The great Robben Ford, whose always been one of our favorites, really got our attention this year when he announced that his new album, Bringing It Back Home, was recorded using his prized vintage Epiphone '63 Riviera. Ford has his Riviera on tour with him and recently made his third appearance on Mountain Stage, which is taped live at the West Virginia campus in Morgantown, WV.
Along with founding the Yellowjackets, Ford has graced sessions for Bob Dylan, George Harrison, and even found time to play lead guitar on KISS' "Creatures of the Night." But Bringing It Back Home is about reaching back to the basics--great rock and roll, R&B, and of course, the blues.
For his Mountain Stage taping, Ford kicked up a killer version of Dylan's Blonde on Blonde classic, "Most Likely You Go Your Way and I'll Go Mine." Check it out here
