AllMusic Review by

The first of three samplers of the music of various loop-based guitarists put out by Vestapol is most notable for three performances ("Twisted Blues," "Jingles," and "Yesterdays") by Wes Montgomery in 1965, taken from an appearance on English television. In addition, there are a pair of unaccompanied solos from Joe Pass, two selections apiece featuring Herb Ellis and Barney Kessel, and a collaboration by the pair on 1979's "A Slow Burn." All of the performances are complete and worth seeing.
