“If an instrument has strings, then Joe Maphis can play it.” One of the flashiest country guitarists of the 1950s and 1960s, capable of playing numerous stringed instruments with great facility, Maphis was known as The King of the Strings. "Dim Lights" has become a honky-tonk standard with countless artists recording versions of the tune, including Flatt and Scruggs, Vern Gosdin, Daryle Singletary and Dwight Yoakam. Joe and his wife Rose Lee often collaborated, and their son Dale is also featured on this album, in keeping with his tradition of making his records a family affair. No surprise then, Maphis was also close with the Carter family (and Johnny Cash) and this album features the song "Mother Maybelle", written in honor of the family matriarch, Maybelle Carter.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
