And Rodney on rhythm guitar too right? He also wrote this song if I remember correctly.
The song was first recorded by Rodney Crowell, who wrote it, in 1977. this ELH cut was recorded in 1978. a Large roster was in the studio or various cuts. It would be interesting to see who did what when, eh?
And maybe you saw them do this song in Charlotte on the tour to support that album...late 1978-1979?
Crowell deserves more credit than he gets. What a fine, fine songwriter.
It's Albert, at least on lead... this song, Luxury Liner, C'est La Vie, etc... etc... anything she did in that era included Albert, and most (if not all) of the members in the "Hot Band"... then supplemented by many studio cats.
James Burton was also on a lot of those sessions... but he had a very different sound and style.
I love this live video of Luxury Liner from the same era.... an encyclopedia of Telecaster picking courtesy of Albert Lee...
Yes, he does.
I saw Emmy Lou Harris here in Lubbock in the late ‘70’s around the time that the album in question was out on the market. The guitar player was a short, stocky blonde-haired fellow with fingers that looked like Vienna sausages.I don’t recall his name, but he was a great picker.
Albert left in 1978 to re-join Eric Clapton and at about the same time Rodney Crowell left. Rodney's replacement was none other than Ricky Skaggs (before anyone knew who he was) but I can't seem to find any info on who replaced Albert.
Ricky somewhat suits your description... could he have possibly replaced both (Crowell and Lee) at that time. He certainly had the ability with vocals and instrumentation.
The fellow who was playing that night sang no vocals and was quite short. He played nothing except a blonde tele. His fingers looked nothing like Scaggs’. Mystery...
I saw Albert Lee with Clapton on the Money and Cigarettes tour in 983. Ry Cooder and his band was the ‘warm up’ act.....and he came on stage to play an amp encore with Clapton.....all three of those great guitarists on stage with each other. Great concert. I also saw Lee a couple or three years later with the Everly Bros.
