One Of The Greatest Living Acoustic Guitarists On 180g 2LP!
Featuring 5 Brand New Songs + Re-recorded Tracks Of His Best Originals!

The Best of Tommysongs is a double album that features some of Tommy Emmanuel's best original works. He solely wrote, produced and recorded all the songs on this record. Tommy has been playing some of these songs for over 30 years, and they have evolved over time. He wanted to re-record them to suit the modern arrangements and to make them sound BIGGER than ever! The record also has 5 brand new songs, including the heart-thumping "Fuel" and the beautifully melodic "Song For A Rainy Morning".

Tommy Emmanuel, CGP has achieved enough musical milestones to satisfy several lifetimes. Or at least they would if he was the kind of artist who was ever satisfied. At the age of six, he was touring Australia with his family band. By 30, he was a rock lead guitarist playing stadiums. At 44, he became one of five people ever named a Certified Guitar Player (CGP) by his idol, music icon Chet Atkins. Today, he plays sold-out shows everywhere from Nashville to Sydney to London.

Influenced by the Merle Travis/Chet Atkins fingerstyle of guitar picking, Tommy developed a style of solo guitar playing that encompasses the range of a whole band - covering drums, bass, rhythm lead guitar, and a vocal melody simultaneously. While some artists take a band on the road, Tommy builds a complete sonic world entirely on his own with no overdubs or loops.

Tommy has multiple Grammy nominations, countless Guitar Player awards, numerous magazine polls naming him the greatest acoustic guitarist alive. He's grateful for it all. For Tommy though, the greatest reward is always the same - to make the next great record, and to see the beaming audience at the next great show.

"Songs are our teachers. They show us the depth of the human race and its unrelenting desire to create." - Tommy Emmanuel, CGP
