Tobacco Road

“Tobacco Road” was written and first recorded by John D. Loudermilk in 1960. The 1964 version by the Nashville Teens (in spite of the name they were a British group) reached #16 on the US charts and the tune has since become a standard across several musical genres.

I have given it a “Classic Rock” setting.

In Memory of Elizabeth Reed

“In Memory of Elizabeth Reed” is a track from the Allman Brother’s Band debut album. Written by Dickey Betts, it is one of their first instrumental jam tunes.

My arrangement deviates slightly from the original, primarily in the “jam” section, where a Latin feel is substituted for the rock of the original.
