Bobbie Gentry Ode To Billie Joe album by same name. 8/21/1967 Terry Rangno played bass on those album sessions. (wiped). I played music with Terry for 15 years, and I play a Gretsch. 6 degrees. Photo still from those sessions photo circa 66/67 of Terry Steve Earle Billy Austin The Hard Way 1990 “I had an absolutely mint, no–binding, no–corrosion 1958 Gretsch 6120,” Earle recalls. “It had everything: the cable, the original literature in the case. And I pawned it for $150 when I was shooting dope.” Earle lists the Gretsch as one guitar he wish he could have back.
