Very simple, if you like Chet, you will like this. He has no bad albums...just good and better albums. This is one of the better ones.

You'd be correct judging by the number of Atkins reviews I have on my amazon.com reviews page that I regard Chet as the best guitarist in the history of the instrument, bar none. That I give this album 5 stars is no surprise, either.

"CGP" is one of Chet's excursions into jazz work. He experimented with jazzier tunes throughout his career, but really took to it after leaving RCA for Columbia and established himself with a whole new cadre of devotees. "CGP" does not feature the dizzying fretwork of his earlier music, but it does show his love of great melody, superb chordal arranging and playing (good chord work is so underrated) and hipness. A man this talented taught us what cool was. We didn't teach him.

It's mellow, lots of keyboards, and has a nice version of Lennon's "Imagine" and the Lovin' Spoonful chestnut "Daydream".

For those interested in his jazzier pop side, this is a good place to start.

Let me start by countering one of the points made by another reviewer - if you love the sound of classic Chet Atkins, there's a very good chance you WILL NOT like this CD.

Don't get me wrong. There's nothing wrong here with Chet's amazing musicianship. What really hurts this effort IMO is some seriously ill-advised production ideas from producer Darryl Dybka. I'm guessing some misguided sap from the record company said to Chet "hey, let's give the next album a more modern contemporary sound!" What we end up with is lots of synthesizers (including the over used dreadful sound of the Yamaha DX7 all over this recording) electronic drum programming (which literally sounds like someone whacking a trash can lid with a big stick), used in a very MOR "Adult Contemporary" style. It's Chet Atkins all dressed up in 80's polish and gloss. Fine for a Michael Bolton or a Ray Parker, Jr. But to me, just sounds WAY out of place for Chet's style.

I bought this one in an effort to round out my already significant Atkins collection. I see know that this one could have easily been skipped. Buyer beware. Get ANY of his other recordings before this one.

The walking bass line of "Daydream" is amazing. Cried at "I Still can't Say Goodbye". "Put Your Clothes On" screams the title at you. "Imagine" is incredible. But the this IS Chet Atkins. Never expected anything less.

There is a simple, but honest song by Chet, about the man remembering his dad. This is the main reason for buying it, but Chet Atkins, even without this song is always "the best".
