Willie Nelson anyone?

This might not be your typical country, and it grew on me over time:


Stardust by Willie Nelson


I was at an antique store a couple years back digging through crates and just happened to pick a decent copy of this out of the bin as the owner came along. He was a crazy huge Willie Nelson fan. Told me a solid half-dozen stories about concerts he'd been to and a whole bunch of other stuff like his favourite songs and whatnot. Think he liked me and insisted I keep the record.

Also my wife has convinced me that Keith Urban is a decent guitarist.

I had a buddy say rascal flatts isn't country, it's pop. He was a pretty hardcore country boy. Thoughts?

I'll have to check out these other ones. You'd think I would've been super excited for the duet with Johnny Cash AND Willie Nelson, but I was sadly disappointed Sad

^^^ In 1992 my late beautiful precious Billy Joe Royal actually covered a song that was written by Willie.


Link


God bless you and the red headed stranger always!!!

Holly

P.S. This is Billy Joe;s second recording of the song. His first one was a part of his first album that was released in 1965.

Unfortunately, their best work is almost always live. They don't light it up on their albums knowing their vocals are what sell the albums, not guitar wizardry. Finding albums where you can really focus on their instrumental work can be a challenge

You'll hear plenty of guitar on "The Lightning Fingers of Roy Clark"

Link

And Roy could do much more than just country.

Link


For Glen Campbell, check out "The Astounding 12 Sting Guitar of Glen Campbell"

Link


Link


For Jerry Reed, start with The Essential Jerry Reed

Link


Link


For Vince Gill, it's all much the same, very vocal heavy with a little guitar sprinkled in. Most say to start with "When Love Finds You."

Link


And one I forgot to list earlier: Chet Atkins. For a good collection of his earliest work, check out "The Essential Chet Atkins" and for some later stuff, check out his "Neck and Neck" with Mark Knopfler, which maybe the greatest ever example of intricate but tastefully understated playing. Chet also has a couple excellent duet albums with the great Les Paul, "Chester and Lester," and "Guitar Monsters."

Link


Link


Another one I failed to mention is Danny Gatton. He played many styles. His best albums are "Unfinished Business" which is more country and "88 Elmira Street" which has quite a variety and is my personal favorite.

Amos Moses is either the best country song I've ever heard or the worst and I can't tell which, so I dig it... haha.

I can totally see how Glen Campbell is solid with those solos. Malaguena was what I think I was most impressed with though.

I'm really a country music hater for the most part... but I love Amos Moses. Not sure what that says about the song though. My wife, on the other hand, likes country music from that era, and she also loves Amos Moses... one of her favorites.

Crazy anecdote. I first heard Amos Moses in 1973. Toyota was just breaking into the American market, and they were giving away a promotional album that was a compilation with one side being rock and the other being jazz. Each side of the cover was printed to look like it was the main cover, one side saying rock and the other saying Dixie. My parents didn't want the album, so they gave it to me (I was 9). I played the death out of it on my cheap kids turntable. Amos Moses was included on the rock side along with the likes of Jefferson Airplane and The Guess Who. (I also played the jazz side a lot because I fell in love with Al Hirt's trumpet)


[url]

... and incidentally, we also came home with one of these.... thus doubling the gas mileage from the massive Pontiac Catalina that got traded in ('73 was the year of the great OPEC oil embargo).
