Les Paul with Dicky Betts have today’s almost forgotten track

This clip doesn’t really fit the Almost Forgotten concept, as you’ll recognise much of what you hear instantly, but when I went looking for Dickey Betts this morning I stumbled upon this clip…Betts is known to be a champion of the Gibson Les Paul guitar, and here, at the club in NYC where that guitar’s namesake had a residency until he was in his 90s, Dickey drops in to talk and play for the master…so the reason I’m posting it is, simply, to remind us all of what a fine player Betts is…

Greg Simpson firmly believes his career in the music industry officially began on March 14, 1965 when a band gave him ten dollars as commission for helping them find a gig. He hasn’t looked back since then and looks forward to celebrating his fiftieth in 2015 with an enormous party paid for by the hundreds of dollars he’s made since then. His career has covered all aspects from radio for many years, and including working for record labels, artists and, since 1992, Canadian Music Week where he programs the radio stream and manages all conference streams and events in real time annually. He also attends half a dozen conferences a year doing research for CMW and is generally accepted as a knowledgeable cat with a few stories to tell. At the root of it all, though, is his undying love for music and musicians.
