Guitar Legend - The First Unplugged Album Reissued
Michael Paul Richards | UK | 11/14/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"With influences from Chet Atkins, Les Paul George Barnes and others Duane Eddy quickly realised the full potential of the electric guitar and along with producer Lee Hazlewood and mentor Al Casey he developed a totally unique style which revrberated around the world. His admirers included The Beatles, Dave Davies of The Kinks and the Bristish Invasion as well as those from his home shores. His commercial success led to this project which suprised the music world at the time as it was all acoustic reflecting on his musical heritage. The album is quiet and moody - quite different from the frantic surging hits. Jamie have found the original masters after years of searching and the presence is captivating when you listen to "In THe Pines", "Old Smokey". "John Henry" has an erie but evocative start and builds into a superb version.Duane Eddy is a true guitar legend who has influenced generation upon generation. This is a recording from early in his career which is essential to any serious collectors collection."
