Powerhouse Records is a Washington DC-based artist-oriented label.
Powerhouse Records and Tom Principato is proud to announce an exclusive authorized release from Fender Telecaster icon and guitar legend and virtuoso Roy Buchanan of the CD "Roy Buchanan Live: Amazing Grace" from their "Guitarchives" Series.
These recordings are rare and unreleased never heard performances and many come from the Roy Buchanan estate. Most are unknown even in "collectors" circles, and date from the period 1972 - 1983 and feature many great musicians such as Dick Heintze, Malcolm Lukens, Tom Hambridge, Robbie Magruder and many others accompanying Roy at such notable venues as the Agora Ballroom in Cleveland, the Lone Star Cafe' in New York and the legendary Armadillo World Headquarters in Austin, Texas. There are 8 tracks total from 7 venues and a CD length of 45 minutes of pure Roy Buchanan at his best. A stunning version of Roy solo doing Malaguena from 1972 is a highlight. Topping off the artwork package are two archival photos taken by legendary Rolling Stone photographer Jim Marshall at one of Roy's concerts in San Francisco, Ca. in 1973.

Powerhouse Records is proud to present the latest release from our "Guitarchves" Series--"Danny Gatton Live In 1977-The Humbler Stakes His Claim" This release is comprised of newly discovered and previously unheard recordings made by Danny Gatton's sound engineer Chris Murphy throughout 1977 and 1978. What distinguishes these recordings from other live recordings is that these recordings were actually made with microphones placed in the audience, so there is a real feeling of being right there in the club with glasses clanking and audience responses, rather than the more sterile sound of a "board mix".
The set list features some Gatton repetoire standbys such as "Harlem Nocturne" two very different versions (one which features a cameo by the late Dick Heintze on Hammond Organ), "Fingers On Fire", Nit Pickin'", "Canadian Sunset" and two scorching renditions of "Sweet Georgia Brown" as well as obscure songs like Cal Tjader's "Soul Sauce" and two Blues numbers: the slow blues "Danny's Blues" and the shuffle "Walkin' With Danny".

Here are some press quotes from the original release year:
"Principato plays with pristine beauty and riveting emotional power; he's quite remarkable, and his meaty blend of blues, R&B, and rock will restore your soul"...Dave Richards-Erie, Pa. Time
"Excellent! He has an enormous talent at telling stories in his solos, he doesn't play only 'standard' licks. Guitarist Pat Metheny in an interview with "Guitarist" Magazine (Paris, France) upon hearing "In The Clouds".
