Tommy Bolin Whips and Roses Vol I & II £5.97 @ Tesco

Found 10th Mar 2010
Tommy Bolin was one of the great guitarist but never achieved the recognition his genius deserved having died tragically young at just 25 but left behind some great music. Whips and Roses and Whips and Roses II features much previously unreleased archive material. - for some reason this double CD is cheaper than either CD on it's own.

Tommy Bolin is perhaps best known for replacing Ritchie Blackmore in Deep Purple. Prior to that he played on Billy Cobham's highly influential and acclaimed Spectrum album.

BTW Tesco say delivery is 1 to 2 weeks but I ordered last night and got an email to say it was dispatched today!
