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 ›

Two early Jerry Reed vinyls now on one CD, though I got them both on LP I bought this one and it's a "MUST". Jerry did sooo many great records, thank you!
