Description

Four Chet Atkins master class albums featuring splendid duo sessions with Les Paul, Mark Knopfler, Jerry Reed and Tommy Emmanuel on essential Double CD.

Chet Atkins C.G.P. (Certified Guitar Player) ? with a 50-year legacy as the epitome of the modern guitar master, a true Country music legend and multi-Grammy Award winner. If Chet was an impeccable craftsman in his own right, then when he recorded with other elite players the results were doubly brilliant.

This collection combines four albums of genuine master class guitar duets: Guitar Monsters (1978) with Les Paul, "an enjoyable disc, it's a joyous truffle" (All About Jazz); Neck and Neck (1990) with Mark Knopfler, the single 'Poor Boy Blues' won the Grammy for Best Country Collaboration, "the most focused and arguably the most rewarding record Atkins has released" (All Music); Sneakin' Around (1992) with Jerry Reed and Chet "trading licks with acute, long-simmering telepathy" (Guitar Player); The Day Finger Pickers Took Over the World (1997) with Tommy Emmanuel, "At 73 Chet still had another great recording in him" (All Music), it took his career out on a very high note. With superb audio quality and detailed liner notes, a must for guitar lovers.
