In 1967, though, Atkins was still trying to find a place for Reed within the Nashville Sound. Atkins added badly-aging harpsichord to many of the debut's tracks, and though Reed, Wayne Moss and Fred Carter Jr. cut loose with gut-string picking on several tracks, including the instrumental "The Claw," there were still the doubled pop vocals of "If I Promise" sharing track space with the sly talking ablues "Woman Shy" and the Everlys-styled "Long Gone." It's interesting, albeit a bit disconcerting, to hear Reed singing so far outside his earthier country sound, and the folk- and pop-flavored cuts haven't the swagger of his blues. Elvis Presley covered "Guitar Man," with Reed reproducing the guitar break from this recording, and "U.S. Male," with the lyrical intro shifted from Georgia to Mississippi.Read more ›
I've ever heard. I've also been a huge fan of Jerry Reed and it is always exciting to me when another album of his becomes available on CD. In this case it was 2 albums and when combined with the recording quality, it was an amazing experience for me to listen to it from start to finish!
