This album is not an especially good showcase for Travis as an instrumentalist. Sure, he sounds great, but the vast majority of the tunes are actually vocal numbers with most having him backed by a modest Texas swing line-up. As such there are many songs where the horn player, piano, player, steel player, etc... are featured as much as much as Travis's guitar playing. Walking The Strings remains a far better showcase for Travis as a guitarist, and his original recordings are a far better representation of the recordings that made Travis a legend. This is a pleasant album, but not the first thing someone looking to learn about Travis should check out.
