Also, Aeon by Antony and the Johnsons.

1. Spanish Harlem - Rebecca Pidgeon

2. Mr. Bones - Steve Strauss

3. Nite Mist Blues - The Monty Alexander Trio

the best song to show to others is for them to choose one of their favorite songs. but as a generality, anything that has a good rhythm/groove will be just fine. basically if it's a song that you can dance to, it will show what grado is made of.

re: tres hombres tune, most blues rock of that era are pretty good examples to play. as you know, grados OWN the guitar sound, nothing else comes close as good. anyways, in keeping that spirit, here is one to check out:

john mayall: crusade - snowy wood
it showcases mick taylor on lead guitar before he was with the rolling stones. eric clapton left behind a legacy with this band but he did a pretty damn good job of following. great instrumental track...

Eagles - Hotel California.

Eye popping, jaw dropping and breathtaking expressions seen on 5 of my friends when they tried on my Alessandro MS-1 during the opening intro, followed by a "holy #@!$!" and a couple of blinks. They literally look dumbfounded, err, enlighten. lol

I love the rhythm section on this.

Also second the In Rainbows suggestion.

Rush: YYZ (Rush in Rio live version)

I've always found my 325is do very well with live recordings.
