Gary Sussman: The Vinyl Years   

  (1974 - 1986)

A tribute to my brother Gary, my favorite guitarist ever. I ripped all of these off his vinyl records (does vinyl suck, or what? - so glad to live in the digital age) for my iPod, and thought I'd share with family & friends. As far as I know, these are all the records he's played on. In Astigafa he was one of three guitarists. In all the other bands, you're hearing his guitar.
