Editorial Reviews

These 20 instrumentals are plucked from Merle Travis's association with CMH in the late 1970s and early 1980s and present the master fingerpicker in a variety of settings and styles. Travis moves from hard-driving country rags to jazz to pop to Mexican to cowboy with a consistent reverence for the integrity of the melodies and hardly a flubbed note at any speed. Travis is joined on many of the cuts by Joe Maphis, whose flat-picking style contrasts nicely with Travis's sound. Though into his 60s, Travis hardly shows any loss of dexterity, command, or flair. --Marc Greilsamer

5.0 out of 5 stars Very pleasant listening for anyone. July 21, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This CD includes some of the sweetest music Merle ever recorded. Not from guitar complexity but from the stand point of excellent arrangements especially on Swannee and Liza. White Heat demonstates his technical excellence in terms of lightning speed and accuracy.
