Les Paul is a legend, we see the recording techniques he pioneered in all parts of the modern music industry and his guitars are iconic. All this, and yet his talent still surpasses the hipe. An amazing guitarist and a heavenly voice (Mary Ford holds her own no doubt at all) make any recordings graced by their presence priceless. 10 stars would not be enough, let alone the max of five.
Amazing record by the man who invented the solid body electric guitar, soundboard, over dubbing, reverb, and all that good stuff! And his wife, who is one of the most amazing singers in Jazz history! Love it!
This is a great record. I especially like Nola. After hearing the Three Suns do Nola on a set of 45's I listened to Les do it. Les Paul was not just a legendary inventor of recording techniques and musical hardware; he was quite the virtuoso and what's more incredibly enjoyable to listen to. Mary Ford has a beautiful voice that when sung over Les's music makes quite an enjoyable experience.
