Earl Barnes: is from Richmond, Kentucky and usually did not play with Asa's group, although they were all friends.  One of the aggregation's regular members, Gilbert Thomas, had a bank job that unfortunately prevented him from making most of our sessions, so Asa asked Earl to fill in instead.  Normally, Earl sang with his own bluegrass band, the Bluegrass Travelers, which specialized in ‘heart songs’ like this.
