Highway to the Sun
Snowy White’s old pal Dave Gilmour makes a guest appearance on this 1994 classic by a lead guitarist who has played with some of the biggest names in rock. Snowy worked alongside Gary Moore in Thin Lizzy in the Eighties and later played with Pink Floyd, before launching his solo career with ‘White Flames’, an album also currently being re-issued by Repertoire.
‘Highway To The Sun’ is packed with the kind of sultry blues performances you would expect from Terence Charles White, the shy young man who first came to London from the Isle Of Wight in the Sixties, mesmerised by the likes of Eric Clapton and Peter Green. He tells his story and talks about the dozen tracks on this excellent album in a new interview with Chris Welch for the extensive CD liner notes.
Watch out for poignant numbers like ‘Can’t Find Love’, ‘Burning Love’ and ‘Heartful Of Love’. In fact, there is a whole lotta love burning throughout this album, including Dave Gilmour’s outstanding performance on ‘Love, Pain And Sorrow’.
We’ve been to the dark side of the moon.. now take the highway to…the sun.
