    Just saw this and have a few additions:

    -All Diamond Rio songs are Jimmy Olander b-g bender songs.

    -All Emmylou Harris songs with Frank Reckard are b-bender songs.

    -All Will Ray songs are b-bender songs; look for the cassette version of the Ray-produced compilation "Hollywood Roundup," with "Heartache Train,"

    -The live version of Michael Nesmith's "Propinquity" with Al Perkins.

    -Souther Hillman Furay's "Fallin' In Love" with Al Perkins. [Did Perkins play the Dave Evans breadboard bender on any Manassas songs?]

    -Michael Dinner's "Great Pretender" and "Yellow Rose Express" with Bob Warford.

    -Ian Matthews' "Tried So Hard" with Bob Warford.

    -Ian Matthews' version of "Propinquity" with Bob Warford.

    -Jann Browne's "You Ain't Down home" with either Albert or Paul MacDonald on bender. MacDonald played when I saw her live at the Palomino a few (heh) years ago.

    There's more, but these songs with Perkins and Warford solos are essential listening.

    Patty Loveless questions:

    -Did Albert play the bender on "Timber" or is it Paul Franklin on steel?

    -Is the intro to her version of Richard Thompson's "Keep Your Distance" pedal steel or b-bender?
