 Along with Chet Atkins and Merle Travis, Joe Maphis was one of the most
 widely heard session guitarists from the 1940s until the 1980s, but his
 solo recordings weren't nearly as popular -- which doesn't mean they
 weren't good. The 24 brisk, crisp instrumental tracks on Flying Fingers
 (running under one hour) were cut mostly for Columbia between 1955 and
 1960; the 1955-1957 stuff was recorded between sides by Rose Lee Maphis,
 and she is present there playing guitar, with Larry Collins (featured on
 four numbers, on top of which his sister Lorrie is the subject of the
 title of the Maphis original "Lorrie Ann"), Johnny Bond, and Leon Silby
 joining the guitar accompaniment on the later sessions. In addition to
 guitar, Maphis himself plays banjo and autoharp on various tracks. The
 best showcase to date of Maphis' work, the music features what seem like
 superhuman feats of dexterity, reminiscent of Jascha Heifetz's 1930s
 recordings on the violin, only better -- every note is hit spot-on, but
 the playing never loses its warmth or seems mechanical. Listeners may
 swear that the masters of "Flying Fingers," "Fire on the Strings," and
 "Floggin' the Banjo" must have been sped up, but they weren't. While they
 may constitute highlights, they're not alone. Other high spots include
 "Katy Warren Breakdown," by session fiddle player Fiddlin' Kate Warren,
 and the cover of "Sweet Fern" by A.P. Carter. There's also a lot of variety,
 especially with the presence of the four Collins sides, which rock pretty
 hard; "Early American" shows some strong blues elements.
