Richie Sambora - Stranger in Town (1991). I was not surprised to find that Mr.Sambora is as talented as he is. He is and was. He is an amazing singer and songwriter, and this will come as no surprise, he's a wonderful guitarist. But what really stands out on this album are the songs. "One Light Burning" is a ballad of intense passion and heart. "Stranger in This Town" is a bluesy, down beat gem with great arrangements and vibe through out it. On "Mr. Bluesman", Richie gives way to his hero, Eric Clapton, and on a song that Sambora wrote about him. It is a magnificent album from first song to closing track, and it explores every emotion of love.. from hurt to joy and wonder. If you ever liked Bon Jovi, then don't hesitate to get this one. Great production, terrific songs, and top notch musicianship are what this album is all about. A MUST have.
 No pop-metal riffs, no shredding and fast keyboards like 7800 Fahrenheit , Slippery When Wet and New Jersey . Sambora creates an album full of blues riffs and melodic solo.
