Les Paul is a living genius and a treasure. All of the people roaming around with their i-pods playing multi-track music don't realize that Les made it all possible.
Les Paul and Mary Ford may not be as well known as the Andrews Sisters or Bing Crosby, but they are of the same era. I think one of the reasons they are not as well known in some circles is that people didn't realize what they accomplished. Every track on this album contains music history - Mary Ford's vocals (and whenever you hear female harmony, it's her) are layered and beautifully harmonized. And Les Paul has forgotten more than most of ever knew about guitar.
What makes this most amazing to me is each track had to be laid over the previous with no mistakes. Imagine starting over from the very beginning of 5 or 6 or 7 layers if you make one mistake! It's easier to make a house of cards unless you have the technical virtuosity of Les Paul and Mary Ford.
Mary Ford passed away several years ago, but Les Paul is still going strong at Iridium in NYC Monday nights and the occasional concert at Kean University. See him live, there's nothing like it!
