I assume now would be a good time to ask what other than "Rising Force" I should get into? I've had that album on repeat for the past week or so.

Marching Out and Trilogy, then get Odyssey if you still want more. After that, it's time to give his live material a try. Live '85 is on YouTube, and features a young YJM at the peak of his powers. There are also numerous quality bootlegs, both video and audio.

I have The Genesis. Birth of the Sun may be my favorite work by him.

Looks good to me I guess.

Though I would add Seventh Son for sure....possibly Revelations too.

Can someone please do one for Steve Cropper? I'm desperately trying to figure out what to listen to with him on it.

Is he playing that low rhythm guitar on "Born Under a Bad Sign" by Albert King, or is that Albert?

My guess would be it's Steve but I haven't actually seen evidence.

It most certainly is. I was a big fan of this live track of theirs called Bombay Vindaloo. and I like his playing on Metropolis and Mirror. I fail to understand why he doesnt appeal to me at all though. or Dream Theater too for that matter, beside the 3 songs I mentioned. Ive tried giving them a fair shot, and they're definitely one of the 5 most popular metal bands in this country, but I just cannot like their music

Under a Glass Moon, Another Day, Home, Lines in the Sand, Glasgow Kiss, and actually a song off their last album called Lost Not Forgotten all have great solos.
