iTunes Review

Jerry Reed was a man of many musical personalities: the hotshot guitarist who gave Chet Atkins a run for his money, the happy-go-lucky hitmaker, the burnished balladeer, and more. But this compilation focuses on Reed's most popular mode: purveyor of a loose-limbed country/R&B amalgam full of good-time vibes and semi-spoken vocals.

He takes on the mantle of country-pop crooner quite convincingly on "A Thing Called Love" and lets his guitar skills shine on the masterful acoustic-based instrumental "The Claw."
