I Need You Tonight

Album: Eliminator (1983)
  • Like the Wishbone Ash track "Persephone", the group composition "I Need You Tonight" demonstrates masterfully that great guitar soloing is not necessarily synonymous with great speed. This lazy, blues style number showcases the versatility of the Reverend Billy Gibbons better than any other track off the monster Eliminator album.

    Whatever the story behind the song, this is a place we've all been, the fire inside burning out of control. The fire seldom lasts, but this one can be enjoyed for a full 6 minutes 13 seconds. Gibbons' soloing is augmented by the dominant bass of Dusty Hill, one of the most noticeable features of this power trio. >>
