Allan Holdsworth ‎- Secrets (1989) Intima Records/7 73328-1 - Original US Pressing - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz

Allan Holdsworth ‎- Secrets
Label: Intima Records/7 73328-1 | Release: 1989 | Genre: Jazz-Fusion
Original Mastering By Bernie Grundman
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz & 16bit/44kHz

Excellent addition to any prog rock music collection.
A definitive recording for this player and a well balanced showcase of his other-wordly gifts, 'Secrets' revealed an artist that had evolved beyond even the highest expectations and well past the most accomplished in his arena. Each cut holds a part of the strange alien path Allan Holdsworth takes the listener on, a ride with many turns of jazz style and phrases that seem to have been passed-over by other guitarists. His unstoppable cohorts Jimmy Johnson (bass), Alan Pasqua and Steve Hunt (keys), Vinnie Colaiuta (drums) and an appearance by Chad Wackerman make this an extra special record and Holdsworth's playing is at a creative and tonal high.
Allan Holdsworth - Atavachron (1986) Enigma Records/ST-73203 - US Pressing - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz

Allan Holdsworth ‎- Atavachron
Label: Enigma Records/ST-73203 | Release: 1987 | Genre: Jazz-Fusion
Mastered By Bernie Grundman
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC | 24bit/96kHz & 16bit/44kHz

Excellent addition to any jazz rock music collection.
I don't understand the hate, or at least disdain directed at this album. Is it the incredible nerdiness of the cover, which has a painting depicting Allan Holdsworth in a Star Trek-like uniform, holding his new toy, a Synthaxe MIDI controller? It can't be the music, which is similar in structure to most of Holdsworth's releases, and as usually, expertly performed.
Allan Holdsworth ‎- Sand (1987) Relativity/88561-8152-1 - US Pressing - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz

Allan Holdsworth ‎- Sand
Label: Relativity/88561-8152-1 | Release: 1987 | Genre: Jazz-Fusion
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC | 24bit/96kHz & 16bit/44kHz

This album is quite unusual for Holdsworth guitar sound fans, but it doesn't mean it's bad one. Main difference is there are only one full size classic Holdsworth's guitar composition ("Pud Wud", with Alan Pasqua's great keyboards on it). All others are very experimental, and the listener will be surprised because many of them don't sound as guitar- based jazz-fusion at all.
Allan Holdsworth ‎– Velvet Darkness (1976) CTI Records / CTI 6068 - US Gatefold - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz

Allan Holdsworth ‎– Velvet Darkness
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC | 24bit/96kHz & 16bit/44kHz
Label: CTI Records / CTI 6068 | US Release: 1976 | Genre: Jazz-Rock

Despite some obvious sound quality problems, I actually like this recording quite a bit. It sounds not so much like an Allan Holdsworth album, but more like a band brought together to sound like the Mahvishnu Orchestra.
