Guitar Clashes from Gainesville, Tokyo Guitar Clashers from Gainesville, Tokyo (P-Vine, 2000)
Featuring Mitsuyoshi Azuma. "This was recorded right after Roy finished his last stage in Tokyo [at the 6th Annual Park Tower Blues Festival] and was finished before he flew out the next day ...there were only about 6 hours available for making this record, and there were no prior rehearsing. The results came out rough for sure, but there are plenty great guitar playing that spark fire." -- Blues Ginza
