Great Rock and Blues Jams

"Phil Keaggy remains one of those underrated Christian musicians. Fans of Eddie Van Halen, Jimi Hendrix and even Nils Lofgren and Andre Segovia (classical guitarist) might love this outpouring of talent. Beatle fans might smile -- Keaggy has a Paul McCartney-like voice, except with an American accent.Clearly influenced by 60s and 70s rock and blues, Keaggy shows he is force in modern guitar stylings.His cover of Van Morrison's tune (from Avalon Sunset), "When Will I Ever Learn to Live in God?" is profound and provocative. His cover of Bad Finger's "Baby Blue" has a sheer Paul McCartney tone to it.With "Doin' Nothin'", he is 'doin' somethin', ripping from note to note like it is nobody's business.His blues-rock rendition of the traditional black gospel song, "John the Reveletor" came off twice as solid in a concert, but definitely deserves top-volume in your car as you take on freeway traffic.Explore other Keaggy CDs here as well. His ability to go from hard rock to quiet worship to flamenco-influenced acoustic stuff is astounding.I fully recommend "Blue" by Phil Keaggy.Anthony Trendl"
Nothing Blue About Keaggy's Guitar Playing

"A collection of surprisingly catchy pop tunes and a couple of extended guitar extravaganzas make for a fine album from the world's greatest guitarist which no one outside the Christian community knows about. The best song on the album is "John the Revelator" which would probably be an FM staple were it not for Christian lyrics. "Everywhere I Look" has a catchy melody that won't leave your head. "Shouts of Joy" features dazzling leads that sound like Steve Hillage. The cover of "Baby Blue", the old Badfinger hit, actually improves upon the original because of the blistering guitar solo which is missing in the Badfinger version. "Don't Pass Me By" brings to mind Eric Clapton's playing from his days with Cream. "When Will I Learn to Live in God" (penned by Van Morrison) is inspirational Gospel-rock at its best, both lyrically and musically. This album is a clinic in how to play pop rock and hard rock electric guitar, and any fan of great guitar playing, whether Christian or not, should have this in his or her collection."

"I am not a christian, so anyone tagged as a christian artist would get a cold shoulder. Lucky for me PHIL KEAGGY produces musik that does not deserve to be labelled and is so beautiful, full of his wicked sense of humour and inspirational, that labelling him CHRISTIAN ARTIST does nothing more than exclude a lot of unfortunate people from the pleasure of his musik. This CD contains songs, which made me a bit sceptical as I didn't want anything preachy. Fear not!!! He has a great voice and his lyrics are not overtly religious. His guitar playing is some of the best recorded ( get the CD '220' for instrumental superlatives ), but his songs are great, bordering on classic. If you like musik, forget the CHRISTIAN tag if it doesn't fit YOU and buy this man's musik for it's quality. You won't regret it."
