Happy trails, cowboy

No, I'd never heard of Fred Carter Jr. before this obit notice, but I'm on a Louisiana music tear today and am always a sucker for rockabilly. Carter was a guitarist for the Louisiana Hayride, and according to various sources, a mentor to Robbie Robertson and a one-time member of the Hawks (the band that preceded the Band.) He also was the guitarist on Bob Dylan's Self Portrait. Happy trails, cowboy.

"Freeloader," "Not I Pretty Baby," "Happy Tears," "Too Much Love is Spoiling You," and "Honky Tonk Angels"
