 James Burton : The Guitar Sounds of James Burton - Listen, Review and Buy at ARTISTdirect
James Burton has a well-deserved reputation as one of the finest guitar pickers in either country or rock, having played subtly dazzling solos on sessions for everyone from Ricky Nelson and Dale Hawkins to Buffalo Springfield and Gram Parsons, and he's also played alongside both Elvises -- Presley and Costello.
However, Burton's virtuoso talent was not paired with a desire to either sing or take the spotlight (perhaps a blessing in disguise), and The Guitar Sounds of James Burton is something of a disappointment for longtime fans of the shy genius.
The performances are solid and Burton is in typically impeccable form, but the arrangements aren't especially imaginative, so if you were hoping for a definitive musical statement from one of the best guitars players to ever touch a fretboard, you're out of luck.
