Editorial Reviews

Grammy award winning Solid Air Records and world renowned acoustic guitar maker C.F. Martin & Co. are proud to announce a collaborative CD entitled My Favorite Martin. All of the songs on this unique compilation were recorded on Martin Instruments or signature models owned by the individual artists, and many of the tracks were written or recorded specifically for this release. Laurence Juber's pristine solo guitar version of Eric Clapton's LAYLA appropriately initiates the CD. An incredible roster of artists follows with tracks from Nancy Wilson of Heart, bluegrass veteren Peter Rowan, as well as Ukelele master Greg Hawkes and southpaw guitarist Elliot Easton (both from The Cars). The CD continues with tracks from the Joker himself- Steve Miller of the Steve Miller Band , Roger McGuinn , of Byrds fame, acoustic flatpicking wizards Norman and Nancy Blake, California bluesman Kenny Sultan, plus a special cut from one of the all-time greats Tony Rice-playing one of the most iconic Martin Guitars ever! In addition, Prarie Home Companions Pat Donohue adds a tack and fingerstylist Jim Earp lends a classic rendition of Van Morrison's "Moondance". No Martin compilation would be complete without across-the-pond representation from legendary UK guitarists Martin Carthy and Yes guitarists Steve Howe. Don McLean , whose collection includes over 40 Martin guitars, contributes the perfect closing track.

I've had this CD since it was first released in 2008, and it just keeps getting better and better to listen to. Many diverse playing styles, but a common thread of musical excellence and instrumental tone runs throughout the entire CD. Not a clunker in the lot.
