Iron Horse; Enter Sandman.  We've had some of their covers here before, and this one's just as good.

An old favorite I haven't listened to in quite a while came to mind.

Ship of Fools.  From 1989, Grateful Dead.

Great stuff, Dave!  Loves me some harp guitar.

Not listening, but reading.  A short series of comments from Derek Trucks on playing music.

In keeping with the Gordon Lightfoot trend last week, here's my friends, Kenny and Amanda Smith with their take on "Wherefore & Why".

I was actually looking for the title cut of their last album, "Unbound" but couldn't find it. I would just about as soon listen to 'Manda sing as I would to draw breath. :D

A classic - The Country Gentlemen.

And bonus points to anyone (except Gregory) who can tell me why this vid is funny......

Well, I didn't see anything funny about the video, though the picture didn't match the audio; but maybe you're referring to the unexpected nature of this historical antecedent.

The Country Gentlemen recording is a nice performance of the tune; an old favorite that I hadn't heard in quite a while.

And Dave hits it in one! 
There were actually 100 (on the nose) Country Gentlemen over the decades (take that, Mayall & Zappa!).  None of them, however, were Bill Monroe or Doc Watson (a picture of whom is the "video").  Can't help but wonder what the poster was thinking.

Largely because of that recording of "Fox on the Run", the tune became so solidified into the bluegrass lexicon, that even these days it's like yelling "Freebird" out to a bar band. You have to do it... and you better not hose it up.  ;)

If someone starts yelling "Freebird", I thought you were supposed to ask the bouncer to remove the offending overly-inebriated patron; hadn't occurred to me that you would actually play the song.

Last band I did sound for would start every night with "OK, you don't need to yell "Freebird" - we're gonna play it; just later in the night".  And did.

I should have mentioned - I would never yell for "Freebird"!


BTW, have I mentioned lately that the intro to this is hands-down the most perfect guitar solo ever recorded?
