    I've seen Phil live twice, both were a great time.

    The first time was solo, the 2nd time was with a band.

    If you've seen him play solo, you know that is an understatement, ha.

    His "Philly Live" DVD is great.

    I agree. I have seen his solo act and he is the master of "looping".

    He is an amazing guitarist.

    The Glass Harp stuff is really good too.

    great artist and record. i've seen phil with glass harp a couple times, always worth it. i've seen him solo as well, great looping and acoustic playing.

    I was just thinking about this song last week, for the first time in years! I've never heard this studio version. I bought a live album many years ago called How The West Was One, on the strength of a quote from Jimi Hendrix, where he mentioned Phil's name when asked what it was like to be the best guitarist in the world. I'd never heard of Phil at that time, so I decided to check it out. It includes Phil & his band, and some other Christian artists. Phil's tunes blew me away! I was very impressed, to say the least.

    Thanks so much for posting this!

    Youtube is for watching. For listening, you want a turntable, stereo amplifier, and speakers or headphones.
