I agree with Bob, Grady Martin's playing was great. I've never heard anyone really sound like him. His timing and note choice were amazing and his playing with Johnny Horton just cracks me up. I need to dig up his complete credits, although I doubt one could be accurate. I don't think he gets enough attention.

Great picture Brian. I had the pleasure of seeing Emmylou and everyone in the mid to late 70's in Phoenix. I think it was in the Celebrity Theater (theater in the round). Help me out Don, it's hard to remember after all these years. Embarassed Her opening act was Jimmy Buffett. Shocked One of the things I do remember was that clear, angelic voice.

I also remember that I wore out "Pieces of the Sky" when it was released in 1975 and was totally blown away with "Roses in the Snow" in 1980. Both records are still in storage downstairs - replaced by CDs.

Oh.... and to answer the question: Clarence, Warford and Burton

I'll chime in with a few of my other favourites as well...besides the obvious on this site, I would add Jerry Reed, just a great feel with the double stops he was know for, Redd Volkaert - great feel and was the guy that Merle should have got first after Roy Nichols left (RIP) and for newer guys I still like Jimmy Olander's feel and the fact that he plays bender. Steve Piticco who is a Studio Player in Canada and will wow you with his work, he plays with a band called South Mountain. You can check out his site at: http://www3.sympatico.ca/spiticco/
Thanks
Dave

No one has mentioned Jerry Donohue - so I will. His bending technique always gets me. Not often mentioned is Arlen Roth, a great player. Obvious favorites - Roy Buchanan and Danny Gatton.

I just posted a new thread with some links to YouTube clips of Adrian Legg, who gets some nice pedal steel effects using Scruggs tuners on all six strings of his guitar, as well as using finger bends.

Mr. Carmen Sardo Would Have To Be On That List Too. He's One Of The Best Chicken Pickers Around!

Hey MarkT I Would Have To Say The Stuff Of Gram Parsons With James Would Be Some Of The Best. Bobby Warford And My Dad Jack Reeves Were Good Buddies, And Warford Did Some Sessions For Him With Some Great String Bending, (The Gunslinger, Mama,Mama, Pleasure, And You've Been Torturing Me).

"Dark end of the street" by Linda Ronstadt, if that was Bob, and it had to be. I don't have a copy now but I wore out my cassette listening to that solo over and over on that song, back in the days before I knew much about b-benders.

Not just Dark End, but the whole album "Heart Like A Wheel" ..Bob plays electric and acoustic, and made the album what it is.

Also, live Ronstadt with Warford is hot, lots of great guitar.

And Hillman's original Desert-Rose album from '84 with Warford on several cuts and also James Burton. Strong album.
