  • Description

    One of Country Music's truly great guitarists and songwriters, Jerry Reed had been around for many years before he finally achieved crossover mainstream success in the 1970s and 80s.
    But among those in the know he'd been revered for his picking skills since the mid-1950s, having played on countless sessions, while he'd also cut plenty of Hillbilly, Rockabilly, and Country records under his own steam.

    The second of two compilations in a brief "mini-series" anthologising Jerry's early career, chronologically, this set features twenty-six of his own sides (including his first Top 100 hit, 'Goodnight Irene') and eight as a session guitarist.
    Many of these early 45s are highly-prized collectors artefacts, and a lot of Jerry's fans consider these to be among his finest work.

    This is the first time that this body of work has been thus assembled, and several of these sides are hard to find elsewhere on CD.
