His version of "Lonesome Town" - always liked it the best of all of his work.

Extremely cool, I have been thinking a lot about Rick lately and posted a long tribute on my blog just this morning.

I have some amazing reissues of his early albums. There's such an effortless quality about his singing, and the James Burton guitar is just the icing on the cake. He sounds like he has nothing to prove, and the records just unfold with this kind of precision...that still sounds like rock and roll.
