The Testament recording of Jack Owens and Bud Spires is called <I>It Must
Have Been the Devil</I>, TCD 5016. Also, don't forget that Owens
and Spires appear on Robert Palmer's <I>Deep Blues</I> soundtrack.

<P>Doesn't ring a bell with me, or with Peter Lee (I called him and

<P>Peter Lee recorded Joseph Stuckey (kin of Henry Stuckey who taught
