    +100000 on the first Paul Butterfield album

    and the Booker T....man, you have some darn good taste
    The Bill Withers album "Just As I Am" has Booker T playing some sweet tele stuff himself.

    The Dwight Yokam stuff with Pete Anderson is some of the best modern tele type stuff.

    A great place to see Burton in action is the DVD
    Elvis: That's the Way It Is (1970).
    The band is hot, the music's great and Burton
    and Presley are in top form.

    Some of these are abit more diverse than those suggested- what sort of music are you looking for? That's quite a large time span! These are the obvious ones (for me) with dominant tele usage.

    The eighties in particular was very diverse- probably why you're abit lost with it- there was metal, glam, punk, new-wave, inde (pretty much any indie music is either a tele- a strat or a ricky)- thats just popular british music, and a tele was pretty much always used somewhere!

    Radiohead- OK computer (or any other radiohead album- but this is the best to start)
    The Police- Reggatta de Blanc (or any other)
    The Clash- london calling
    Jeff Buckly- Grace
    Jeff Beck- Having a Rave-Up with The Yardbirds (or other early beck)
    Block Party- Silent Alarm
    Pink floyd- animals (or any syd barret or early gilmour stuff)
    Led zeppelin- early albums (and the solo on stairway to heaven)

    Brad Paisley:

    Good stuff on 5th gear, personal favourite is probably Mud on the Tires though. Or even his new instrumental album Play.

    go for the lot in fact!

    What? Did you guys forget about Dan Baird's "Love Songs for the Hearing Impaired"? You have to at least listen to it once.

    Last Chance for a Thousand Years is a great Dwight album - it's a compilation of many of his hits and Pete Anderson is prominently featured on them. Guitars, Cadillacs, Etc., Etc. would be a good choice also, as would Hillbilly Deluxe.

    Tele albums

    My favourite all Tele album is:

    Jason & the Scorchers - Midnight Roads and STages Seen.


    A live Country Rock album with a Tele through a 4x12 cab just roaring. That's what I'm talkin' about. :cool:
