If you're looking for a collection of how the electric guitar changed a number of music genres, this is it. This collection does a good job across the entire gamut of the electric guitar, and how it was used in several genres. Included are good/great examples of blues, r&b, jazz, r'n'r, and even a little c&w. The digitally remastered sound is very good overall. The jump from genre to genre can be a bit jarring at times, but marveling at how the electric guitar can so easily fit into so many types of music makes the genre a non-issue. A good example is Disc 2. From "Maybelline" (Chuck Berry), to "Hide Away" (Freddie King), to "Have Guitar-Will Travel" (Scotty Moore Trio), to "West Coast Blues" (Wes Montgomery), to "Out Of Limits" (The Marketts), to "Taking Off" (Milton Brown And His Musical Brownies), To "Miss Ann's Tempo" (Grant Green), to "Guitar Bustin'" (Arthur Smith), to "Nuages" (Django Reinhardt), the scope of this collection is very wide.
