|Stevie Ray Vaughan||Riviera Paradise||A live version of a tune SRV did on his "In Step" album from 1989. The story goes that when he did the original version, at the end of a recording session, he turned the lights down and just picked away; organ and drums added later.||0:10:23 ()|
|Django Reinhardt||Brazil||There are lots of versions of "Brazil" on YouTube, including Geoff Muldaur's great version from the movie as well as the 1939 Ary Barroso original. My fave is Carmen Miranda; you have to check out the video: a mash-up of Bugs Bunny, Carmen Miranda w/a little "Tico Tico" thrown in. The Django version is pretty good too.||0:18:34 ()|

|Del Castillo w/ Willie Nelson||I Never Cared For You||Why am I such a sucker for this music? The romance of the border evokes such cinematic images, riding a horse along the Rio Grande. Or sleeping in the back of a pickup truck in the Chihuahua desert. (Ask me about that one!)||1:42:37 ()|
