George Benson / Charlie Byrd / Mahavishnu Orchestra / Blind Willie Dunn / Lonnie Johnson

50 Years Of Jazz Guitar
1976 2LP Original Mono Compilation, Pressed At Terre Haute. Housed In A Gatefold Jacket. Gold Promo Stamp On Rear Cover. "Twenty-seven Performances By Guitarists Are Included In This Well-rounded Two-lp Sampler. Sam Moore Is Heard In 1921 Taking A Solo On The Octocorda And There Are Examples Of The Talents Of Lonnie Johnson, Eddie Lang, King Nawahi (Playing Hawaiian Guitar In 1929), Bobby Leecan, Teddy Bunn, Coco Heimal, Dick Mcdonough, Carl Kress, Leon Mcauliffe, Buddy Woods, Joe Sodja, Charlie Christian, Slim Gailiard, Memphis Minnie, Django Reinhardt, George Van Eps, Hank Garland, Kenny Burrell, Eddie Durham, Herb Ellis, George Benson, Charlie Byrd And Even John Mclaughlin. Obviously Not Every Jazz Guitarist Is Represented (Wes Montgomery Is Absent And There Is Only One Fusion Performance And No Real Avant-garde) But There Are Quite A Few Rarities On This Two-fer, Making This A Set That Collectors Will Want To Look For." AMG Review By Scott Yanow.
