Steve Lukather, 7-time Grammy Award winner and Guitar Gods interviewee, has released a incredible collection of Christmas songs for Favored Nations called "Santa Mental". The disc features Lukather performing every song along with an incredible list of special guests that reads like a who's who of guitar greats.
That list includes Larry Carlton, Eddie Van Halen, Slash, Steve Vai, Jeff Babko, Mike Landau, and Luke's son, Trevor. The disc also features some other great musicians like Edgar Winter, Gregg Bissonette, Simon Phillips, and more.

The most amazing thing about the CD, however, is that it isn't just a flashy tribute to Christmas. The arrangements are incredibly sophisticated, wildly interesting, and very listenable. This CD, in my view, is among the best Christmas collections ever. More amazing, it was "thrown together" (as Luke says) in a mere 6 days.

This is one you don't wanna miss. Bottom line? Get it today!
