LES PAUL IN '68

Original Released in LP London SP 44101 
(US, 1968)

This album, originally released in 1968 on London / Decca UK's Phase 4 label devoted to high quality stereo recordings for the HiFi market at the time, is a classic in that it features Les being briefly coaxed out of retirement to record this album of stereo instrumental remakes of several of his classic hits including "How High The Moon," "Lover," "Sleep," "Tennessee Waltz," etc. recorded on his then new stereo 8-track multitrack tape recorder manufactured by Ampex under his standards and still playing great at the time on his Les Paul guitars made by Gibson Guitars. He also features 3 songs on this album that were not originally recorded for Capitol by Les, "The System," "Los Angeles," and "Golden Earrings." Because he has become an icon and has been a major force in the development of high fidelity sound, Phase 4 decided that he should be the first artist being recorded for the label, and this album is the result.

Les Paul (Lester William Polfus) faleceu o mês passado, no dia 13, com 94 anos.
Mary Ford (Iris Colleen Hatfield), hoje com 85 anos, que com ele foi casada até 1963, deu a sua voz como o contraponto à guitarra de Les.
Seria muito interessante uma boa antologia dos dois.

I don't think it's accurate to say Les Paul was "coaxed out of retirement" to make this album. Far from retiring, he was still playing up until his recent death.
