AllMusic Review by

The RCA Years -- 1947-1981 isn't quite a definitive compilation, but it is the closest attempt at a comprehensive retrospective to date. Chet Atkins compiled the set himself, which means it's filled with idiosyncratic selections that don't necessarily present him at his most representative. Nevertheless, The RCA Years does give a sense of Atkins's accomplishments and the breadth of his talents.
