Guitar Monsters CD

Chet Atkins & Les Paul
Guitar Monsters CD

After their 1976 smash Chester and Lester guitar duet album,
Chet Atkins and Les Paul reunited in 1978 for another round of
pickin’ and grinnin’ on Guitar Monsters. The front cover illustration
shows a couple of dragons dueling, and it’s appropriate;
for all the often-hilarious byplay between the two (“I’m Your
Greatest Fan” is a must-hear routine where each of them tries
to compliment the other by attributing—and playing—
famous guitar instrumental pieces by other guitarists to
each other), there’s no question that these two legends
were friends and rivals, as each trade-off between solos
just sets the bar higher. A must for guitar lovers, guitarists
and/or gearheads (those are Gretsch, Hascal Haile, Del Vecchio and of course
Gibson Les Paul guitars they’re playing), Guitar Monsters appears here for the first time on
stand-alone CD with added notes by Chris Morris and a fresh remastering by Mark Wilder at
Battery Studios in NYC. An absolute delight.
