This British retrospective captures two decades' worth of Snowy White's guitar magic. The album includes "Highway to the Sun" (from the album of the same name), "Renegade," and "Memory Pain" (from White's stint with Thin Lizzy), the unedited version of Pink Floyd's "Pigs on the Wing" (on which White solos) and collaborations with Peter Green, Rick Wright, and Al Stewart.

All Music Guide


Terence "Snowy" White is an English blues and rock guitarist. Although he has released numerous recordings of his own and recorded two albums as a member of Thin Lizzy, he is most widely known for his association with Pink Floyd.

The title of this compilation highlighting his work from 1974 to 1994 comes from Snowy's signature guitar - the Gibson Les Paul Goldtop he purchased in 1966. While some of the tracks featured here - particularly his solo hit Bird Of Paradise - may be available on other Snowy White compilations, much of his work is out of print and this CD included seven tracks which had not previously been released - some of which have not been released since.

The Pink Floyd association began when he was asked to join them playing guitar and bass on the 1977 In The Flesh tour of North America in support of the Animals album. His audition consisted of recording a solo to bridge Pigs On The Wing (Part I) and Pigs On The Wing (Part II), creating one of the better known Pink Floyd rarities as this extended version was only ever released on the 8-track cartridge version of Animals before being included on this CD. Snowy went on to appear in the live performances of The Wall as part of The Surrogate Band who opened the show and supplemented the members of Pink Floyd during the show. He has since regularly toured with Roger Waters.

The association with Pink Floyd continues on this compilation with the inclusion of Drop In From The Top from Rick Wright's 1978 solo album Wet Dream (featured in full elsewhere on this blog) and a guest appearance by David Gilmour on the track Love, Pain And Sorrow.

Fans of Fleetwood Mac founder Peter Green can find rare rehearsal versions of two tracks from his In The Skies album - the title track and Slabo Day - with Snowy taking the lead. (For more Peter Green rarities, there's a great blog featuring Fleetwood Mac solo work in the links section.)

The rare material also includes two tracks backing Al Stewart during a live concert broadcast on US radio.
