It´s Time for
Chet...

You don´t have to be a guitar buff to appreciate and enjoy the wonderful talent of Chet Atkins and the vigor and breeziness of his happy-mood style. This is an album for anyone who likes instrumental music with unusual verve and zest, and who responds to the craftsmanship of a musician with complete mastery over his instrument.

Chet Atkins is known universally as "Mr. Guitar." In his talented hands, the guitar transforms into more than a string instrument. It becomes an extension and an expression of Chefs own feeling for the changing moods and tempos of songs. He can play any type of music, and he imparts his own individualistic interpretation and treatment to whatever he plays, from Bach to rock.

Chet was still in his early teens when he became a professional musician and played with both the Dixieland Swingsters and the Bill Carlisle Orchestra at Radio Station WNOX, Knoxville, Tennessee. He developed and honed his unusual style as his career broadened, and he became radio star, recording artist, and featured member of the famous Grand Ole Opry group.

Today, in addition to being a renowned guitarist, he is an arranger and composer of note, and chief of RCA Victor´s Nashville recording center. He teaches guitar, designs instruments for other professionals, and is author of a guitar methods book. He also is in great demand as a soloist and has made guest appearances with musical organizations ranging from jazz bands to the Atlanta Symphony.

In this interesting collection, Chet Atkins demonstrates not only his varied guitar technique, but his writing and arranging talents as well. No less than six of the twelve selections included were composed, written and/or arranged by him.

He digs deeply into musical history—to 1917 and The Bells of St. Mary´s—to demonstrate the brightening effect of his guitar artistry on old favorites. His style then changes rapidly—from fast and furious with Walkin´ on Strings, to brisk and jazzy with High Rockin´ Swing, to bouncy and boogie with his own composition, Centipede Boogie.

He laces sentiment with swing as he runs through an Atkins-arranged medley of Stephen Foster favorites, then slows to emphasize the melody of the romantic ballad, Darling, Je Vous Aime Beaucoup. Whether slow or fast, romantic or jazz, rock or boogie, each note sparkles with unusual brightness and gaiety as the talented fingers of Chet Atkins speak to the strings.


IMPORTANT!
RCA Camden´s monophonic records can be played on stereophonic phonographs. RCA Camden´s electronically reprocessed records with two-channel stereophonic characteristics (Stereo/Electronically Reprocessed) must be played on phonographs equipped for stereophonic reproduction.
