Roy Buchanan – Second Album – LP

This Elemental Music release presents the second LP for the Polydor label by Arkansasborn Telecaster virtuoso Roy Buchanan,
considered one of the most soulful masters of the electric guitar. Buchanan pioneered the use of controlled harmonics as played by Jeff Beck, Robbie Robertson and ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons.
Once described as “The Best Unknown Guitarist in the World”, he was even feted by The Rolling Stones as a possible replacement for Brian Jones (along with his fellow Polydor label mate Rory
Gallagher). Second Album was his best selling studio LP and is still pure class after 43 years. It plays to Buchanan’s strengths: with only 3 vocal songs, there’s plenty of room for Roy to steal the show with his swashbuckling fretwork. Elemental Music, together with
Universal Music Group, present the best selection of 70’s legendary Rock out of print titles from the vaults of classic labels such as
Polydor, MGM or Decca, among others.
