Re: Subject: Re: [Harp-L] 'moonshiner' movie with great harmonica soundtrack

Tommy played Spah one year that the Original Harmonica Band did. We all flew in from LA together. It was an excellent opportunity to sit a chat with Tommy on the plane.

His craft is unparalleled on the instrument. If you do get a chance to talk to him he is quite accessible and a nice guy.

Tommy Morgan did play the music for at least one of these movies...maybe all of them. They're what I was thinking of...with moonshiners, a Sheriff and car chases.
