June 28

I chose the coffee theme because these next two songs are nothing if not stimulating.  Today we have part 2 of 2 of:

I hit the jackpot with this 2-CD set.

“Chet Atkins: Four Master Classic Albums: 1978 – 1997” which includes:
“Guitar Monsters” (with Les Paul) (1978);
“Neck & Neck” (with Mark Knopfler)(1990);
“Sneakin’ Around” (with Jerry Reed) (1992); and
“The Day Finger Pickers Took Over the World” (with Tommy Emmanuel) (1997.)

If that doesn’t make you about want to fall out, I don’t know what will. I listened to the second two last night and plan on choosing one from each, so today is another double feature. Although I like these two albums a lot, I think the first two are better, not necessarily for the playing but the song choices.

Sneakin’ Around is a collaborative album by American guitarists Chet Atkins and Jerry Reed, released in 1991. Reed and Atkins had done a series of recording collaborations nearly 20 years before this release. It peaked at No. 68 on the Billboard Country Albums charts.  “Here We Are” is a joy not only for the pickin’ but for the repartee between Chester and Jerry.

The Day Finger Pickers Took Over the World is an album by American guitarist Chet Atkins and Australian guitarist Tommy Emmanuel. Recorded when Atkins was 73, this was his last release of original material in the 20th century. “Smokey Mountain Lullaby” written by Chet, was nominated for the 1997 Grammy Award for Country Instrumental Performance.

      I bet those pickers drink coffee by the barrel. Either that or moonshine 😉
