Allan Holdsworth: Devil Takes The Hindmost

In 1985, my best friend shared Allan Holdsworth’s Metal Fatigue album with me. We both nearly wore out the vinyl, and I became an instant fan of his work – picking up his subsequent albums over the following years.

I was devastated to learn of his passing yesterday and went back to many of those albums – and some videos.

Here’s a live clip of “Devil Takes The Hindmost,” from Metal Fatigue, recorded live at the Jarasum Jazz Festival with Jimmy Haslip on bass and Gary Husband on drums.

RIP, Mr. Holdsworth.
