2018 Eu reissue on 180g LP Recorded Onstage in 1980: Nylon-String Guitars, Pointillistic Details, Flamenco Melodies Come to Supreme Life on This Audiophile Pressing.
Jazzheads, guitar freaks, and audiophiles, listen up: Here's the iconic 1981 album that virtuoso guitarists Al DiMeola, John McLaughlin, and Paco De Lucia recorded at The Warfield Theatre on December 5, 1980 in San Francisco. All tracks are live except for the closer, "Guardian Angel," the opening theme from a song that appears on McLaughlin's 1978 album Electric Dreams.
Friday Night In San Francisco is by far one of the most acclaimed guitar albums ever made. DiMeola, McLaughlin, and De Lucia play nylon-stringed classical guitars to absolute perfection in a flamenco/jazz style. From start to finish, the set is as extraordinary as it is influential in the evolution of the acoustic guitar. And now, it sounds positively smashing.
