    Count me a fan since I heard him on the 2016 tour with The Whites and Ry Cooder.

    I just observed that the entire episode is available in another video posted. Albert and Ricky strut their stuff a little in other songs.

    Great musicians and song. I like Restless Heart’s version too.

    Albert Lee is one of the greatest country guitar players of all times, and here's another nice reminder. Back then when he played a tele he also had a tone to die for… Him and Vince Gill are my favorite (plus a handful of western swing giants, from Junior and Eldon to Roy Nichols to Redd…).

    PS: Skaggs is no slouch either :eek:
    PPS: a bit of a pity, though, that Albert Lee's recorded output (at least: what I know) can't stand up to these legendary live performances you find scattered on Youtube … another one being Luxury Liner with Emmylou: look it up if you haven't seen it yet!

    Love his early output with Ray Flake, another great British tele slinger. :cool:
