    I have the original record on vinyl, with the other version of this song. I don't like this one as well, though it's hard to bitch about Chet Atkins! The tempo on this version is similar to Glen Campbell's cover. I didn't totally approve of it, either ;-). The original is slower, with a dreamy piano riff that kills.

    2 legends on 1 track? Sweet. Professor Toussaint has the chops, the cred, and the history. Man he can play, just not necessarily on this track.

    This is not the track as it appears on Southern Night. This is the version with Chet Atkins on guitar. Nice though

    He's one of the greatest composer, musician,arranjer of this era. Southern Nights is one of my favorites.

    I'm used to the version on the Collection even though I have this on album on vinyl.....wondering if this a newer (modern) version; sounds it.

    He wrote so many hits that made others famous... Go and see him live, his groove is subtle and perfect.
