Looking for something bright, and "different"? Well, then, here is the music for you - understandable, melodic, free from dissonant "modernisms"... and yet unusual enough to halt conversation in even the most sophisticated gatherings, while it is played.

For this is Les Paul and his "New Sound"!

A guitar virtuoso of many years' standing, Les Paul now brings us a captivating demonstration of his theory that what is good on one guitar is eight times as good on eight guitars - and to prove it, he plays them all himself!

How this can be done is Les' secret, and he steadfastly refuses to divulge it ... but we do know that the results are bright, gay and intriguing - and filled with good humor.

Here, indeed, is a collection to satisfy that mood for a fresh approach - a real "conversation piece" on records.

Here is "The New Sound"!
