A consummate picker and the master of economic understatement and pristine taste, guitar-for-hire James Burton has carved out a reputation as the ultimate sideman, whose eloquent licks embellished and enhanced everything he played on.

Rightly deified for his work with Ricky Nelson and much later, Elvis Presley, he laid down the blueprint for late 60s/early 70s Country-Rock, and has continued to ply his trade into the 21st Century. This compilation presents a unique snapshot of his early career as a sideman, initially as a teenager, recording in Louisiana.

Featured artists include Dale Hawkins, Bob Luman, David Houston, Bobby Lee Trammell, Ricky Nelson, Dorsey Burnette and Glen Campbell, alongside less
readily-known names like James Wilson & The Jimmie-Cats, The Shadows, Maylon Humphries, Tommy Cassel and The Shacklefords, plus a rare, live solo performance recorded at the Town Hall Party. As you would doubtless expect, this set includes a number of collectable rarities you’ll be hard pushed to find elsewhere on CD.
