Waylon Jennings - Trouble Man

This is great--Waylon Jennings singing "Trouble Man" backed by the Memphis Boys. The video is from the Highwaymen tour (Waylon, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, and Kris Kristofferson). You can see Gene on drums and Bobby W. and E. on keyboards at about 2:00 minutes into the video--Reggie Y. is seen throughout. I believe that's Mike Leech standing to the left of Gene--but he's hard to identify.

I Wish I Knew -- Solomon Burke

You've got to go here and listen to this sound file.
This is from Red Kelly's blog and he's posting about the fabulous Solomon Burke (who's still singing great!). There's a link to a sound file of "Save It" (just underneath the image of the 45), which was recorded at American (in 1968) and included on the album "I Wish I Knew."

I love the way Gene's drumming propels the whole track and keeps the intensity level high. But Gene does that on a daily basis.

Just listen and see for yourself!
