On this disc, which contains two full LPs from the early 1970s, the legendary country guitarist Chet Atkins teamed up with younger six-stringer Jerry Reed. On each track, Reed holds his own against the master. In fact, Reed and Atkins complement each other's playing in a relaxed, comfortable manner. Reed plays mostly rhythm on these 21 tracks, but once in a while "The Kid," as he is referred to in the liner notes, steps up to the plate and performs a terrific solo.
On ME & CHET, standout tracks include "Serenade to Summertime," a tune supported by a lush string orchestra, and the Hank Williams gospel classic, "I Saw the Light." ME & JERRY presents many excellent renditions of pop songs, particularly Simon & Garfunkel's "Bridge Over Troubled Water," Hammerstein & Kern's "Old Man River," and George Harrison's "Something." It's easy to tell that these two guitarists were having a great time when they recorded these albums--their liner notes are tongue-in-cheek, the photos are amusing, and the chatter between certain tracks indicates that this was clearly a labor of love.
