Me & Jerry/Me & Chet

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
This discount-priced two-fer combines the two celebrated duet albums made by Chet Atkins and Jerry Reed in the early '70s. Oddly, they are sequenced in reverse chronological order. Me & Jerry, which won the 1970 Grammy Award for Best Country Instrumental Performance, comes second tracks 12-21, while 1972's Me & Chet, which was merely nominated for the same award, comes first tracks 1-11.

Me & Jerry is the more casual effort, as Atkins in your right speaker and Reed in your left pick their way through a number of pop standards, including "Bridge Over Troubled Water" and "MacArthur Park."
