Meet TOM & JERRY - no, not early Simon & Garfunkel recordings, or the cartoon cat & mouse, but two widely respected Country session guitarists.
TOM TOMLINSON had worked on the Louisiana Hayride in the early 50s and carved out a reputation as a hot session guitarist, before joining Johnny Horton's band - he played on all Horton's hits.
JERRY KENNEDY had been a successful 13-year old Rockabilly singer, 'Jerry Glenn', before also joining the Louisiana Hayride house band, eventually becoming a Nashville 'A' Team regular at the age of just seventeen.
They teamed up in 1961 to cut the Guitar's Greatest Hits LP, and recorded Guitar's Greatest Hits Vol. II the following year.
On these LPs they were backed by the full Nashville 'A' Team: Hank Garland (gtr), Harold Bradley (gtr), Kelso Herston (gtr), Floyd Cramer (piano), Bob Moore (bass), Buddy Harman (drums), and Boots Randolph (sax).
These LPs are serious collectors' items, almost unfeasibly rare, and appeal equally to both instrumental and C&W aficionados.
This reissue marks the first time these albums have ever appeared on CD.
