Album Notes
Congratulations to Preston!

Ladies Night has just won Best Solo Guitar Album in the 2006 Just Plain Folks Awards, the largest music awards in the world.

Preston’s album Metal won Best Solo Guitar Album 2004 making this his second Just Plain Folks win in a row!


Welcome to the new Ladies Night.

This project was originally released in 1996 on another label. As with its immediate predecessor Metal, Ladies Night has been remixed and remastered to match the audio quality of my 2000 release Handwritten Notes.

To commemorate this re-release on my own label, I have included three never-before heard tracks from the original 1995/1996 sessions.

While the two projects were recorded close together in time, Ladies Night had a different feel from Metal. It is a more extreme record, at moments more groove-oriented, at other moments more moody and sensuous. This may have something to do with the rhythms and textures I was exploring at the time. I was striving for new levels of feeling and intensity by stepping further outside the conventions of the guitar.

Ladies Night represented another step forward in my evolution as a musician and performer. I still perform many of these tunes at every concert. I hope you enjoy the new Ladies Night.

Thanks for listening.

World Class Musician at work MUST BUY!
After seeing the man at work I can say he is nothing short of unbelievable. One of the greatest in the world, his stylings simply must be heard.

Avid Fan

Preston Reed is some form of god.
Attended a teaching seminar of Preston's at the Kirkmichael International guitar Festival, and the experience of seeing him perform some of his songs live, and see his technique really encouraged me to look outside of traditional playing methods to develop a unique sound. Truly original and outstanding, i would definitely rate this record as one of the best that i own.


Super re-recording and re-issue Preston. This cd could have easily been titled: Presto! Wood, strings and spirits for the ears! The bonus peices are beautiful. Humbling and inspiring.

First Heard
What an excellent way to spend 45 minutes! I was streaming on Pandora when I first heard Ladies night. It caught me up in the rhythm right from the start. It led me to CD Baby and the rest of the compilation. It's rare that I find instrumentals alone attractive enough hold my attention for 45 minutes. If you share that sentiment, you won't be disappointed by the time spent here.


Is it your first time (with Preston)?
I have all of Preston's records except for this one, which somehow eluded me for years. I bought this because it was remastered and has 3 new tracks that weren't on the original record (that I never owned before...)

What I can say is that Preston's technique has evolved over time and that his first record is very different from his most recent (2000's "Handwritten Notes"). It so happens that my three favorite PR albums are the three offered at CD Baby: if you are new to Preston Reed and don't own any of his records, start with "Handwritten Notes". If you already own some Preston and like it enough to be seeking out another album, this is a great second choice.


Whats parr for a genius?
percusive guitar strummer, somewhat reminicent of prev. efforts, some good new melodies, some same verse same as the first. What a Jig How HE do dat.

Jeff Riggleman

Excellent CD, music is very different and innovative. Recommend highly!
I first heard this CD on a camping trip and absolutely went crazy about it. The music is different, and the musicianship is outstanding! I thoroughly have enjoyed this CD. Recommend it to all my friends.

Harvey Drake

Preston Reed is always refreshing and engrossing to listen to. While this album is different enough from some of his other work to keep you interested, my two favorite albums of his are still Handwritten Notes and Ladies Night. Many thanks to Preston for producing such unique guitar music.

Gareth Sager

Guitar evolves
Awesome sounds, soothing, mezmerizing, groovy, the list goes on and on! Thanks for a great CD.


Just the best
I had the chance to see Preston in concert and I immediately purchased his cd Ladies Night. It was the single greatest evening of music I have ever experienced. What a great talent.
