...In session work, James employs a number of amps. He added several Music Man 210-150 amps to his arsenal of Fenders in the late '70s...

...His prerequisites in judging good amp tone <sic> is presence without too many highs or lows, and a pronounced midrange...

I downloaded the Elvis CBS special from 1977 which was his last concert two days before he died and was quite pleased when i saw bassist Jerry Scheff playing through a MM head with what appears to be two MM 1-15 cabs. Best of all it was awesome to see James Burton (amazing guitarist)playing through a MM (looked like an HD 4-10). His tone was amazing. Great shots of the gear but i cant figure out how if possible to get the still shots from the mpeg format.

i remember them playing that on tv a while back, as i remember there was a nice array of MM, ofcourse not as many as seen on a typical ABBA stage ha ha ha
