Les Paul & Mary Ford: All The Best (2-LP)

(Capitol Records) 30 tracks - High Quality Europe (NL) pressing with lined innersleeves

Les Paul was one of the pioneers of the solid-body electric guitar that made the sound of rock 'n' roll possible, and he is credited with many recording innovations. His innovative talent also extended to his playing style, including licks, trills, chord progressions, fretting techniques and timing that set him apart from his contemporaries and inspired many contemporary guitarists. In the 1950s, he and his wife Mary Ford recorded records that sold millions of copies. Les Paul is the only person to be inducted into both the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the National Inventors Hall of Fame.

After the introduction of his record developments in the late 1940s, Les Paul was convinced that his guitar playing combined with Mary's vocals and his New Sound would propel the duo to the top of the charts.

By the early 1950s, Les Paul and Mary Ford were at the top of the charts. Listerine proposed one of the first American reality TV shows, Les Paul and Mary Ford at Home, but wanted the couple to live closer to their New York headquarters. The two 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 artists know that their sound is based on the genius inventions of Les Paul and his great performances with his wife, Mary Ford.

Les Paul and Mary Ford

Born on Jan. 9, 1916, in Waykesha, Wisconsin, as Lester Polfuss, Paul started out playing guitar in hillbilly bands and then moved on to jazz combos, first with the Les Paul Trio in the late Thirties, before be-coming the guitarist with first Fred Waring and later Bing Crosby. He had always been interested in electronics and in 1941, while in hospital after a car crash, he had the idea of making a solid body electric guitar — the log' — which he eventually sold to Gibson as the 'Les Paul Guitar'. It was finally issued by the company, complete with its famous sustaining pick-ups, in 1952.

In the late Forties, he met Mary Ford — born on July 7, 1928, as Colleen Summer, in Pasadena, California — and they began performing and recording as a duo, unsuccessfully, for Decca and Columbia. After their marriage, they moved to Capitol and almost immediately had a series of million-sellers — Nockin' Bird Hill', 'How High The Moon' and The World Is Waiting For The Sunrise', records which are remembered more for their originality.

Mary Ford's voice complementing Les Paul's 'talking guitar' — than anything else. Their hits ceased in 1961, but by then Les Paul, who had built the first eight-track recorder in 1954, was far more interested in experimenting with guitars than playing them. Since his divorce from Mary Ford in 1963, he has devoted himself to 'reinventing the guitar'.
