Lang: backing vocals Bonnie Raitt: backing vocals Bruce Springsteen: guitar, vocals Glen D. Hardin: piano James Burton: lead guitar Jerry Scheff: upright bass Ronnie Tutt: drums Jackson Browne: backing vocals T Bone Burnett: acoustic guitar J.D.

Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

Uh, no. He's dead.
He's now a saint.
I was ten in '63 and was singing In Dreams while strumming my tennis racket. The following year I bought my first 45; Pretty Woman and played it continuously for days. My dad said I was wearing out the diamond needle on his Telefunken and he bought me a phonograph that Christmas. I think it used a nail for a record needle and the sound came out of the needle's arm.
I still remember the days at the teen club and that Wurlitzer juke box playing his music. It was heavenly and kind of magical in my imagination.
One of the things I really appreciated about some his music was the musically spoken words that lead to a moment of silence just before the he and his band would start in with the music.
I totally agree with you Clark, that is the best representation of Roy and his music. It's almost what I would have expected had I stumbled into a smokey lounge in the Sixties to find him playing. The musicians were awesome, especially the girls on vocal backup. The guitar work by Burton and Springsteen was a perfect compliment to the set.
