With his prestige in the executive suites at RCA and in the hearts and minds of Nashville musicians never higher, Chet Atkins seems to be interested in just making music here, without any thoughts of getting a hit. He freely alternates among nylon and steel-stringed electric, classical acoustic, and resonator guitars here - perhaps the title should have been "Me And My Guitars" - sometimes using a rhythm section, sometimes hooking up with Lenny Breau, or even going it alone on Don McLean's "Vincent.

Chet Atkins - Music City News, 1996. He was the guitar player of the 20th Century. First a guitar he designed with his name on it. Then, a guitar course in his name, and finally, a hit single. In 1955, eight years after Steve Sholes signed him to RCA Victor, Chet Atkins's instrumental rendition of the Chordettes' pop vocal hit Mister Sandman gave him the first hit single of his career. He wasn't just the first country instrumentalist to become a successful album artist; he sold to pop fans who wouldn't have considered listening to other country musicians. During these six years, Atkins became a full-blown RCA producer. Then, just as he gained confidence in the control room, he faced the biggest challenge of his career as rock 'n' roll upended country music's rising popularity.
