Interesting thing about "Heart Over Mind". In his live show, he did the Ray Price arraingement, complete with the iconic fiddle intro and break (done with twin fiddles). He usually opened the second set with it. Pretty stout.

Very Happy Howdy! Amen W.J.! I got to meet Mel at his show in Branson in June 2001. We talked for a minute on the Scottish Rite. He was one fine person and will be missed.
