While its running time is only 24 minutes, this CD contains some of Atkins' finest recorded moments, with inspired and well conceived renditions of pop tunes such as Paul McCartney's "Yesterday" and "Michelle," and Paul Simon's "Mrs. Robinson." Atkins plays these classic tunes as if he penned them himself.
On "Rocky Top" and his trademark hit, "Yakety Axe" Atkins displays his superb technique; but what really makes these tunes, and his playing in general, great is his use of this technique. Always playing with a careful and lyrical ear for the melody, Atkins understands the delicate balance between showiness and serving the song, and the importance of putting one's heart into the music. Indeed, SUPER HITS' strong emotional core proves reminds us how affecting music can be.
