The only better version of that tune I have heard is done as a vocal  
with self-accompanied solo by the bass drummer of the Los Trancos

(Smily has also been a part of the Washboard-o-Rama at Sacto for many

BTW, we are trying to get portions of the California Repercussions  
performance at Turntable on to YouTube - that was one of the great  
events as well!
