Man I saw these two live a few years back and this is a faithful recollection of that tour- shredorama with possibly two of the most elegant guitar virtuosi in the solar system-can't miss this one!

To bad Steve teamed up with a jerk

I love Steve and used to love Larry until I met him at a small venue and had a chance to meet him after. I have a guitar that has been signed by some of the greatest guitarist ever. I asked if he would sign it and he refused because he said I would just sell it on Ebay. Even his record producer was impressed with the autographs I had and surprised at Larry's response. One would think if you get shot and almost die you would be more loving and giving - I guess not in Larry's case.

Very Tasty

I was very pleasantly surprised by this album. I am not usually a fan of 70's era fusion-leaning wankers(and I use the term with only the greatest respect) but this is very tasty playing indeed. Highly recommended.

They Say All Music Guide

Lighting-fast phrases, spectacular solos, and soothing statements abound in this first ever “live” collaboration by two guitar icons. Larry Carlton on the left side and Steve Lukather on the right side are astounding on No Substitutions: Live in Osaka. This was the first recorded onstage collaboration of the guitarists, even though they had met nearly 25 years before performing in a club environment, and their first-take energy comes through loud and clear. Joined by drummer Gregg Bissonette, keyboardist Rick Jackson, and bassist Chris Kent, the award-winning guitarists perform a no-holds-barred set on five extended tunes that range from a 14-minute version of Jeff Beck’s “The Pump” to the legendary Miles Davis tune “All Blues” and Carlton’s signature piece, “Room 335.” The tremendous interaction between Carlton and Lukather works extremely well on “All Blues,” their frets working together in melodic harmony while displaying their original musical personalities. Amplified rock licks bring this song to another level that is devoid of any riffs in vogue on the jazz scene. However, Carlton and Lukather do remain true to the song’s original series of five scales, and each solos until they’ve completed the series. This is one awesome blowing date and is highly recommended for all true rock and fusion fans whether you were there or not. – Paula Edelstein
