    I enjoyed the Dusty vids. Thanks.
    Any info on the white telecaster he uses, strings, etc. He gets a great tone through the silverface in the swing vid. Is that an original or reissue?

    Thanks for the Dusty gear responses. As I thought hardware wise. Would be great to meet him one day and chin-wag string gauges and preferred picks. My two fav tone topics.

    Regarding kool WC Instrumentals, these are the three vids that caused me to fall in love with this music.





    This is still my fav vid on Youtube:

    I think I might put Gatemouth's "Okie Dokie Stomp" at the top of the list also, although it's hard not to go with T-Bone.

    There are so many others, some of which I've lost track of over the years. I had this record back in the 80's, and I haven't heard it in ages (haven't had a working turntable for a long time). Not sure that all of it ever got released on CD (maybe in the "Chronological Classics" series?):

    I can't even name the track now, but there was one jump tune where Tiny made great use of those volume swells. I gotta see if I can track all of this down in mp3 form. Anybody else have that record?

    Tiny Grimes kills!
    There are 30+ of his albums on Spotify. Not your record specifically, but most (all?) of the tracks on there are on Spotify; including the title track; and some kool live stuff.

    I'm pretty sure the "volume swell" tune was Frankie and Johnny Boogie. He does the volume sell thing on the breaks. They're awesome, you can hear the scratchy pot and ever'thing.

    I'm pretty sure it's another one I was thinking of. Pretty sure he did volume swells on multiple tunes on that album, and the one I had in mind was more of an original tune. I want to say that he used the effect near the opening of the track.

    And by the way, my memory sucks. :D

    No doubt he did the swell thing on more than one tune. Frankie and Johnny was the first one I thought of, and it was listed as being on the album you posted, ergo ... Lol.

    Watching Matt Murphy up close his picking technique is really interesting, it's almost a pinch or thumb press instead of a wrist movement..

    as for having a "chin-wag about string gauges and preferred picks" was funny seeing how pissed off Chris Cain got about people asking just this hahaha. So head sup, if you're ever @ a workshop with him, i wouldn't ask him ;)
