It was good indeed - and if you liked that, there's a netflix show called "Hired Guns" that talks about the "musicians behind the musicians" that you may enjoy as well.

It's amazing what an earth shaking amount of music came out of that obscure place and a little hole in the wall called Sun Records.

The recording studio equivalents of garage bands.

Tonight on Detroit Public Television was "Very Best of the Highwaymen, Live at Nassau Collesium".  A cool show with Waylan, Willy, Kris, and Johnny.  After that was Alone in the Wilderness.  A really cool story about Dick Proenneke, a guy at 51 years old went off to live in the wilderness of Alaska.

I've seen that,  very cool,      the highwaymen would have been nice to watch,  we got a show on some euro trash blues player who nonone in the us has ever heard of.. SRV could have blown him away with one chord..
