Mine arrived this morning, listened to it 3 times already - stunning, love the playing, love the interpretations, love the packaging, love the groovy mock vinyl cd :clap

Byrd's version of World Anthem is current highlight, but I will be doing a full review for my website www.virtuosityone.com (shameful plug) for the December update.

Bravo Willy Bravo :winky

He's Calling!...Headphones!!!..
I think every song is great, the whole package is awesome. Thanks Willy for your time and effort. It sounds much better on my cd player than over the phone...lol

Excellent package. Willy did a great job. After one listening, John Norum's, Rick Ray's and Randy Hansen's effort struck me as totally amazing. All of the songs are great!

Nice job Willy. I am sure Frank was pleased with how well this project turned out.

Got mine yesterday. I've only had time to listen to it once. :roll:

There were quite a few surprises, mostly pleasant! 8)

I'll comment more when I've had a chance to listen to it a few more times. :mrgreen:

I just finished listening to it for the first time.
Awesome
I'm going to have to play it for a while before I can pass any judgement on the poll.
It all sounds really good.

If it helps you at all, I haven't got it, nor any note yet either... The post office is probably stuck with all those Xmas mails.

However, lets test how fast the mail travels from Finland to Denmark. I'm sending you a test mail in 15 mins... :mrgreen:

I think they lost it because they couldn't resist opening it up and playing it after they ran it through the x-ray discovering it was a cd of Frank's music.. LOL :P
