With the recent death of Les Paul, I decided I really must buy something by this guitar wizard. Trouble is..... I never really liked his multi tracked, multi layered sound There was never any doubting his massive ability as a guitarist, but,not for me! Then I remembered this album he made with Chet Atkins in the mid 70s, when vinyl was king. A friend of mine raved about it, I borrowed it, taped it, the tape snapped, and I now have the CD.
Ooh it's lovely! Two middle aged men , having fun, sparking off each other, and producing some great music!
It's very MOR, but hey I'm 62,and it rings my bell!
Studio chat left on the recording adds atmosphere to the session. Fave track has to be Moonglow/Picnic theme, and Duke Ellington's Caravan.
Play it while you're computing or ironing or pottering about the house! A warm, cosy disc, that you'll just love!
