Overview

Greatest Hits [Primo]

It's virtually impossible to imagine modern music without the contributions of Les Paul. Not only was he a brilliant jazz guitarist with no fear of going pop or country, he literally made the template for how a good electric guitar should be made when he designed his famous Les Paul model for Gibson Guitars. Add in the fact that he single-handedly invented multi-track recording with the release of "Lover" (included here) in 1948, and his influence is pervasive, if not always acknowledged, even in today's 21st century hip-hop world. This budget two-disc, 40-track collection brings together some of Paul's solo sides as well as sides he did with his wife and singing partner, Mary Ford, and while this set is pretty bare-bones as far as annotation, it demonstrates Paul's (and Ford's) unique contribution to pop music at an affordable price.
