5.0 out of 5 stars The one and only 17 Feb. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I have several CHet Atkins albums, as I am a guitarist with eclectic tastes and love his style. If I were to own only one Chet Atkins album this would probably be the one. It showcases his wide range of style and virtusity from black mountain rag to the charming ballad duet with Dolly Parton to yakety axe. Its fun, it moves along, there are a wide variety of selections and it is well engineered. In a day when fewer people know about Chet this a a great way to understand how this man came to influence an entire music industry and style, was able to do so by his instrumnetal virtuosity, yet appealed to everyman. Buy it youll love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nobody mentioned its in HDCD ! ! ! 10 Jun. 2009
By Mike McAteer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
How is it that a nearly perfect album can be released by a nearly perfect guitar virtuoso like Chet Atkins and nobody mentions that it's released in the High Definition Compact Disc (HDCD) format?

Zowie! Wait till you hear it on a player with the HDCD capability. My lord, it is brilliant and smooth all at the same time. Plus, you'd swear Dolly is right in the room with you when she sings her bit.

There are so many releases in this format, but you have to check the backs of your CDs and look for the small HDCD wrapped in a rectangle outline. There seem to be many more country artists than other genres released in HDCD.

You simply have to google/yahoo/msn search for CD players equipped with it, and they're not that expensive. My suggestion is that you shouldn't wait, as they may go the way of typical electronics that get replaced by new technology sooner or later. But you'll be so glad you get one to capture this somewhat unknown feature on some discs that you just may happen to own already! You will have fun checking your library for them...so go ahead, check out your CDs and see how many you might have!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet Collection of Famous Work 16 April 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
As a thumbpicker of guitar, I really enjoy this album. The amazing guitar speed and clarity shown in "Main Street Breakdown" and "Cascade" are great examples. This album collects a nice balance of sweet sounding music and guitar playing across a range of years from which they were recorded.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wrong 27 Sept. 2013
By G. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
As a child of the 60s - 70s I grew up on classic rock. Of course I knew who Chet Atkins was but preferred Page, Clapton or Keaggy. So I needed more instrumentals to play during the day and decided to give this a go. (now own lots of Mr. Atkins') You gotta be kidding me. I had to do image searches to see how many fingers this guy had. Or maybe hands. Is Main Street Breakdown computer enhanced? How fast and clean. I'm almost overwhelmed. I just ordered a live album by his protege, Tommy Emannuel, although I'm already having a very difficult time doing anything but listening. And to think what I'd been missing all those years. Bravo.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Master and his Music 8 Aug. 2010
By Lois Lambert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Chet Atkins is a genius, and this CD shares his genius with other noted performers. His not shy about sharing the stage or even letting another performer take center stage. That is another trademark of genius. Anyone who is familiar with guitar music should enjoy this.
