''Chester & Lester'' is a collaborative album by guitarists Chet Atkins and Les Paul released in 1976.

It was recorded in the mid-1970s when Chet was in his fifties and Les in his sixties. Chet coaxed Les out of his decade-long retirement for this recording. The liner notes state there is very little overdubbing and the majority of the album was live in the studio.

''Chester & Lester'' peaked at No. 11 on Billboard's Country album chart and No. 172 on the Pop album chart. It peaked at No. 27 on the Country chart again in 1978. At the Grammy Awards of 1976, ''Chester & Lester'' won the Grammy Award for Best Country Instrumental Performance. - Wikipedia
