Denny Freeman  Acapulco Rain   Favoriting Austin picker-- on the Big Guitars from Texas-- put out a nice album in the 80s on Amazing Records. I hear he is now playing in Bob Dylan's band! 
John Fahey  When the Springtime Comes Again   Favoriting This has been re-issued before but "The Great Santa Barbara Oil Slick" (on Water) is a nice collection of early Fahey work. 
Merle Travis & Joe Maphis  When It's Time for the Whipporwill to Sing   Favoriting Another good one from Sundazed, this 1964 album is humbly called "Country Music's Two Guitar Greats" 
Beacon Hillbillies  Hummingbird   Favoriting Boston band from 1994 on East Side Digital 
Charles River Valley Boys  And Your Bird Can Sing   Favoriting I was a high school kid when I went to the Club 47 to see these guys play. In 1966, this Harvard Square bluegrass band (which included the late great Joe Val) put out a cool album of Beatles covers, now on CD. 
Roy Book Binder  Cincinatti Flow Rag II   Favoriting Fine picking from the folk blues guitar player and storyteller, now living in Florida 
Roy Book Binder  Bisquits   Favoriting Cover of a Bo Carter tune on Roy's "Travelin' Man" CD

Oscar Brown Jr  Rags & Old Iron   Favoriting I just heard, listening to Doug's show, that OBJ died on May 29, 2005 in his hometown of Chicago. This prolific jazz songwriter-- an amazing and important personality--was 78.

Emmy Lou Harris  To Daddy   Favoriting Beautiful cover of a sweet Dolly Parton song 
James Burton & Ralph Mooney  Elusive Dream   Favoriting In 1968, these superb players put out an album-- "Corn Pickin' and Slick Slidin'"-- that had this Tammy Wynette number. They sure can play but, for the most part, the album is way too corny and slick! 
Modern Sounds  Long Gone Lonesome Blues   Favoriting An album of Hank Williams covers, "in modern rock-acid sound"-- no musicians listed, no dates, no info. Very wierd.
