RIP Allan Holdsworth

RIP Allan Holdsworth. He was a quiet genius of the guitar, and influenced too many to count. Our label, Manifesto, had just released a 12-CD box set of all of his albums, on April 7th. If there is any small consolation, it is that he was happy to see all of his work re-mastered, re-released, and receive an excellent reception. Our deep condolences to his family.
