The Jayhawks – Miss Williams’ Guitar


This is one of my all-time favorites. For two reasons. First of all it’s a great song with Mark Olson and Gary Louris singing together in their special and wonderful way. But second and alot more personal, I remember my brother and I going to a ‘Giant Sand’ show sometime back in the early 90’s. It was the tour with Pappy Allen. In the middle of the whole thing Victoria Williams and big red stratocaster took the stage and she took all our young hearts. It was love at first sight. Since then the song about Miss Williams’ guitar gives me goose bumps and puts a smile on my face.
