Why have there not been any books dedicate to Jerry Reeds life and music? A good book is long over due in my opinion.

I agree! I always liked and admired Jerry Reed since he came on the scene in the 60's and mostly stayed there. What a talent!

The thickness of the book is deceiving just a warning.
The book is hard to follow with sentences and punctuation.
Very few pictures and is mostly reference to his studio work and cuts.
Nice book to have but honestly.....poorly done.

Phil, I'm guessing that book is nearly impossible to find? I never heard about it!

Never mind, I should have checked first! It's on Amazon for about $40!

A book like the ones the Cochrans did on Chet and Les is what needs to be done.

Eddie, I just bought that book that Phil recommended. It's thick like a Sears catalog! I agree that a book like Russ Cochran's book on Chet would be the best!
