1350 Al Di Meola - Race With Devil on Spanish Highway
From: Elegant Gypsy, Year: 1977
Still listening to a great deal of Al Di Meola's music, so I figured I would pick another one of my favourites from his catalogue. This is one of his songs that, as a musician, you either get really inspired or depressed when listening to it. It just oozes with jaw-dropping musicianship from beginning to end.
From what I've found out there was a remake of the song in the late '90s on the Infinite Desire album featuring Steve Vai titled: "Race With Devil on Turkish Highway."
Here is the studio version on YouTube.
Here is a live performance circa '78 on YouTube.
