Recording on the album Benny Thomasson: Legendary Texas Fiddler


This is Benny Thomasson’s version of Lost Indian. His version is somewhat similar to Eck Robertson’s earlier version, at least in the A part and albeit in a different key. Thomasson played three parts of two lines each. The first time through the tune, he played a double-length B part, and he omitted the C part the last time through the tune.
