Chet Atkins Mister Guitar 180g LP
Featured in Michael Fremer's Heavy Rotation in the February 2006 Issue of Stereophile!
This album features Chet Atkins as “Mister Guitar”, who, as a soloist, only
allowed a small and highly discreet rhythm group to accompany him. The result is
a refreshingly pure and unadulterated steel-string sound without frills and
padding and so has little in common with the commercial country music of the
masses. With his relaxed, technically perfect and highly variable playing
technique, Atkins shows us what the New World has to offer in the way of folk
music: highly melodic numbers which delight the ear with the simplest of means.
