I have never heard of this guitarist. Does anyone know anything about him? This is some nice playing.

Parodi's was one of the first LPs I bought - and the most listened to - I always wanted to be able to play Fur Elise like he does.

Liebestraume, No.3 Op.62 - Liszt
The Prophet Bird From Woodland Scenes, Op.82 - Schumann
Waltz No.9 In A Flat Op.69 No.1 - Chopin
Malaguena No.3 From Suite Espana, Op.165 - Albeniz
Study In Blue And White (Cantabile) - Parodi
Clair De Lune No.3 From Bergamasque Suite - Debussy
Fur Elise, Bagatelle In A Minor - Beethoven
Waltz No.14 In E Minor (Posthumous) - Chopin
Allegro Comodo From Fantasia (3rd Movement) - Parodi
Waltz No.7 In C Sharp Minor Op.64 No. 2 - Chopin
Cradle Song Op.49 No.4 - Brahms

Superb playing - and you can still buy a copy - search 'discogs'.

Same here, I think it was on a discounted label, so I could afford it.

Still don't know anything about him. The L.P. was out in the late 60's I think.
