Atkins' virtuosity as a guitarist has never been in question, but here it's allied with good material and taste, showing him as a fine blender of hillbilly, boogie, and jazz styles in a variety of contexts. It's mostly instrumental, of course, but wisely his talents as a sideman are showcased here and there too on vocal sides by the Carter Sisters and Mother Maybelle, Eddy Arnold, the Everly Brothers, and Don Gibson.
Exclusively for Prime members. I never really heard him until just a couple of years ago when I picked up a CD at a local library when I was feeling a bit glum and wanted to find something perhaps a bit surprising. I was teaching a class of college freshmen and was disappointed with how devoid of any sense of recent (or any other!) cultural history they all were-even the "A" students.
