Purists may prefer an original Townes Van Zandt version, no argument with that stand...
But, I love Willie and Bob and put them both together, then
add the words of Townes and you have perfection.

Sixty-fiver choices are like the special reserve at the back of the wine cellar - the really good stuff.

thanks for reminding me about Don Williams. Its been a couple of years and I had forgotten just how much I like his stuff.

Mother Maybelle Carter...


With Sara Carter in 1970... they were true pioneers of this genre of music starting their recording history in 1927 and country, bluegrass, folk, pop and and even rock and roll owe them a great debt.


If you play a guitar it may be because Maybelle Carter is one of the first musicians to popularize an instrument that is essential to country music...

"It has been noted by that 'by the end of the twenties, Maybelle Carter "scratch" ... was the most widely imitated guitar style in music. Nobody did as much to popularize the guitar, because from the beginning, her playing was distinctive as any voice.'"
—quoted in The Bristol Sessions: Writings About the Big Bang of Country Music (2005)"
