Wow. Has any guitarist had a five year span that tops dickey betts?

revival and liz reed from idlewild south
his work on LAFE:
His amazing lead guitar on AWTNM, Les Brers and Melissa + his work on Mountain Jam, and Little Martha, plus Blue Sky from EAP
His historic work on Brothers and Sisters (Jessica, Ramblin Man and Southbound)
And his Highway Call solo album in 1974.

That is one of the best 5 year runs in the history of rock.

Long live Dickey Betts!

I won't say they top it, but these also certainly rival the Betts run:

John McLaughlin '69-73....

with Miles:
In a Silent Way
Bitches Brew
...Jack Johnson
Live Evil

W/ Mahavishnu Orchestra:
Inner Mounting Flame
Birds of Fire
Between Nothingness and Eternity

w/Santana
Love Devotion Surrender
Welcome

and then throw in a few sole records and some other lesser known collaborations....

or maybe....Mic Taylor '68-'72

'68- Crusade-John Mayall's Blues Breakers
'69-Let it Bleed
'70-Ya's Ya's
'71-Sticky Fingers
'72-Exile on Main Street

...only all of the best Stones records

chiliD - that's six years, but i'm nit picking there. same with page - 6 years.

as for page - noted. that was historic.

If i limit it to American guitarist, maybe that will reduce the competition, yet still give Dickey the credit due.

Another thing to note: during those 5 years, the genres that dickey touched upon:
- hippie (revival)
- blues (obvious)
- jazz (liz reed)
- jam (mountain jam as an example)
- country (ramblin man)
- acoustic (pony boy and little martha)
- rock (whipping post and others)

Great thread, but there is just no comparison (IMO of course) to Jimi Hendrix in only 2 years AND he is american:

Are You Experienced (1967)
Axis: Bold as Love (1967)
Electric Ladyland (1968)

What about that other guitarist that Dickey played with? As I recall his legacy was pretty significant as well, even without the benefit of a five year span.

Jimi Hendrix did much more in far less time.

But Dickey had a great run. Dickey's playing in the 90's with Warren was pretty damned good too.

Duane accomplished more from 1967-1971 than any guitar player in history. The body of work, the
numerous artists, and the overall influence he had on the musical world was, and still is, astounding.

Obviously a much different genre of music, and not nearly comparable when it comes to writing lyrics, but Eddie Van Halen from 1978-84 also had a pretty damn impressive run. Especially when you consider his style and technique turned rock guitar on its ears and influenced an entire generation of guitarist that followed. Some would say as nearly as much as Hendrix did in his day.
