Edwards Picks On The Beatles is a posthumous album from
guitar legend, Nokie Edwards, who rose to fame in the 1960s
playing with the popular US surf-rock band, The Ventures.
Originally recorded in 1996, the album is produced by noted
Filipino guitarist, Ramon "RJ" Jacinto, and finds
Edwards reworking 13 classic Beatles tunes as well as John
Lennon's 'Imagine' in his own distinctive style. The album
captures Edwards at the peak of his powers; and his
combination of flawless technique with a gift for melody shows
why his Japanese fans dubbed him "The King Of
Guitars." This MQA-CD plays back on all CD players. When
a conventional CD player is connected to an MQA-enabled
device, the CD will reveal the original master quality.

accumulated over his long career. I will continue the sad and
happy journey through every storage tub and will list new items as
I discover them. These items are our history together through his
