Something 4 The Weekend # 59

Here's what you need to know about this week's S4TW:

Sonny Sharrock is my fifth favorite guitar player.

Ask The Ages is one of my ten (#8) desert island discs.

"Who Does She Hope To Be?" contains my favorite guitar solo/playing of all time.

This song is pure, unadulterated loveliness from beginning to end. Melancholy, hope, wistfulness, longing...Expressed by a saxophone that sounds like an electric guitar, and an electric guitar that sounds like a saxophone...
Sonny Sharrock..."A horn player with a really fucked up axe," as the man himself liked to say.
Hotcha! Hank
