Product Details

What a guy! What a picker! What a set! A seminal, and hugely-praised set from one of the most influential musicians in country music. It not only includes all of his Capitol recordings from 1946-1955, but it also includes incredibly rare recordings for King, Bel-Tone, and other small labels, some done under pseudonyms like Tem Martin and the Shepherd Brothers. The famous Merle Travis guitar is featured on the rare guitar-only albums, and the hits here include Divorce Me COD, Steel Guitar Rag, No Vacancy, and Cincinnati Lou. As always, though, the real story is in the rare singles, album cuts, and unissued recordings where Merle's guitar and his winning humor shine. A feast for any fan of finger-style guitar!
