In early 1973, just before the demise of the Starday Record Company, there were rumors in the Bluegrass community that Don Reno had recorded an all guitar instrumental album for that label--for most of us this new King label release is the first real proof that this was more than a rumor, as the recordings had never surfaced through various changes of label ownership. For many the album will be a revelation, though those of us fortunate enough to have seen Reno & Smiley's shows in person well knew that Reno was as good a guitar picker as he was a banjo player. Apparently Don decided to put down some guitar tracks in Starday-King's Nashville studios when his partner Bill Harrell came up hoarse and could not fulfill a scheduled recording date for their band. It's possible that it is Buck Ryan's fiddle in the background here, but the other instrumental parts have been dubbed in recently by Reno's sons Ronnie, Dale & Don Wayne. The 15 cuts are pure Reno and a rare and unexpected treat to find & hear at this late date. Obviously a must for Reno fans and guitar pickers in general! GREY EAGLE, TRAIN MEDLEY, LADY HAMLET, HOT RIZE FLOWER, DIXIE MEDLEY, PEACOCK RAG, TURKEY IN THE STRAW, POLKA ON THE GUITAR, OLD SPINNING WHEEL, TARNATION etc.
