Nokie Edwards Crossover - Review
In the music biz, "Crossover" is generally a term used to describe an artist that performs music outside his normal genre, style or classification. However, I guess this is not the meaning for this title. Ever since I have been listening to Nokie Edwards play guitar starting in 1961, he has always impressed me as the most versatile and flexible amongst my favorite group of guitarists to this day. He has an uncanny ability to hear and play almost instantly any melody presented to him. It is this raw inborn talent that propelled him to stardom through the most popular "Ventures" years. Well folks, he keeps on doing just that with incredible ease on this new CD release! You'll hear a smooth styled collection of jazz, rock, country rock and popular songs numbering fifteen - Some I'll admit I've not even heard before. Fabulous tones come from Nokie's custom HitchHiker electric and acoustic guitars and from the talents of a "small stack" of gifted musicians accompanying him as well. Nokie's tasteful use of fuzztone on some numbers will take you back to the early days and memories of the sounds we all loved. Another "3 thumbs up" amongst a seemingly never ending sea of great albums this man has played on and produced. Chet Atkins was a great inspiration to Nokie... Thank your stars we have someone to keep up that tradition of quality, talent and soul attached to the guitar.

Nokie Plays 50's 60's 70's - Review
Aside from my obvious bias as friend and webmaster for many years, I'm always amazed at Nokie Edwards' ability to convert vocal based songs to instrumental lead guitar. This new CD is a great collection of 15 popular songs from what has been the best years of rock and country music. The different period tracks are arranged as a well stirred mixture. Every next song is a surprise and a trip up and down the halls of your memory. It's interesting to note that Nokie has always injected his country music roots in all that he plays... But he does so with such skill that many popular guitarists today have used his licks as the foundation for their own, no matter what style of music they play. This man alone is probably responsible for launching million's of aspiring young guitar players. This album pleasantly reminds me of the days I used to spend all afternoon after school in front of the family stereo record player with my guitar trying to learn to play like Nokie... It's still a challenge even today folks! Nokie has again collected a great group of supporting musicians on this and other CD's he has released. So, if your music tastes grew up with three decades of great music from the 50's, 60's, & 70's, this album will yet be another great addition to your collection and a tribute to the man we all admire.

Bob Sickler

Dear Nokie & Judy,

The new HitchHiker CD of Nokie's is fantastic. Nokie covers all the bases with this one from Jazz to Rock to Country to Easy Listening. The title track HitchHiker could be played on a JAZZ STATION or AN EASY LISTENING STATION, Nokie's ever fluid style is at his vibrant best here. My other favorites are "Sails" and "Good Time Charlie". As I mentioned I play the drums and this album gives me a complete drummers workout moving through the different styles of music. I highly recommend this CD to everyone. If they are not a fan of Nokie's now, they will be after hearing this one!

Yours truly,
Tom Connolly

Nokie and Judy,

I just received the new HitchHiker CD! WOW! What a fantastic combination of songs, and superb sounds! This is one of Nokie's best. Listening to Nokie play the new HitchHiker guitar on the CD is almost as good as in person. Finally Nokie has a guitar that is worthy of his skill and touch! The notes just seem to fly and glide as he plays. I would like to list my favorites, but would have to list every track! I am going to be buying several more CD's for my friends and daughter! Nokie, thank you for the continuing beautiful music that brings love, peace and joy to everyone who listens! Best regards and love!

Hi,

I just received the "hitchhiker" CD today. It is Nice! Nice! Nice! You are a joy to listen to. The Hitchhiker guitar has that deep wonderful tone. My son and I enjoyed attending the festival at Fern Ridge lake and also Woahink Lake. See you next July at the Nokie Edwards Music Festival.

Thanks for such great music.
Tony Kocjan

"Dear Mrs. Edwards,

Just a small but important postscript: I just received Carvin' It Out. Wow! Stunning, this record: Perfect guitar music. More of it! I'm simply roused."

Hans W.F. Landau
              Bergneustadt, Germany

Being a musician myself, I have always loved all styles of music. I have to admit that many of the songs on this CD are memories my father played when I was a boy growing up in the ’50s.

This CD is very special to me because it blends the talents of my favorite guitarist, Nokie Edwards, with the finest in Texas Country Swing talent... The Light Crust Doughboys and Tom Brumley. The Doughboys provide the unique and smooth rhythm foundation for the experienced soloing of Nokie Edwards and Tom Brumley. Tom’s steel guitar gives a haunting liquid beauty to these classic songs. His immense talent and precision is perfectly obvious throughout. Art Greenhaw, this CD’s producer/engineer and bassist/vocalist for the Doughboys, has waited a long time to finally perform with his guitar hero, Nokie Edwards — A treat leaving guitarists everywhere envious.

Nokie (former lead guitarist of The Ventures) comes to this CD bringing his strong, early roots in country music. With obvious bias from Art and myself, Nokie has the fingers, style, tone and precision that launched a million guitarists. His technique continues to inspire young guitarists around the world and earns him the eternal, well-deserved title “King of Guitar”.

Adventure in County Swing” is the only and perfect title for this CD. The blended talents and styles of these fine musicians are an adventure in listening. The cover of this CD gives us a delightful allusion to Nokie’s historical past and a stroll down memory lane. Run, Don’t Walk to your CD player!

Bob Sickler

Thanks to my idol in guitar, Nokie Edwards, my fondest Christmas memories include not only the family and spiritual things, but also the playing over and over again of THE VENTURES' CHRISTMAS ALBUM with Nokie on lead guitar. We have sincerely tried to capture a lot of the "good times-Americana"  sounds associated with guitars, girls, dancing and swing music, and we've seasoned it all with the folk, country and gospel sounds of The Light Crust Doughboys and our southwestern musical heritage. I still play THE VENTURES' CHRISTMAS ALBUM over and over again starting each November, but now I have another one to place in heavy rotation by its side.... A SURF 'N' SWING/FRET 'N' STRING CHRISTMAS!!
