"Vinny Roth has put together a cd with real Blues,a great guitar sound and strong compositions. This disc has soulful grooves and melodies that keep your attention all the way through. With a strong rhythm section and modern harmonies all I can say is...I love "2 Stratz Are Better Than 1".....Jamie Glaser (Jean Luc Ponty, Chick Corea)
Rootsy rock and instro fusion are all tools in the repertoire of Queens,N.Y. native and now Virginia-based guitarist Vinny Roth. Backed by a bunch of session cats Vinny cuts right to the chase on a tasty album with diverse guitar styles and sounds. Highlights include an instrumental entitled "The Crippled Weight" that blends The Band's classics "Up On Cripple Creek" with "The Weight." With a couple vocal tracks and one live cut, Vinny's mostly instrumental ten track CD is filled with
slide-y 'lectric sounds ala Allman Bros. founder Dickey Betts and will appeal to a whole bunch of open mined guitar lovers who like their instrumentals between the genres. 20th Century Guitar (Dec. 2007)
