Editorial Reviews

2012 collection, the CD companion to the glorious book of the same name that Octopus Publishing printed in 2010. It is the first time Ace has devoted a compilation to a musical instrument or a manufacturer of such and we feel we could not begin on a better note than with the story of Fender guitars. Includes tracks from Bob Wills, Johnny Cash, Dale Hawkins and many others. Ace.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
If you like Fender, or like guitars, or like pop culture from the era... or if you're a design buff, a baby boomer nostalgic for good old days... This is a really fun, good read. The photos and layout are superbly done. On nearly every page there are tasteful photos of vintage guitars and amps; and the 'ephemera' -- everything from catalog pages, to hang tags, to Fender Christmas cards. The book is worth it for the retro advertisement imagery alone.

But all that is just the dressing to a great story. Go back in time and feel what it must have been like to be a part of this unlikely little company, with it's 'ugly duckling' Telecaster, looked down on by the majors of the day. I always knew Leo Fender got some things right, I just didn't realize the depth of his ingenuity. I didn't know a thing about Don Randall or Freddy Tavares.

I'm reading it now, and can't put it down. I'm sure it'll be a valued reference book, AND a cool 'coffee table' book, for years to come.
