Virginia Carllile
"Thanks 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 anyone's. Incredible
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!

Dave Chamberlain ”Sagebrush Boogie” WRFG Atlanta 89.3
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...
Gil Parris  
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,

Gary Liden
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
Hi Eric,
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.
Joe Campbell Huntington Beach,California
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!
Redd Volkaert
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...
