The Best Comp. Ever

This compilation consist of the cream of 1950s Atkins at his very best! A bargain buy! There are more than ten complete albums here-one of which on CD in an American website during the early nineties was priced at approximately £70! Bargain is not the issue here - Chet recorded more than a hundred albums in between arranging his own music and appearing on countless other artist's albums and working as A & R manager with the record company plus the odd TV appearance. How Chet found time to astound us with such arrangements beautifully thought out and executed with one of finest electric guitar sounds ever produced is a miracle. -Listen to "Iknow That You Know" -"Hidden Charm" - "Let It Be Me" - "Estrellita" - "Arkansas Traveler" - "Little Rock Getaway" - "Liza" to name a few and enjoy great playing coupled with tastefully exquisite musicality that was an inspiration to many 'greats' around today.
