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?

Thanks for suggested additions....but I'm done for now....want to spend time playing (which is why I started playlist in first place....to get tunes I could hear and then try to replicate)....

Please feel free to start another B Bender playlist if you like....the more the merrier....
