Description

Raven presents two iconic albums on one CD from the acoustic guitar master CHET ATKINS - 'Pickin' My Way' (1971) and 'Superpickers' (1974).

Both these albums display the breadth and range of his fluid technique. A true Country music legend, Atkins made an indelible impression as a session guitarist and record producer and helped create the Nashville sound, combining pop with honky tonk. Having recorded for RCA as a solo artist since 1953, by the early-1970s Atkins was intent on expanding his range.

He achieved that successfully with 'Pickin' My Way'. "This is the one!" - Leo Kottke. "Superior sound" All Music Guide (4.5*).

For 'Superpickers' Atkins assembled a stellar cast of Nashville's finest including Johnny Gimble (fiddle), Weldon Myrick (steel guitar), Hargus Robbins (piano), Jerry Shook (guitar), Henry Strzelecki (bass), Bobby Thompson (banjo and guitar) and Charlie McCoy (harmonica). The proficiency of the players and sheer joie de vivre captured in the studio is readily evident.

"Wonderful playing. An A-list of Nashville musicians on a set of picking extravaganzas, 'Superpickers' is one of his best albums" ? All Music Guide.

With superb audio quality and detailed liner notes this is a must for guitar lovers and fans of classic country bluegrass.
