especially on the 11-minute “Nothin’ to Nobody” and his B.B. King tribute “Indianola.” I had never heard of Robben Ford before this album. If you haven’t, then you need to. You are in for a real treat.
