Yes, this is the way the true Greg sounds, very good sound quality (Johnson-amp), drums by Atma Anur (Perpetual Burn from Jason Becker!!). Nice mix of fast nummers and reasonable relaxed. Greg Howe uses many arpeggio's on this album, nice recognizable riffs...just hear it!!

Greg used Fender amps on this recording, and currently uses Johnsons. Billy Sheehan on bass. This is the only studio production Greg did solo as he recorded all his newer albums himself. I disagree with the "true Greg" comment, as he went more fusion-oriented on almost all subsequent recordings. Still very good, if a little bright on the guitar production.

um dos melhores que j ouvi,... apesar de que agora sua linha mais fuzion,.... achei que ele melhorou bastante, na verdade j era bom.

In a time of the speed demons this was a welcome piece to the puzzle. A nice mixture of speed and melody. Fantastic vibrato. The guitar mix is a little bright but not abrasive. The rhythm section is right on. "Red handed" is a master piece. I've only heard small amounts of Howes' later material. This is the stuff to make you go back to the wood shed.

Hey gary, did you check out Howe II? I think it's got Greg's brother on vocals (and Greg on guitar but of course). It came out about a year or so after this and I thought it was pretty damn good. Better production, and the songs had some pretty good hooks. A nice departure from the straight ahead instrumental style (which is also good) found on this disc. I have a cassette somewhere...probably doesn't even play anymore...

From: Sosa Date: March 17, 2004 at 5:08
Howe II - High Gear... a good album as well

From: edwithmj Date: June 19, 2011 at 12:48
Starts off with a great one Kick it all Over and is jazzy and rocking all the way throughout. This is Greg at his best.
