"Most of the blues albums that cross my CD player tend to follow trails already blazed by Stevie Ray Vaughan or B.B. King. The newer albums have large elements of virtuosity and energy, but something seems to be missing--something like originality. So it was a surprising pleasure to discover Lookout (Black Top), an album of 16 original guitar instrumentals by Rick Holmstrom.
