Back to the country

Clarence White with the Gene Parsons b-bender Telecaster

If the audio stops playing, press stop and allow time for the stream to load.

Another stroll down the country road. From a play list largely suggested by my sister, here's 50 minutes of music from the good old boys. Featured twice this week is the peerless playing of Clarence White. First, barely out of his teens playing with the Kentucky Colonels and then with the Byrds, three years before he lost his life.
