Format: Hardcover
This book is a must read for anyone into the Electric guitar, or the histories of country music and rock and roll. Albert's career is an amazing journey and Mr. Watts does a superb job of taking us along for the ride.

Format: Hardcover
Biographies can oh-so-often be a mundane list of dates and events chronicling the life and times of person being written about. Derek Watts fills the life story of Albert Lee with colour and anecdotes that leads you from chapter to chapter, wanting to know what happens next. Each chapter is composed carefully and details a particular direction that Lee has taken at that time - a period of 4 to 7 years. It is clear that Watts has researched his subject carefully and has taken time to interview many, if not all, of the people involved in the life and times of Albert Lee. And it says much of Watts that he has been able to get so much from so many in what is such a busy business. I am looking forward to the next project that Watts will publish: it doesn't matter who or what it's about, it is sure to enthrall.

Naturally, if you're a fan of Albert Lee, you'll want this book - it sheds a lot of insight into his life and contributions to music, and makes a worthy addition to your music libary. In terms of style, it's not as engaging as other biographies I've read, but it's very readable and well-researched. I'm glad I bought and read it.
