Incredible, indelible guitar instrumentals from the early years of Chet Atkins – later to conquer civilization with his 60s Nashville Sound – here with mid 50s guitar exotica that really is eclectic and well ahead of its time! Chet's 60s production work ranges from absolute genius, with interesting writers and vocal talent (Bobby Bare, Roger Miller), to sappy mediocrity with less adventurous artists – but his own record
s hardly ever lacked imagination. These countryish & jazzier early record
ings are by no means an exception! Record
ed in both Chicago and Nashville and pulled from his wonderful early LPs for RCA, titles include "Sunrise Serenade", "Honeysuckle Rose", "Caravan", "Mister Sandman", "Minute Waltz", "St Louis Blues", "Alice Blue Gown", "Waltz In A-Flat", "Petite Waltz", "Tenderly", "Intermezzo", "Indian Love Call", "Gavotte In D" and much more.
