Les Paul - R.I.P.

Les Paul
1915 -2009

The contributions Les Paul made to music are well documented...and little known. I doubt most who are not in the industry realize what huge leaps were made based on his innovations.

I'm sorry that the only Les Paul album I can find in my collection is a greatest hits collection of his work with Mary Ford. Even on those somewhat cheesy songs, though, his nibble guitar work is evident. I was just listening to "World is Waiting" last week, you can't go wrong with "How High The Moon", and just try to keep up with his "Tiger Rag". I did find a couple of stragglers from compilation albums that I've included, as well. Enjoy
