Man thanks so much for sharing this link. I love it when new treasures are unearthed!

FYI you can stream the album "Son of the South" if you have amazon prime. I have done so in the last 24 hrs and love it.

Here is a gem of a comment on the youtube link you posted from one of the producers:

"Toy Caldwell with Gregg Allman performing a tune that Toy wrote for his daughters.
This was my production suggestion as the Allman Brothers were performing at Mud Island in Memphis - I brought Gregg over to add vocals and B-3 after their show.
Toy was not present however we had a very good mix and Toy's vocals were already finished.
After the session with Gregg I asked him to call Toy and leave a message on Toy's answere machine, which he did.
Toy's wife liked the message so much that she kept the message to play from time to time.
We had a great time doing that record in Memphis with Paul Hornsby and Jim Dickinson producing.
God rest his soul...gfm"

Toy is one of my favorite guitarists, Unique style heavily using his thumb. It's a tragedy how hoarse his vocals became with age. There were some gems on that disc.

Chris Hicks is a monster player and does Toy's tune some justice.
