His writing could be hit or miss, but he was undeniably a great guitarist with a distinctive voice.

I remember it was seen as something of a coup when Level 42 snagged Mr. Holdsworth's talents as guitarist for their "Guaranteed" album. That's the only one of his substantial canon in my Record Cell.

I could use some help here. Is there anything in Allan Holdsworth's oeuvre that merits a tribute on my next show? I've tracked through his work, and everything I've heard so far is very dated-sounding jazz fusion. Truthfully, based on what I've heard, if someone gave me one of his records, I probably wouldn't bother listening to both sides.

I seem to recall liking the 1 album by King Crimson/Roxy Music spin-off band U.K., but that was a long time ago.

Probably U.K. or his album with Soft Machine, the name of which escapes me.

Edit: the Soft Machine album with Holdsworth is called Bundles. I've not heard it.

Frank Zappa always spoke highly of his art.
