Comments

Gatefold cover.

Inside The Groove

An outstanding guitar choirs with large band.

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

George Barnes (1921-1977) was a too famous studio guitarist, and one of the earliest electric-guitar players. This album, along with his awesome guitar play, a nice swinging sound covers all around the tunes. A well listeningable, jazzy, comfortable, and exciting sound!

Strictly Personal Rating (to what extent I could enjoy this album)

7 out of 10
