Description

Although Hank Snow made his reputation as one of Country music's greatest singer / songwriters, it shouldn't be forgotten that he was also a very handy guitar player.

Never in quite the same league as say Chet Atkins and Merle Travis, and never forsaking his acoustic guitar for electric, Hank nevertheless wielded a mean guitar pick on many of his recordings. Indeed, he can be compared with Willie Nelson who followed in his footsteps.

This unique collection couples 12 instrumental recordings which exclusively or prominently feature the Snow guitar with 14 vocal tracks which feature significant Snow guitar breaks. Also to be heard on some tracks is the master, Chet Atkins, and with whom Hank Snow later recorded instrumental albums. The authoritative sleeve note by Paul Pelletier gives a full overview of Hank Snow's abilities.
