Definitive 180g 45rpm Vinyl 2LP Edition featuring All-Analog Mastering by Bernie Grundman Mastering and Exclusive Foil-Stamped Jacket by Stoughton!

Friday Night In San Francisco is the landmark 1981 album that virtuoso guitarists Al Di Meola, John McLaughlin, and Paco De Lucia recorded at The Warfield Theatre on December 5, 1980 in San Francisco, CA at the height of their respective powers. All tracks are live except for the closer, "Guardian Angel," which is the opening theme from a song that appears on McLaughlin's 1978 album Electric Dreams. Friday Night In San Francisco is by far one of the most acclaimed guitar recordings ever made and as integral to the evolution of the acoustic guitar as any album in the genre before or since. From start to finish, the mighty trio of Di Meola, McLaughlin, and De Lucia match musical wits with aplomb, playing nylon-stringed classical guitars in a flamenco/jazz style to absolute perfection.

Every note. Every lightning strum. Every impossibly perfect run. Every dynamic blast. Every tonal nuance. Every staccato reverberation. Every unexpected moment of towering virtuosity. Every caught breath. Every thunderous applause. Everything you've loved about this iconic, reference-defining recording is laid bare, reproduced with stunning fidelity and nuance. Featuring all-analog mastering by Bernie Grundman Mastering and an exclusive foil-stamped jacket by Stoughton for this very special release, this Di Meola-McLaughlin-De Lucia classic could only come from the LP fetishists at Impex Records. Listen as Impex's 180g double vinyl LP edition, spinning at 45 revolutions per minute, reveals all of the above and more to your voracious, deep-listening ears. Get ready to redefine definitive once again!
