Reviews:

''Almost Alone'' is an album by Chet Atkins. He was 71 at the time of the album's release. It is almost all solo guitar instrumentals. "Jam Man" won the 1997 Grammy award for Best Country & Western Instrumental Performance.

Chet replaced the two low strings on a Country Gentleman guitar with bass strings on "I Still Write Your Name in the Snow". There are no overdubs except for "Jam Man" and "You Do Something to Me". "Jam Man" uses a musical effect of the same name.

As part of the promotion for the release, Chet signed 125 Gibson Epiphone guitars that were given away in contests around the country. - Wikipedia
