To call Larry Carlton a musical legend would be a bit of an understatement. He has 16 Grammy nominations with 3 wins. He has recorded 26 albums of his own and performed on over 100 albums that have gone gold or platinum. Carlton was recently awarded Guitar Player magazine's "Lifetime Achievement Award." His solo on Steely Dan's "Kid Charlemagne" was listed as one of Rolling Stone's "100 Greatest Guitar Songs of All Time," with the note that, "It's so complex, it's a song in its own right." With thousands of studio sessions to his credit, it would take more room than we have to list this guitar-god's r?sume. It would also probably take quite a while to list all of Carlton's solo hits, but his GREATEST HITS RERECORDED is a start. As Carlton himself states, "My decision to re-record my greatest hits came from a place of gratitude - for my career and to my loyal fans. I've grown so much as an artist, I thought it would be really fun to breath new life and spirit into these, now classic songs." Each song stands the test of time and beyond, with the added bonus of a brand new track, "All In Good Time." Instantly recognizable, Carlton's crisp, clean guitar chords convey joy and enchantment throughout a captivating melody. With a legacy like his, it's a continuing pleasure to know that Larry Carlton not only has his past for us to enjoy, but that he still has a few tricks up his sleeve. ~ BETH LEWIS
