Five Man Acoustical Jam

Despite having two amazing and heavy cds, this is the one that made them famous. This is the disc that made unplugged cool. The idea was great and the cd came out perfect, but not just anyone could have done it. Itís only because the band is so good with songs this good that it worked out so well. To hear the songs reworked and somewhat rearranged, but holding up so well, in this sort of raw form was really my favorite aspect of the cd, but ironically it was their cover of the old hippie song, Signs, that became the smash hit for Tesla. It was my least favorite song on the album to begin with and the radio played it to death, but I still love the rest of this cd. --Scott
