Essential For Guitarists

"Legend & Legacy is one of the best box sets ever made. Consider this set "Overdubbing 101". If you want a comprehensive compilation of Les Paul's work while he was signed with Capitol Records, this is the one to get."

"Les Paul - The Legend & The Legacy

This is classic material. 4 CD's loaded with one song after another of magic guitar playing. The sound is terrific and Mary Ford adds great vocals to many of the cuts although there are also many instrumentals. The years covered here are from 1948 - 1957 and includes some portions of the Les Paul Radio Show with songs and dialogue between Les and Mary. In addition to being a guitar genius, Les Paul was also an inventor who developed a variety of techniques still used today (such as multi-tracking) and they are on display in this set of music.

Wonderful music, great sound, terrific vocals (listen to Vaya Con Dios with the lights off and you will be amazed at the beauty of the music). This is music made in a different era before rock took over the airwaves. There is nothing in your face about it and there is a 40's feel to the pop tunes but great music stands the test of time and this certainly qualifies.

Highly recommended and worth the extra cost that this set goes for these days."
