I think Hi-Fi in Focus is my favorite Chet Atkins album. I have several copies from yard sales and thrift stores and my original from a record store. I really liked all of the arrangements on this album, but Walk, Don't Run was my favorite...Ain't Misbehavin...heck I liked all of them! :D

In addition to the announcement of the 2 re-released LP's, Modern Harmonic made a short video about Chet. They interviewed country music historian, critic and journalist Rich Kienzle who also worked on the Chet Atkins: Certified Guitar Player book that was published by the Country Music Hall of Fame.

The tracks on the website for Workshop are not the final album. These are the same versions in the last Bear Family set.
These are what Chet did in the Studio before he took them home. His work parts.
