Released on 25/01/10. Jerry Reed was known throughout country music as “the Guitar Man,” singer/songwriter/actor and ace session man.
Rocker Gene Vincent covered his Crazy Legs in 1958 and thanks to Brenda Lee’s 1960 cover of his, That’s All You Got to Do he also became a popular session and tour guitarist. In 1962, he scored success with the singles Goodnight Irene and Hully Gully Guitar and in 1967, he notched his first chart hit with Guitar Man , which Elvis Presley covered. After Elvis recorded another of Reed’s songs, U.S. Male , Reed recorded an Elvis tribute, Tupelo Mississippi Flash , which his first Top 20 hit.
In 1971 he issued his biggest hit, the chart-topper When You’re Hot, You’re Hot , which was also the title track of his first solo album. In 1973 he scored his second number one, Lord, Mr. Ford.
In the mid-’70s, Reed co-starred with his friend Burt Reynolds including all three of the Smokey and the Bandit films; the first, which premiered in 1977, landed Reed a number two hit with the soundtrack’s “East Bound and Down.”
