Les Paul and Chet Atkins Perform “Caravan”

Les Paul and Chet Atkins perfom “Caravan” on the classic album titled Chester & Lester.

   I wanted to share some Les Paul music with you today to memorialize Les the best way there is, by listening to his music. This song is from the recording Les Paul did with Chet Atkins in 1975 and released in 1976, titled “Chester & Lester”. The song is called “Caravan” and was written by Duke Ellington, Irving Mills and Juan Tizol. The interplay between Chet and Lester is wonderful to listen to.  

   As you listen to this song you’ll hear Chet Atkins playing the guitar in the left speaker with Les Paul chiming in with the guitar in the right speaker. This is a YouTube video but it just shows a still picture of a young Chet Atkins. The music is superb so I hope you enjoy this song as much as I do.
