Synopsis

Album Description
Import reissue of 1971 album for artist revered by rock & roll fans for his lead guitar work with Ricky Nelson & Elvis Presley. Considered one of the most influential country players in history. His 'chicken pickin' Telecaster technique added sting to many of Merle Haggard's hits of the 1960s, as well as Emmylou Harris's early albums.

Keep Lookin'

"This album is VERY DATED! He is an excellent guitarist, a legend, but this release doesn't capture his abilities as other recordings have. The story is that Elvis Presley didn't show up for a recording session. However, they had the players and the session time already booked, so they had Burton make this album instead. He had no preparation time.

If you are an all-out Burton fan then maybe this belongs in your collection. (But only as a curiosity). Otherwise, keep lookin!"

"The Guitar Sounds of James Burton My ONLY disappointment with this CD is as great a guitarist as James was when he recorded this (1970) he's even better now! It's still very much worth owning at twice the price."
