"Anyone interested in 60' music and guitar then that CD is for you. The CD is full of brilliant guitar tecniques and wonderful voice of Mary. Les recorded his guitar in a multitrack way which makes his guitar like guitar orchestra. You'll not be disappointed for sure."

"Love Les & Mary? Put aside the Capitol stuff for a while and groove to the Columbia stuff. Technically lightyears ahead of the early Capitol fare, it's sonically marvelous! Mono or not, I use this CD to help evaluate new speakers, new amps and different CD players. Not only is it helpful in that regard, but it's just total EAR-CANDY. To illustrate my point...compared to these Aston-Martin tracks, the Capitol fare is a quaint old jalopy.The more I listen to Les, (wow...that's a play on words!) the better he sounds. His pitch is ALWAYS atomically correct and his phrasing is impeccable. The les I listen to Mary, the MORE I want to hear her. The album is convincing me that she's the most under-rated golden-era songstress of all! Sure she was popular...sure she was successful...but does she have 'it'? YES. Take some time to let her subtle phrasing and her smooth delivery grow on you. It's an acquired taste. Like fine wine or sumpthin'.TOTALLY RECOMMENDED. Don't worry about chart history. Don't worry about record contracts or rumors of matrimonial dischord. Don't worry at all. Just spin the disc, crank the watts and propel your listening invironment to audio stratosphere."
