New James Burton Album

James Burton Album: James has just released an album, titled “God Loves You”. The album is a “family project”, with James’s son Jeff on lead vocal, and two of his wife’s nieces.

James’s guitar picking dominates the album from beginning to end with some of the most impressive guitar solos he has ever recorded. Although this is a spiritual album, the 16 songs on it vary from pure gospel over country to some rock ‘n’ roll. James even does a song by himself, Track No. 11: “People Get Ready”. Other highlights are the guitar version of “How Great Thou Art” and the super fast opening track, “God Is With Us”. Currently, James is talking to some interested major labels to release the CD commercially. Meanwhile, this strictly limited promotional CD is another treasure for collectors of Elvis related material.

The guitar on the cover is a hand carved Fender telecaster.
