  6. Feb 21,  · "Road Song" has become a Montgomery classic, and has been covered by several other guitarists over the years. "Greensleeves" is the barest of all the tracks and gives us a hint of what this album could've been. "Fly Me To The Moon" is another tune buried with non-essential noise, although again Wes' guitar sizzles throughout.
