Sam Phillips and S.E. Rogie walk into a bar…

Listening to SE Rogie today and trying to learn some of his guitar lines on “Twist with the Morningstars”. The echo soaked guitar tone and heavy use of double-stops┬áreminded me a lot of the early Sun Records rockabilly players.

I wonder if these players were aware of each other?

and here’s a Sun Records side that’s got one of my all time favorite guitar solos

S.E. Rogie

“Please Go Easy with Me” is possibly the most charming song I’ve ever heard. Recorded by S.E. Rogie, the great palm wine and highlife musician from Sierra Leone. I’ve got a collection of his songs called, “Palm Wine Guitar Music: The 60’s Sound”, and every track is amazing, highly recommended.

Enjoy!
