Legendary

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.

Mary Ford has a beautiful voice that when sung over Les's music makes quite an enjoyable experience.
