Jerry's unique style abounds on this generous offering. His infectious "full on" vocals and his lively guitar playing (brilliant picking and warm chords) are to be enjoyed in a wide and well chosen selection of his best songs. From the fast and furious "Devil Went Down To Georgia" to the gentle "Don't It Make You Wanna Go Home" and the gentler "Sweet Memories", he takes you along for a special ride. Songs made famous by other greats such as Presley's "Guitar Man" and "US Male" are given Jerry's special treatment and and sound great. Likewise, Croce's "Bad, Bad Leroy Brown" and Rogers' "Ruby, Don't Take Your Love...". If you've heard and liked any of Jerry's songs, take a chance with this album - you won't be disappointed.

"Guitar Man" is an interesting amalgamation of Jerry Reed's diverse musical catalogue with a pervasive country-funk feel, a vibe that's especially prominent on "Sixteen Tons," a song that Reed makes his own here. Many songs are Reed signature performance pieces like "Guitar Man" and "Wabash Cannonball;" even when the songs are covers of songs from recognized artists Reed puts his own unique vocal and fingerpicking spin on them. Mostly these work well (e.g. "Promises," and the particularly excellent version of "Bad, Bad Leroy Brown") though a few aren't as suited to his arrangements. I was lukewarm on "The Devil Went Down to Georgia" in particular (how could you improve on the Charlie Daniels version?), and the ambitious "Folsom Prison Blues" (tackling a classic Johnny Cash song is always tough.) The highly syncopated version of "Blue Moon of Kentucky" is certainly one of the most interesting arrangements on the album, while the vocals on "Amos Moses" are a peculiar blend of styles that reminded me of an amalgam of spoken word, country, funk, and the introduction to "Fat Albert." Surprisingly, it's a mix that works because of Reed's unique talent. It's amazing to think that the same person recorded "Amos Moses" and the classic "A Thing Called Love," which has some beautifully smooth vocals and guitar work. A particular standout is the Reed instrumental showpiece "Honkin,'" which justifies the purchase price on its own.

Overall this is a good collection for fans of Jerry Reed or classic acoustic guitar-intensive music. There are a few missteps on the CD, but "Guitar Man" is a pleasant and upbeat collection representative of Jerry Reed's unique musical skills.

This is just one cd. but it has 22 songs. It has his own hit Amos Moses. And it has Down On The Corner which he had a a hit with as a cover. It also has A thing Called Love. There are songs that you never think of as being done by Jerry Reed. Like The Devil Went Down To Georgia, Bad Bad Leroy Brown and Sixteen Tons.More Folsom Prison Blues. And more hits like U.S. Male and When You're Hot You're Hot. This cd has a little bit of everything.

I've been a Jerry Reed fan for years. This is a very nice collection of his hits compiled on one CD. His voice sounds like when he was younger,
It's a nice addition as I enjoy his style of playing guitar. This 22 song CD is from 1997 but it's always nice to hear Jerry. If you like to see him perform he also did a DVD concert with Chet Atkins at the Bottom Line. You won't be disappointed.

Jerry Reed is the greatest songwriter, guitar player, singer, showman, movie actor in the world. Or should say "was" because he recently left us and is missed. If you don't already know that what i say is true, you might want to get this album or any of several other of his albums and find out for yourself. Son!

I don't think Jerry Reed has ever done a song I didn't like. Some of his lesser known songs are also expertly performed. He's a great picker I enjoy everything he did.

Jerry Reed is a great guitar player. A few of the songs show how good her is. I was hoping for more electric guitar not just acoustic guitar.
