Sundazed reissues for the first time ultra-rare 1967 solo release

Featuring a remarkable collection of classics such as "Sugar Foot Rag" and "Little Rock Getaway"

Sourced from the original Imperial stereo masters 

Fretboard fanatics...fret no more! Here at last is the album that christened Jimmy Bryant with the distinct moniker of "Fastest Guitar in the Country." After a run of success with steel guitarist Speedy West on Capitol Records, Jimmy Bryant signed a solo contract with Imperial Records in the mid 1960s. While Bryant's recordings with West established him as a fretboard genius, it was the 1967 release of The Fastest Guitar in the Country that left the disc jockey world wondering if his lighting speed was legitimate. Naysayers were left in awe as they witnessed Bryant's dizzying technique at a DJ convention in Nashville.

Bryant's frenzied fretboard flair is in full effect on his rendition of the classic "Sugar Foot Rag" and "Little Rock Getaway" bearing evidence as to why this is one of the most electrifying instrumental recordings of all time. Never before reissued, this collection of jazz-fueled country pickin' is the ultimate testament of Jimmy Bryant's gift to the guitar world. Sourced from the original Imperial stereo masters, Sundazed is proud to release this ultra-rare album on 180-gram vinyl.
