The 1961 LP re-issue and CD cover of re-issue of Chet Atkins in Hollywood

Chet Atkins in Hollywood is the title of a recording by American guitarist Chet Atkins. The title takes its name from the fact that Chet recorded it in Hollywood. The lush string arrangements are by Dennis Farnon. Chet later (in 1961) re-recorded this album in his home studio, using the orchestra tapes from the Hollywood session. The original LP lists Chet as the producer, the 1961 re-issue lists "... with Dennis Farnon and his orchestra" and also lists Dick Peirce as producer.
