Raven presents for the first time on CD two iconic albums from guitar master Chet Atkins. A true Country music legend, Atkins made an indelible impression as a session guitarist and record producer. He helped create the Nashville sound, a style of country music that combined pop with honky tonk. Having recorded for RCA as a solo artist since 1953, by 1975 Atkins was intent on expanding his range.

Inspired by John D. Loudermilk's "The Night Atlanta Burned", the album of the same name was a masterful fusion of classical-country-bluegrass tunes and influences featuring The Atkins String Company, a top-notch chamber country ensemble led by Atkins himself.

He continued the theme in 1979 with The First Nashville Guitar Quartet, a classy effort featuring four cowboy boot-wearing, tuxedo-clad acoustic guitarists playing in the style of a string quartet. With superb audio quality and detailed liner notes this enlightening and top-value 2-for-1 CD is a must for guitar lovers and fans of classic country bluegrass.
