CHET ATKINS with Les Paul, Mark Knopfler, Jerry Reed & Tommy Emmanuel (380)

Four Master Class Albums 1978-1997 (Double CD) RVCD-380

Four CHET ATKINS master class albums featuring sessions with LES PAUL, MARK KNOPFLER, JERRY REED and TOMMY EMMANUEL on essential Double CD. Chet Atkins C.G.P. (Certified Guitar Player) – with a 50-year legacy as the epitome of the modern guitar master, a true Country music legend and multi-Grammy Award winner. Chet also made an indelible impression as a session guitarist and record producer. If Chet was an impeccable craftsman in his own right, then when he recorded with other elite players the results were doubly brilliant. This collection combines four albums of genuine master class guitar duets: Guitar Monsters (1978) with Les Paul (recorded for RCA) was described as “an enjoyable disc, one whose best moments are hard to resist. For guitar mavens, it’s a joyous truffle” (All About Jazz).

Neck and Neck (1990) with Mark Knopfler (recorded for Columbia), the single ‘Poor Boy Blues’ won the Grammy for Best Country Collaboration while the album itself is “the most focused and arguably the most rewarding record Atkins has released” (All Music); Sneakin’ Around (1992) with Jerry Reed won the Grammy for Best Country Instrumental Performance, with Chet and Jerry “trading licks with acute, long-simmering telepathy” (Guitar Player); At 73-years of age Chet was at the top of his game when he recorded the splendid duo session The Day Finger Pickers Took Over the World (1997) with Australian guitarist / composer Tommy Emmanuel. Chet and Tommy chose “superior material for their acoustic guitars, and at 73 Chet still had another great recording in him” (All Music), it took his career out on a very high note. With superb audio quality and detailed liner notes this entertaining double CD is a must for guitar lovers.
