Syd Straw & Dave Alvin 1989

Two very special people to everyone who follows the Skeletons. Here is a great capture of Syd Straw and Dave Alvin playing a song from Surprise, the record she made prior to visiting Springfield to record War and Peace.

Elvis opener re-recorded his gems with The Skeletons

Rudy Grayzell toured with Elvis and recorded this record with The Skeletons in 1998. Now on Spotify, check out the blistering D. Clinton Thompson solo on "Judy". (Heck, his licks are all over this record) (Seeing this on mobile? Spotify app launches)

If you play the 1990 Skeleton-powered classic "Jonathan Goes Country" by Jonathan Richman, you'll notice the steel guitar playing of Tom Brumley. (1935 - 2009). Here he is in all his glory as a Buckaroo with Buck Owens. To check out a nice track from Richman's record, try, Since She Started To Ride (on Spotify)
