    Yes. I told Marty that, but he just laughed at me. Marty is just the greatest guy. He deserves a girlfriend like that.

    Well, that is an interesting find for the pickers on the original. That's a heck of a line-up. I never saw the face of the Tele player POP Goes the Country, so I can't determine it.

    I'd recognize those hands anywhere, but if I told you I'd have to kill you.

    It would have sounded so much better with a 3 saddle bridge.

    I just emailed Kenny and asked if it was him. Do you have knowledge that Kenny played on "Pop Goes the Country" or were you just going on looks? It's hard to see in the dark.

    Thanks for the post. I loved all the Connie archives. Kenny hasn't responded yet.

    I got the response from Kenny. He said he did sub on "Pop Goes the Country" from time to time, and he did have a Tele somewhat like that. But, indicated he NEVER wore a ring on his right hand at any point, so it couldn't be him. The mystery still remains. The fingers kinda look like Redd, but all that hair???? Let me know if any of you have any idea who the Tele picker is.

    It's still fun to watch.

    Here's one of my favorites. No Tele content thooo.



    I love that high pitched octave sort of yelp at the end of her notes. My gosh what a voice.
