Subject:  Re: Jerry Reed
Message:  He was extremely talented. I have a DVD (available) of Chet & Jerry in concert, and they have a double LP CD release too. He was an astounding finger style picker. I wish he had done more of that and serious music (he did cut Sweet Memories) than the silly stuff (I did like Amos Moses, but not the rest). I saw him live and he was a hoot. Too many of the great musicians are leaving us. There are some good stories about Jerry & Elvis in the 2 volume biography of Elvis by Peter Guralnick.
