Guitaration Gap - Joe & Jody Maphis

Fire And Rain
The Letter
Guitaration Gap
Joe & Jody Maphis
Chart CHS-1042
1971

A few tracks presented in this set (above) were obviously arranged for the "younger guitaration". Those fine tracks are mixed in with more traditional approaches.

The cover features Joe's double-neck Mosrite guitar, specially built for him by Semie Moseley (giving a boost to Moseley's fledgling career as a guitar builder).

From the back cover: Several years ago, I had the privilege of recording a song written by Joe and Rose Lee entitled, "Dim Lights, Thick Smoke and Loud, Loud Music." They also recorded one of my instrumentals entitled "Randy Lynn Rag." In observing the changes in music styles though out the years, I think the young ideas and talent of Jody Lee, combined with that of his famous father, has provided for an excellent and exciting album. There is never any question of Joe And Rose Lee's performances, and on this album, I heard a sound that you hear in the young generation's sound of music. – Earl Scruggs.
