A pair of Holiday albums from Nashville guitar legend Chet Atkins – back to back in a 2CD set, complete with a huge amount of bonus material too! First up is the classic Christmas With Chet Atkins – a sweet strummy Christmas album from the great Chet – a set that's filled with guitar-based tunes that have a special Holiday feel – some of which have warm vocal passages from the Anita Kerr quartet! We always love Chet on RCA during the classic years, but his warm sound is especially nice for the Holidays – a sort of cozy, cuddly approach to guitar that sounds great on these familiar tunes – and which is recorded here with some of those perfect RCA country touches of the early 60s! Titles include "Jingle Bell Rock", "Jingle Bells", "Silver Bells", "White Christmas", "Blue Christmas", "Silent Night", and "Little Drummer Boy". Next is East Tennessee Christmas – an early 80s album from guitar great Chet Atkins – one that really updates his sound for a modern generation, yet still leaves plenty of room for his masterful work on the strings! The record has fuller backings on most tracks – gentle orchestrations that still have the guitar in the lead – and there's also some chorus vocals, in a mode that's kind of an 80s take on the older Anita Kerr Singers approach. Titles include "East Tennesse Christmas", "Let It Snow", "I'll Be Home For Christmas", "Away In A Manger", "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen", and "Jingle Bell Rock". CD set features LOTS of bonus tracks – including "Christmas Carols", "Jingle Bells", "Greensleeves
", "Bells Of St Mary's", "Winter Wonderland (1976)", "White Christmas (1976)", "Jingle Bells (1976)", "Silver Bells (1976)", "Ave Maria", "Winter Walkin", "Sleighbells Reindeer & Snhow", and lots more.
