Capitol Records' 75th Anniversary Vinyl LP Reissue!

Les and Mary is a studio album released by Les Paul and Mary Ford in 1955 on Capitol Records. The album features ten vocals by Mary Ford. The songs contained in the album are noted for their diversity.

Les Paul was one of the pioneers of the solid-body electric guitar, which made the sound of rock and roll possible, and is credited with many recording innovations. His innovative talents extended into his playing style, including licks, trills, chording sequences, fretting techniques and timing, which set him apart from his contemporaries and inspired many guitarists of the present day. He recorded with his wife Mary Ford in the 1950s, and they sold millions of records. Among his many honors, Les Paul is the only person to be included in both the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the National Inventors Hall of Fame.

Following the introduction of his recording developments in the late 1940s, Les was convinced that his guitar playing combined with Mary’s singing and his New Sound would carry the duo to the top of the charts.

In the early 1950s, Les Paul and Mary Ford were on top of the charts. Listerine suggested one of America’s first reality TV shows, "Les Paul and Mary Ford at Home," but they wanted the couple to be closer to the New York corporate headquarters. The twosome moved to Mahwah, New Jersey where the popular TV Show was filmed in their home. Les said the five-minute shows aired five times a day, five days a week.

Today’s leading recording artists know that their sound is built on the genius inventions of Les Paul and his stellar performances with wife Mary Ford.

Now reissued on vinyl in celebration of Capitol Records' 75th anniversary.
