interest in putting together the website and CDs for Thumbs.....the sound
quality is just superb, and the site is first class! Thumbs would be so

|"THANKS ERIC ... I APPRECIATE YOU DOING THIS FOR US DIE-HARD THUMBS FANS." Dalton Roberts|
for making this page for Thumbs and giving people access to this great and
unique guitarist. I have enjoyed listening to Thumbs music more than
live performances and tasty, innovative recordings." Matt Miller
“Thumbs Carllile on His Own” is a nice recording re-release by the
critically under-appreciated guitarist, Thumbs Carllile who good-naturedly
spanned many genres with his homegrown virtuosity. He tackles jazz and
country music both with a deep feeling for both and funkiness oozing
between his fingers! Thumbs was the baddest!
Thumbs Carllile “Guitar Wizard” is the product of a brilliant and very original guitarist playing well known soft rock and easy listening pieces with the assistance of Nashville “A-Team” players of the 1970’s. His self taught technique of “lap guitar” is definitely worth investigating!

Eric, you did a fantastic job ! (sounds nice and full , not limp and
compresed) ."On His Own" is Thumbs finest hour & the cd sounds better than
my mint cond. LP! Congrats...
best, Gil Parris www.gilparris.com
Having heard the
brilliant musicianship of Thumbs Carllile live onstage many times, as well
as listening to the original LP recordings, I can honestly say that these
remasterings are as good as the former, and way better than the latter.--
Maggie Van Ostrand Former roadie to Roger Miller
Thanks for the fine work you did in creating the Thumbs Carllile cd’s. I have thoroughly enjoyed them. He was a great talent and it is such a treat to be able to enjoy his music in cd format. Keep up the good work,
|Eric, I have listened, very carefully. I love "Jazz Carllile Style"...the best work (from Thumbs) I have heard... and I have heard a lot ! Everything is clear and precise...good mix..etc. Mundell Lowe http://MundellLowe.com|
I havent heard "On His Own"sound that good since I bought the original LP back in 1974!In fact it even sounds better!!!Great job on the cover work also.Thank you for keeping Thumbs music alive and for the wonderful job you have done restoring his music.

Thank you Eric for putting this together for all us Thumbs geeks &
wannabee's. I had two of these original albums, but now I've got another
50 yrs of learning. Thanks!
I recieved all four of
thumbs carlille albums and a few songs took my mind back to 1952-53 in
grand ole opera in palms garden in frankfort germany. our little group was
called dixie drifters..It was such a pleasure just standing on stage with
him and listen to a MASTER play a guitar with such vigor and with very
little ease Still to this day i am in awe just listening to his music..I
understnd that he has more songs and ablums that i would sure love to get
...thank you so much for your work in bringing a master of a guitar back
in to my life... after 55 years i have started to play once more
but my 76 year old fingers are not quite as limber as they once were---Thank you one more time...
