Overview

Although he recorded hundreds of solo records under his own name, guitarist Chet Atkins would have been a legend and icon even without them. As a producer and session player, he helped create the dominant Nashville sound of the 1950s and '60s, and as a pure player, he had few real peers. Taking Merle Travis' picking style, he expanded it into new territories, and his taste, elegance, and balanced playing was as fluid as a mountain stream. This set picks key tracks from throughout his long career, making it a nice -- if brief -- introduction to one of the most vital, if too often unsung, guitar players of the second half of the 20th century.
